The search is on to find the product that Pest readers will crown the best new product when they vote this autumn. Yes, nominations for the Pest Best product Award 2018 are now being accepted. So what’s impressed you so far?
It’s time to start thinking about which products you want to nominate for the Pest Best Product Award 2018.
Products launched between 1 January 2017 and 31 August 2018 are eligible and you can nominate as many products as you want so there’s no need to wait. Get your nominations in now and, if something better comes along later in the year, you can simply nominate that as well.
What we are looking for is the product that you feel has made the most improvement to your working life and/or working practices as a pest professional.
A quick skim of the new products featured in the last six issues of Pest shows that there are already plenty of products to choose from:
To name but three.
For the 2018 award, any product introduced commercially during the qualifying period of 1 January 2017 up to 31 August 2018, can be put forward, with one exception. Products which achieved a first, second or third place in last year’s award cannot be nominated for a second time. So that means you cannot nominate Rotech Ranger Dual Trap from 1env Solutions, nor Ratwall from Edialux, nor Cimetrol Super from PelGar International - the winners in the 2017 awards.
Pest readers are in the driving seat. You nominate the products. We then produce a shortlist and invite you to vote for the product you feel is the most innovative. The winners will be announced at PestTech in November and will be featured in the December edition of Pest magazine.
You can nominate products via our online PDF form, or by using the printed nomination form in Pest 55: February & March 2018 edition of Pest magazine. Alternatively you can email the editor. Please type Best Product Award in the subject line and be sure to include:
Nominations will close at midnight on 31 August 2018. The timetable is:
Any product launched between 1 January 2017 and 31 August 2018 can be nominated.
