Pest industry out in force for PPC Live 2023

    The UK’s biggest pest control event of 2023, PPC Live, saw huge numbers of visitors when it landed in Harrogate, Yorkshire last week.

    With a showcase of more than 55 exhibitors, and a range of seminars and demos to attend, there was never a dull moment for the crowds of pest professionals at the Yorkshire Event Centre.

    528 visitors came along to the British Pest Control Association’s event on Wednesday 22 March, beating attendance figures from 2020.

    With a showcase of more than 55 exhibitors, and a range of seminars and demos to attend, there was never a dull moment for the crowds of pest professionals at the Yorkshire Event Centre.

    For outdoor demonstrations there was a walk-around with two of BPCA’s technical team, Natalie and John, plus a working at height demo and a talk on bioacoustic bird management. 

    All were well attended, and Simon Whitehead’s talk ‘Old meets new: traditional tools for modern rural pest management’ was a particular hit, with the stands overflowing. 

    During the day the winner of the Best Pest Pic 2023 competition was announced, with Justin M Lisney taking the £500 prize for his photo of a mouse stuck in a car vent.

    On the BPCA stand, visitors were treated to a first glimpse of the new BPCA Registered CPD app. Plus there were lots of donations for BPCA’s 2023 charity of the year, Mind. 

    “The whole BPCA team had a brilliant day, seeing many familiar industry faces as well as lots of new ones. We couldn’t have asked for a more fun, productive day and the feedback has been wonderful.

    Lauren Day, BPCA Events Manager, said:

    “We were also delighted to be back in Harrogate again, after receiving great feedback about the venue at our last PPC Live show in 2020.
    “We can’t thank everyone enough for their support in making this event happen, from exhibitors and sponsors, to venue staff and of course, visitors.

    “We look forward to seeing everyone again at PestEx in 2024!”
