The industry is gearing up for the 2017 Rapid Solutions Conference.
The Rapid Solutions Conference is one of the largest conferences of its type in the Asia Pacific region, offering pest managers, building inspectors and supplier companies an exceptional opportunity to engage with each other.
This year’s conference will be held on Friday 11th and Saturday 12th August at the Royal Pines Resort on the Gold Coast.
The conference is a great opportunity for pest managers to learn about what’s new and happening in their industry, and to network with their peers.
More than 540 business owners, technicians, support staff, sponsors and exhibitors attended to make the last conference (held in 2015) a great success.
“It’s great to see more and more business decision makers finding value in attending this professional industry conference to network and gain exposure to the latest product innovations,” said Chris Murphy, marketing manager for Rapid Solutions.
“The 2017 conference is expected to be bigger and better than ever, so we have decided to move it to the Royal Pines Resort. The new venue will enable us to provide a fresher conference with better facilities. In addition to that, all social activities will be located on site.”
The information sessions will be divided into multiple streams. This year there will be four presentation streams on the Friday and three on the Saturday.
“We are very excited about the quality of presenters,” added Mr Murphy.
“Presentations will be educational, practical, and highly relevant. The type of information provided will be aimed at helping pest management businesses to become more productive and profitable.
“The conference program will be comprehensive and full of valuable information. Content will be relevant to all attendees, whether they are owners, office managers or technicians.”
There are some great social activities and entertainment being organised for the conference.
“On the Thursday evening there will be a welcome reception sponsored by Syngenta. The welcome reception always provides a great social start to the conference, with the opportunity for delegates to mingle informally, renew old acquaintances and make new friends.
“The AEPMA Pest Manager of the Year award will be announced at the Gala Dinner on the Friday evening. Sponsored by BASF, this signature event includes dinner, drinks and professional entertainment. In 2015 this was one of the highlight events, with over 350 people attending in a relaxed, fun environment.
“On the Saturday night, there are a range of social activities organised, all sponsored by FMC. Segway races, laser skeet shooting and bumper balls are just some of the activities available. If you don’t want to participate, you can watch from the bar. it should be great fun!”
“For golfers there is a great golf course on site. The Royal Pines course has been recently redesigned and hosts the Australian PGA Championships. For keen golfers this is a great opportunity to play a round on a true championship course.”
