The 2016 FAOPMA conference looks set to be the highlight of the Australian pest industry calendar this year.

The FAOPMA conference, hosted by AEPMA and held from 14-16 September 2016 at the Sea World Resort and Conference Centre on the Gold Coast, is set to be a highlight pest management event for 2016.

The theme for the conference is ‘Solving Pest Problems’, bringing together pest managers, industry specialists and experts, to work towards solving real life pest problems.

Paul Hanna, one of Australia’s leading motivational speakers on developing potential in individuals and organisations, will be presenting the keynote presentation at the conference.

Other highlights include focussed presentations on termites and termite control, including high profile experts as Dr Charunee Vongkaluang from Thailand, Dr Theo Evans and Dr Don Ewart. With the emerging threat of the Zika Virus, Dr Stephen Doggett will present on the latest in mosquitoes and mosquito-borne threats.

This year’s conference will also include a panel session of experts, bringing audience members up to date on the latest developments in legislation changes to building codes and termite management in pre-construction, and how this affects them. To anyone operating in the termite segment, this is a must attend session!

In addition, there will be 40 or more exhibitors, showing delegates the latest in products and technologies. AEPMA would like to take this opportunity to the major conference sponsors – BASF, Globe, Pelgar, Ensystex, Sherwood Chemicals and Syngenta.

The conference program promises to bring some exciting new experiences including; the special presentation working breakfasts on each morning, the welcome cocktail reception with live dolphin show and a tropical themed gala dinner at McLaren’s Landing on South Stradbroke Island (main picture, above) for the much anticipated announcement of the Australian Pest Manager of the Year.
