The National Pest Management Association (NPMA) and the Confederation of European Pest Management Associations (CEPA) will partner once again to offer a global summit for pest management companies and their clients related to public health pest management and food safety issues.
“We are excited to be partnering again with CEPA for this unique conference,” says NPMA CEO Dominique Stumpf, CAE, CMP. “Our hope is that this conference series will provide both the U.S. and European industries with the education and tools needed to grow the industry as a whole.”
The Global Summit of Pest Management Services for Public Health and Food Safety will be held April 2-4, 2017 at the New York Hilton Midtown in New York City. Designed to be a biannual forum, alternating between Europe and the U.S., the Summit will look at pest management services in terms of the needs of the food, food service, retail, hospitality and other service business sectors. Participants will address emerging issues and evaluate — with clients and other relevant stakeholders — which action steps are required to respond to these future needs.
“The continued professionalization of the pest management service industry and its growing expertise across all areas of the food supply chain will enable pest management professionals to play an increasingly important role in anticipating and reducing food safety and public health risks,” says Bertrand Montmoreau, CEPA chairman. “This conference will allow our industry to demonstrate how we can further enhance this capacity. CEPA is looking forward to the second edition of the Global Summit for Pest Management Services as it opens up new opportunities to engage in knowledge sharing with our American partners and showcase our industry to clients and citizens.”
