While PestEx has left a hole in the calendar, PestExtra is shaping up to be a pretty good filler until the industry can get together again safely.
Taking place next week, from Tuesday, March 16 to Thursday, March 18, the British Pest Control Association (BPCA) has done its best to make sure PestExtra has the familiar vibe you are used to from PestEx.
Pest Extra can be accessed on smart phones, laptops, tablets and desktop computers.
More than 40 exhibitors will show off their latest products and offers; you’ll be able to visit the stands, have a chat or video chat with members of staff on the stands and have a look around at what they have to offer.
PestExtra will have five theatres running across three days, with the bonus of an on-demand area so you can catch up if you miss anything.
The BPCA is also giving you the chance to get involved with some hot topics by joining its roundtable sessions:
- What makes a professional, a professional?;
- Best Practice Documentation;
- Professional Standards and Accreditations;
- Dealing with customer complaints; and
- Future of Insecticides.
CPD points galore
There are up to 10 structured CPD points available over the three days. PestExtra keeps track of what you’ve done such as the stands you’ve visited, the questions you’ve answered, the seminars you’ve watched and the network events you’ve taken part in.
At the end of your visit, your activity will be converted to CPD points (one point per hour of CPD activity), and you’ll automatically have the appropriate amount of CPD points added to your BPCA Registered or BASIS PROMPT account.
