You hear it every year: Come to PestWorld! See the newest and best the industry has to offer. Learn about the latest research and technologies. Take advantage of the many networking opportunities.

Well, there’s a reason you hear this every year: It’s all true. From the packed, 100,000-square-foot exhibit hall to the popular educational sessions to the camaraderie at the receptions, parties and golf courses, PestWorld is the best opportunity you’ll have all year to plug into what’s happening in the industry.

There are many reasons to attend the National Pest Management Association’s (NPMA’s) PestWorld 2018 event in Orlando, Fla. You will have an opportunity to connect with more than 3,000 pest management professionals (PMPs), increase your knowledge by attending any of the 70 educational sessions available, and you can explore the latest industry technologies showcased on the exhibit floor.

Exhibit hall: If you’ve been to PestWorld in recent years, you know the initial excitement you feel when setting foot in the exhibit hall for the first time. You can expect to find aisle after aisle of manufacturers and distributors offering innovative products and solutions for your business. If you’re looking for something specific, you’ll find it. You’ll also find friendly, knowledgeable company representatives who can answer any questions you have.

Education: In addition to exploring the exhibit hall, you’ll have the opportunity to learn from experts in the field about the latest pest management research; best practices in the areas of wood-destroying insects, wildlife, bed bugs and general pest control; sales and marketing techniques to help you grow your business; and expanded “thought leader” sessions on key management topics. There are many opportunities available for you to enhance your skills and learn something new.

Networking: PestWorld is the place to make connections and meet new people. Sure, you go to see people you know, but there are so many opportunities to expand your business contacts and meet people you don’t know. You have many opportunities to network with people on the show floor, in educational sessions and at receptions.

Motivation: Attending PestWorld is a great way to recharge your professional batteries and get motivated about your business. There is no better place to meet your fellow PMPs and to find people who are excited about developments in the pest management industry. It’s easy to get locked into a routine as you practice business as usual for most of the year. But at PestWorld, you’ll find yourself charged up and passionate about the industry as you share your views and opinions with people just like yourself.
