2017 will mark the 75th anniversary of the Association. BPCA will be celebrating this occasion with a special dinner held on the evening of Wednesday 22 March, after day one of PestEx 2017.
Taking place at the East Wintergardens, the largely informal dinner will give attendees the chance to celebrate the last 75 years of BPCA, as well as reflect on challenges facing the sector now and in the future. The 75th anniversary dinner will bring together the pest control sector's key stakeholders to champion the activities of the association, its membership and supporters in a fun and exciting environment.
BPCA President Paul Rodman said,
"BPCA has come a long way since 1942, but we still hold the same virtues today in maintenance and preservation as we did then."
The dinner will be a chance for a number of people involved within the industry to come together in an enjoyable atmosphere, and perhaps talk about what things might be like in the next 75 years.
The celebratory 75th anniversary dinner has a maximum capacity of 200 guests, based on round tables of ten. After a semi-formal dinner (including awards), the venue also benefits from being able to facilitate further networking with casino tables, bars and lounges all open to dinner attendees to mark the memorable occasion.
Members and Supporters can book their place at the celebratory dinner by completing a booking form and sending to firstname.lastname@example.org.
The dinner will incorporate the inaugural British Pest Management Awards (BPMAs) which aims to bring the whole sector together to celebrate the achievements and professionalism of the wider pest control community.
