The British Pest Control Association (BPCA) announced on 23 January 2014 the details of its new one-day event to be held in alternate years to PestEx. It is to be called PPC Live 2014.

PPC Live is to include both a trade exhibition and conference. It is to be held on Wednesday 21 May 2014 at Salford City Stadium in Manchester.

BPCA says the event is designed for technicians, surveyors and company owners to help improve their technical knowledge, earn vital CPD points, and keep up-to-date with the latest industry changes and products.

BPCA chief executive, Simon Forrester said: “PPC Live will be our sector”s best one-day event, serving the industry and will include a seminar and practical programme that will be unrivalled by any other event in the UK, bringing the whole sector under one roof to share and learn from each other to make a stronger, safer pest control industry.”

Simon added: “Seminar topics will include the latest on SGAR stewardship, pesticide waste handling, and a panel discussion on what clients want from their pest controllers. Further information about the PPC Live seminar and practical demonstration programme will be released in the coming weeks and months.”

BPCA says that PPC Live 2014 promises to be the second biggest UK pest control exhibition behind its sister show PestEx.

Only time will tell how it fares in comparison to PestTech – the very well established annual, one-day event organised for the last 21 years by the National Pest Technicians Association (NPTA).

Simon commented: “For manufacturers, PPC Live will be the place to launch new products and for servicing companies they will be able to keep-up with the latest industry changes, products and innovations, whilst earning CPD points.”
