Europest conference dates rescheduled by CEPA

The postponed CEPA Europest conference has been rescheduled for 14 & 15 June.

Due to the unexpected Icelandic volcanic ash clouds and the chaos caused for air travellers the CEPA Europest conference originally due to be held 22 & 23 April had to be postponed.

This event has now been rearranged for 14 &15 June 2010.

It is jointly organised by CEPA (the European Pest Management Industry Association) and the Hungarian Pest Control Association (MaKOSZ).

All registered participants for the original date have already been contacted. The organisers hope very much that their diaries will allow participation on these new dates. If in any doubt, please contact Ildiko Kruppa via email – click here.

Delegates who might have been unable to attend in April are more than welcome to register for this revised date. Please click here to register.

The location for Europest remains the same. It is to be held at the four-star Mercure Budapest Buda hotel. This is situated close to the river Danube and just below the famous Buda castle.

In brief, the programme for Europest falls into two halves. The first begins at lunchtime on 14 June and focuses on the current structure and activity within the pest control industry and explores how the various international associations can work together for mutual benefit. There will be an update on CEPA activities, including the project with the European Committee for Standardisation (CEN) which aims to develop the Rome Protocol and current national standards into a Europe-wide set of standards for the industry.

The second half of the programme on 15 June addresses the technical challenges facing the industry. The latest thinking, techniques and information concerning such international pests as bedbugs and mosquitoes will be discussed. These sessions will be led by a highly qualified and international set of speakers.

The programme concludes with the annual CEPA General Assembly.

The language for the event will be English with simultaneous translation to Hungarian throughout.

On the evening of day one, there will be a cruise and welcome dinner
on-board a boat on the river Danube.

Should delegates wish to stay an extra night, an optional sightseeing tour can be taken, so as to enjoy the sights of this beautiful and historic city and environs.

The registration fee of €380 per delegate. This covers the Europest conference sessions and supporting delegate paperwork, coffee breaks, two lunches, the welcome dinner and single room accommodation at the Mercure Budapest Buda hotel on the night of 14 June.
