Overview

PestEx is back! That’s right, after an unexpected three-year break (thanks to a famous little virus that’s been going around, you might have heard of it?) PestEx is finally heading to London this year.

BPCA is back at ExCeL on 16 and 17 March for an action-packed two days.

SPOTLIGHT THEATRE

This show puts pest professionals at the heart of the PestEx agenda. Plenty of pest controllers have been invited to present in the Spotlight Theatre. People will showcase their work, sharing case studies about how they dealt with difficult sites, customers and species.

TECHNICAL THEATRE

In the same spirit, the trusty Technical Theatre is chock full of topics that you requested. There are sessions from pest management consultants, doctors and professors from universities sharing their studies and research projects, representatives from associated sectors and some really technical nitty-gritty for those science fans out there!

THE LARGEST ARRAY OF VISITORS

The other half of PestEx is the fantastic exhibition hall, and the 80+ exhibitors have been busy working on new products, organising fun competitions and putting together exclusive offers. Make your way around the hall and take in all that they have to offer because without their support this event wouldn’t be possible!

FANTASTIC PRIZES

On the BPCA stand, they’ve got some fun things too. BPCA is running a PROtect at PestEx reaction game with some great prizes up for grabs, including a PS5 bundle. Some exhibitors have kindly offered prizes too, so if you’re pre-registered be sure to put your reactions to the test.

NETWORK AREAS

The PestEx coffee area will give you a chance to catch up with people you’ve not seen in years, plus finally meet those you’ve only ever seen over Zoom – PestEx is your chance to make those connections.

COVID-19

While we’d hoped that Covid-19 would be a distant memory by now, unfortunately, it's something we’re all continuing to adapt to. BPCA is working with ExCeL, suppliers and exhibitors, to make the show a safe environment for everyone involved.

If you have any concerns, visit the PestEx website (pestex.org/covid-19) or give the BPCA a call on +44 (0) 1332 225 111.
