The inaugural Europest event, organised by CEPA (the European Pest Management Industry Association) will be held on 1 - 3 April 2008 at the Holiday Inn West in Rome, Italy.
It is planned that Europest will become an annual addition to the European pest control calendar. This event aims to raise standards within the industry by providing a forum for information exchange, business networking plus the sharing of skills and knowledge. As Robert Stuyt, CEPA President, explains: “The theme we have selected for Europest is ‘Unifying and leading our industry’ which I feel neatly sums-up the overall objective of the event – to position CEPA as the unified European industry leader aiming, via our continued commitment, to add value to the industry.
Europest begins with a welcome reception on the evening of Tuesday 1 April. Following this will be two full days of presentations and delegate discussion led by respected industry leaders from across Europe and beyond who will address topics as wide ranging as market development, harnessing the power of the media, raising the levels of professionalism and training, women in pest control and technical innovation. On the mid-evening of Europest there will be a gala dinner accompanied by an event to celebrate industry achievements.
Delegates are also invited to attend the CEPA General Assembly on Friday 4 April which will finish at lunchtime.
Registration, as with the successful European Pest Management Day, is through the CEPA website at www.cepa-europe.org
