PestEx 2009 will once again be held at Excel in London, UK on 22 & 23 April 2009. Exhibitors can now book their stands and full details can be found on the website at www.pestex.org.
Following the success of PestEx 2007 with exhibitors and visitors alike, PestEx 2009, organised by the British Pest Control Association (BPCA), is returning to ExCel. Situated in the heart of the fashionable London docklands area, ExCel is to be a key location for the forthcoming 2012 Olympic Games. The purpose-built facilities which were 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.
The layout of the exhibition is designed to accommodate all types of exhibitor, as the stand sizes consist of a mixture of large and small units. A lounge area, which includes tables and chairs, is also featured – this provides a real focal point and includes the BPCA stand. The area will be WiFi enabled so exhibitors and visitors can catch-up on their emails and hold small, informal meetings or just for talking to colleagues over a cup of coffee.
New for PestEx 2009 is an area of the exhibition hall to be set aside as a practical demonstration area. The message here is practicality. Practical demonstrations will be available and delegates will be invited to try for themselves some of the latest equipment. As an added benefit, proficiency certificates will be given to all those who satisfy a level of competency.
In the late afternoon of the first day – Wednesday 22 April – BPCA will hold its Annual General meeting. This is to be followed by a sociable networking event – which proved so popular in 2007 – as well as the presentation of the BPCA awards.
