NWCOA, NPMA postpone 2021 Wildlife Expo


December 11, 2020



After much consideration, the National Wildlife Control Operators Association (NWCOA) and the National Pest Management Association (NPMA) have postponed the 2021 Wildlife Expo in light of the continuing COVID-19 pandemic. It was originally set to take place Feb. 1-3 in Orlando, Fla.

They jointly released a statement that noted “the health and safety of our members and vendors partners remain a priority to both associations. New travel restrictions, quarantine requirements, and stay-at-home orders continue to be issued across the country, making a national in-person event difficult at this time. We look forward to connecting with wildlife control industry professionals at the Expo and know that we will be back to it soon. We’ll share additional details on our plans for the Wildlife Expo in the coming weeks.”


NWCOA’s mission is to advance the wildlife damage industry. Its vision is to be the source of expertise in resolving human/wildlife conflicts. With the association’s mission and vision defined, its goals are to advocate, collaborate, educate and strengthen.


Since 1933, the NPMA has represented the interests of its members and the structural pest control industry’s commitment to the protection of public health, food and property.

The NPMA has guided its more than 7,000 member companies and the pest control industry through the creation of verifiable training, the changing technologies used by the industry, and public and media relations.

The major reason for the NPMA’s growth and success is that its members have the opportunity to network and share ideas. At each meeting, at each workshop, at each regional conference and national meeting and trade show, members talk to one another and share ideas and expertise, learn about new tools and techniques, and discuss the latest pest issues.

Headquartered in Fairfax, Va., just outside of Washington, D.C., the association today has a professional staff of technical, regulatory, government affairs, education and member services committed to the pest management industry.
