While the COVID-19 virus was on the minds of attendees, partners and staff during the 2020 Pest Management Professional (PMP) Growth Summit event, which took place March 4-6, everyone felt lucky to participate before virus containment procedures kicked in nationwide.

The fourth annual event, which was once again held at the Reunion Resort, Kissimmee, Fla., brought together 36 attendees representing 31 companies. In a series of 20-minute scheduled, one-on-one meetings, they met with 13 industry supplier partners. There were plenty of other networking opportunities, too, with the Wednesday night poolside reception and the Thursday afternoon golf scramble and annual barbecue dinner.

The event kicked off on Wednesday afternoon with a series of boardroom presentations by the partners. Bright and early Thursday morning, attendees and partners had the chance to share both questions and insights at breakfast roundtables. Topics included “Secrets to Hiring & Retaining Employees”; “Leveraging Social Media for Your Business”; “Customer Retention, Repeat Business & Referrals”; “Big 5 Pests”; “Streamlined Business Tips”; and “Obstacles & Opportunities.” Breakfast roundtables were held Friday morning too, before the scheduled meetings, so everyone had a chance to sit at a different table — or return for more at the same table, if they preferred.

In future issues, be sure to check out the monthly “PMP Growth Summit Sound Bites” page, which will feature nuggets of useful information gleaned from roundtable discussions, participant videos, hallway chats and more. If your 2020 revenue is projected to be $1 million or more, you may qualify for participation in our 2021 PMP Growth Summit. Learn more and apply online today at PMPGrowthSummit.net.
