PMP Growth Summit: A new wrinkle in networking

Imagine spending three days and two nights at a gorgeous Florida resort, away from theme parks and other distractions. You’re surrounded by your peers in various social and educational settings. You’re also meeting one-on-one with several leading industry suppliers with whom you’ve only been able to chat briefly on a crowded trade show floor — if you’ve ever even met them directly at all.

Additionally, you’re interacting with Pest Management Professional (PMP) staffers, who are interested in your thoughts and insights about all facets of the industry, as they continue to shape their coverage.

All of this was a reality for inaugural PMP Growth Summit attendees, who gathered from throughout the country to participate in our event Jan. 31-Feb. 2, 2017. We were inspired to host the Summit based on the successes of our sister publications in the landscape, golf and propane service industries. We followed a similar format, but were able to tweak the Summit to showcase two of our columnists — PMP Hall of Famer Dr. Austin Frishman and “Start-up Diarist” Pete Schopen — who shared their experiences and lessons learned. They were on hand the entire event to answer questions one-on-one.

Feedback from sponsor and PMP attendees has been overwhelmingly positive. We look forward to hosting our PMP Growth Summit annually, making minor tweaks and enhancements as we grow. If your company generates $1 million or more in annual pest management revenue, and you’d like more information about joining us next year, drop me a line at
