PestEX 2007 is nearly here. PestEX 2007 will run for two full-days on 18 and 19 April 2007 at the ExCeL centre in London’s Docklands area.
Entry into the exhibition is free of charge for visitors. All visitors need do is pre-register by clicking onto the dedicated website at www.pestex.org. The web pages are displayed in English, French, German, Spanish and Italian. All those pre-registering will be entered into a prize draw with a chance to win the first prize – five days worth of BPCA training.*
Already established as the leading pest control event in Europe, PestEX 2007 promises even more than just an exhibition. Running throughout the two days will be a series of topical, free of charge seminars covering such issues as waste disposal, pesticide free pest control and the affects of the Biocides Directive. But, perhaps of most interest, will be the truly international gathering of speakers who will address the very tricky topic of bed bug control. In recent years and with recent press coverage, bed bugs have certainly shown themselves to be the rising pest problem – so find out how industry experts tackle bed bugs in their country. Consult the PestEX 2007 website for further details.
To make international visitors feel really welcome, a special lounge area has been reserved specifically for their use. Multi-lingual speakers will be available to assist visitors. Also, there will be international drinks receptions on the evening of the first day (18th April) and at lunchtime on the second day (19th April). Visitors will be asked to confirm, in advance, if they will be attending either or both events.
To date, nearly 60 organisations have stands booked, with exhibitors coming from the UK, mainland Europe including Scandinavia and from the USA. As is to be expected of such a worldwide event, all the leading international pest control companies will be represented. But, in addition, there are several organisations attending for the first time, for example Intelliscan and Codegate, who will have on display a range of electronic devices tailor-made for use within pest control – a vision of the future.
Networking and socialising are all part of attending events such as this. Located within the centre of the exhibition hall is a lounge area with refreshments – an ideal spot to catch up with old colleagues. If a specific meeting room should be required for greater privacy, the organisers can arrange this too. Then, for a bit of fun, delegates are invited to take part in the laser clay pigeon shooting competition – with the chance of winning a top prize
The ExCeL Centre is situated in the heart of the now fashionable London Docklands – an area which will be a key location for the forthcoming 2012 Olympic Games. The purpose-built facilities, which were only opened in 2000, lie in a stunning waterside location with an array of hotels, bars and restaurants on site. Getting to ExCeL is easy – as it can be accessed by the Docklands Light Railway, by car via the nearby motorways, or, for international travellers, via London City airport.
