Professional Pest Controller Magazine Issue 90

28 February 2018

Professional pest control is getting together!

The stage is set for the most important pest management event of 2018. Held on Wednesday 14 March 2018 at the Three Counties Showground, Malvern, Worcestershire – PPC Live should have a firm place in your diary.

This year, PPC Live is all about getting the industry together. Whether you're a technician, business owner, a specialist, support staff or from an associated sector – there’s something at PPC live for you.

Seminars not to be missed

Seminars not to be missed

Whether you’re a business owner or a tech-savvy technician, you won’t want to miss Savvas Othon talking about how technology will change the role of a technician forever. You might also be interested in seeing how the new apprenticeship scheme could help shape the future of your business (and the sector). Check out Karen and Martin’s apprenticeship scheme launch party/seminar.

BPCA’s own Marketing Manager, Ben Massey will be giving a seminar on marketing for smaller companies. If you’re looking at adding some tricks and tips to get those leads trickling in, make sure you’re about for the first seminar session of the day.

Urban Wildlife will be telling you how to stay on the right side of the law when working around Britain’s wildlife. A little later in the day, Matthew Davies will be talking about the emerging problem of managing mosquitoes in the UK.

Make sure you’re still around until 14.45 – Clive’s talk on pesticide resistance is arguably the unofficial keynote of PPC Live. He’s also suggested there might be a prize up for grabs (although we have no idea what it is or how you’ll win it.)


Collect up to six CPD points towards your yearly target of 20. You get two for attending PPC Live and one point for each seminar you attend (four maximum).
