PestTech in Milton Keynes – our verdict PestTech in Milton Keynes – our verdict
PestTech, the one-day event for pest professionals with a focus on those working at the sharp end, travelled south to the Arena MK, Milton Keynes on 7 November. For the second year running visitors and exhibitors alike had to get used to a new venue. Chatting to attendees it was definitely a case of: ‘You can please some of the people, some of the time, but never all of the people, all of the time.’ So what was our verdict on the day?
 
PestTech talks well attended PestTech talks well attended
Another year, another venue for PestTech! This time the Arena MK in Milton Keynes, the home of the MK Dons and, believed by many to be, the centre of the universe. It is certainly a fine venue with excellent facilities for a seminar programme. The presentations themselves were varied, spanning business, regulatory and practical topics and all were well attended.
