Deadlines approaching – PestWorld early bird registration & abstract offers to ICUP 2014

LinkedIn +

For those of our readers who attend some of the international pest management events – here are two dates you should not miss. Early bird registrations for PestWorld 2013 close on 3 September and offers of abstracts for ICUP should be in by 10 September.

Organised by the National Pest Management Association (NPMA) in the USA, PestWorld is the annual meeting place for members of the international pest management industry. If you have never been, attending at least once is certainly an interesting experience!

International delegates gain a favourable rate, and if you book before 3 September 2013 you get an even better reduced early bird rate. See registration details here.

Details of this year’s technical programme are now available and can be seen here.

Held once every three years, the International Conference on Urban Pests (ICUP) is, once again, returning to Europe and will be held on 20 – 23 July 2014 at the University of Zurich, Switzerland.

This non-profit conference is the leading international forum for sharing information and ideas on the impact, biology and control of pests in the urban environment.
