Held in the sunny Gold Coast, the FAOPMA Conference 2016 promises to be a valuable event for those in the pest control industry.
When you’re running a business, it is always difficult to justify taking time away, even for learning opportunities. Will the time away result in learnings that can deliver improved services and performance? Basically, will you get a good return on your investment?
Although as with any conference, “the more you put in the more your get out”, the FAOPMA Conference on the Gold Coast is certainly set up to provide great learning opportunities.
AEPMA have highlighted five reasons why the FAOPMA Conference is a must-attend for 2016.
The comprehensive program at this year’s conference provides a wide range of topics, with something for everyone. Leading experts in their field will present on the latest research on specific pests and control techniques, including termites and termite management, rodents, bed bugs and mosquitoes.
On the technical side, other presentations utilise the wealth of knowledge and experience of leading pest managers, who will guide delegates through practical experience and examples in pest management.
For those looking to improve their business management, other presentations will provide valuable information on how to capture, retain and manage clients; marketing in today’s online world; and dealing with some of the more problematic aspects of running a pest management business.
Outstanding trade show
The exhibition halls will be filled with over 40 exhibitors from Australia and overseas, across a range of industries. Whether it be the latest in pest management solutions and products, to options for insurance, training and finance, or perhaps you are interested in the latest technologies for your business – the trade show has it all!
A great networking opportunity
When working in the pest management industry, especially for those that run smaller businesses, it can be difficult to find the time or opportunity to meet and share experiences with fellow pest managers. The conference provides the ideal environment to mix with your peers and gain valuable information about your industry. The learnings gained from such interactions can often prove the most valuable.
Distinctive social events
The conference promises to provide some wonderful opportunities to mix with peers and colleagues and a great chance to catch-up with friends, both old and new – presenting further networking opportunities. The conference will commence with a welcome cocktail reception at Dolphin Beach in Sea World, where guests will be entertained with a live dolphin show. The following evening, guests can kick back and enjoy the delights of a tropical themed gala dinner on South Stradbroke Island – which will include the much-anticipated announcement of the Australian Pest Manager of the Year.
Beautiful sun-filled location
The Gold Coast provides a great opportunity to make sure the batteries are fully charged for the coming pest season. The Gold Coast and Sea World Resort provide the perfect backdrop to visit sun-drenched beaches, world famous theme parks or World Heritage listed rainforests. Accommodation is still available at Sea World Resort and can either be booked online through the AEPMA Conference website or directly through Group Reservations at Sea World.
