This was the highest attended annual conference for the NPMA. Since its inception in 1933, the organization has supported the pest control industry’s efforts to protect public health, food and property. Its staff addresses the technical, governmental, educational, business, and networking needs of its more than 5,500 members, who provide professional pest management services.

“It’s no secret that PestWorld has proven itself once again as the premier pest management event in our industry,” said NPMA CEO Dominique Stumpf. “With packed educational sessions and a sold-out exhibit hall, this year’s event demonstrated the industry’s desire for an event with emphasis on learning and networking.”

The event featured an exhibit hall that showcased products and services geared to pest management professionals (PMPs), a lineup of educational sessions for which PMPs could earn recertification credits, keynote speakers, NPMA committee meetings as well as a reception showcasing NPMA’s committees and a party to mark PestWorld’s last day.

“With the strong participation of PMP’s this year, vendors had a remarkable opportunity to meet in person with thousands of prospective buyers,” Stumpf said. “I am proud that PestWorld can be the platform for educating PMP’s on the latest research and technology to ensure our industry continues to make a positive impact on society by protecting public health and property.”

Next year, PestWorld will take place at the San Diego Convention Center Oct. 15-18 in San Diego, Calif.
