The full programme, details of exhibitors and registration information for PestWorld 2023 to be held between 17-20 October 2023 at the Hawaii Convention Center, Honolulu, Hawaii, USA are now available on the PestWorld 2023 website.
Held each year, and organised by the National Pest Management Association (NPMA) in the US, PestWorld is the largest and most international gathering in the professional pest controller’s calendar.
It provides an ideal opportunity for individuals from every facet of the pest management industry from around the world to share their knowledge, hear different perspectives on business trends, learn the latest technical research and form lasting bonds within the industry.
The exhibition is a highlight of the event with nearly 200 exhibitors spread over the exhibition hall. The assembled world-renowned manufacturers and distributors will have on display their latest products, services and technologies for delegates to examine, discuss or just browse.
The event kicks off on Tuesday, October 17, with a traditional Hawaiian welcome and blessing from the welcome host, Blaine Kia. He shares the story of the island of O’ahu with the session closing with a traditional and dramatic fire-knife dance. This is followed by the official opening of the exhibition.
Each of the general sessions on the two following days, Wednesday and Thursday, will be opened by a keynote speaker. On Wednesday, this will be changemaker, best-selling author and thought leader Sebastian Terry and on ThursdayLieutenant Colonel Jason Harris, well-known as a best-selling author, expert thought leader and professional pilot.
After each general session, delegates can choose from a multitude of concurrent technical and educational presentations covering virtually every technical topic and pest likely to be encountered by a professional pest controller. In addition, there are management orientated sessions, including an open forum for chief executives designed to discuss how to buildefficiencies into their business.
The exhibition and concurrent educational sessions continue on Friday, October 20, with the whole event closing with the PestWorld PestFest closing party.
Delegates from over 50 countries traditionally attend PestWorld events. For any international delegate attending for the first time, there is a specific welcome and orientation session on the first day, Tuesday, before events start to swing into action.
The international reception on Wednesday night, once again sponsored by Orkin, is a great place to catch up with all those from overseas.
On Thursday, the Global Pest Management Coalition is holding an open meeting. All international delegates are most welcome. Come along and find out what this group has been working on.
“PestWorld 2023 brings together individuals from every facet of pest management to share tactical knowledge, hear different perspectives on business trends, learn from the latest technical research and form strong relationships,” said Dominique Stumpf, CAE, NPMA’s chief executive.
