BPCA hails best ever PestEx

The British Pest Control Association (BPCA)’s exhibition and conference, PestEx 2019, was their most successful show to date.

Figures revealed by the BPCA report a record 11% increase in attendance figures compared to the last PestEx in 2017.

Part of this success comes from representatives from cleaning and hygiene organisations visiting the biennial event, thanks to The Cleaning Show 2019, which also took place at ExCeL at the same time.

The unique requirements of the cleaning and hygiene industry were well-represented, with guest speakers, displays and technical insight tailored for the audience.

Ian Andrew, BPCA Chief Executive, said: “PestEx is a commitment to our members’ continuing professional development. It’s vital that the cleaning and hygiene industry is protected professionally when it comes to pest management, and the event showed just how far our work has evolved, and continues to evolve, in terms of innovation, technology and best practice to help protect public health.

“Without effective pest control, public health and safety, the environment and corporate reputation can all be affected. It was encouraging to see the great steps being taken by cleaning organisations and our members to ensure the right outcomes are achieved.”

The British Pest Management Awards (BPMAs) were held during the show to celebrate the outstanding work across the pest management sector in protecting public health.
