Barcelona forum has wow factor Barcelona forum has wow factor
The fourth Barcelona Pest Control Innovation Forum took place 1-2 April 2019. The event is held every two years and for the first time Pest went along to find out more. We were impressed.

PestEx 2019 employed the now tried and tested format of two seminar programmes running in parallel, one dedicated to technical topics, the other to business subjects.

It was a very full house for the rodent control session held on Thursday 7 March, day two of Disinfestando 2019 in Milan.
