About the Sunshine Coast

The Sunshine Coast is a great option for a winter getaway or family holiday. With plenty to do and daytime temperatures in the low 20s, it’s an attractive destination, with July being the perfect time to escape the winter weather in the southern states.



Maroochydore is centrally located on the Sunshine Coast making it an ideal base to explore the region. With plenty of accommodation and dining options, bars and live music, there’s plenty to keep everyone happy.


In addition to Maroochydore itself, there are beautiful beaches to the south at Caloundra, Mooloolaba and Alexandra Headlands, and to the north at Coolum Beach, Peregian Beach and Noosa.


Apart from the beaches there are plenty of family activities including the world-class Australia Zoo at Beerwah, Sea Life Aquarium at Mooloolaba, and Maleny Botanic Gardens and Bird World.


With the hinterland and glass house mountains providing hiking, climbing and mountain biking opportunities, there’s plenty for nature lovers and adrenaline junkies alike. Add the Tree Top Challenge and Big Kart Track and there are more than enough thrills to fill a vacation.


With the famous Eumundi markets and galleries in the hinterland villages, there are lots of options for those looking for arts and crafts.

Food & Beer

The Sunshine Coast is famous for its seafood and the hinterland for its pineapples, macadamia nuts, ginger, avocados, and award-winning cheese and yogurts.  As “Australia’s Craft Beer Capital”, there’s more than enough to keep beer enthusiasts interested.

Great Opportunities for Sponsors and Exhibitors

The Termite Professional Conference provides a unique opportunity for suppliers to specifically target pest managers focused on termite management.

Who should be exhibiting?

  • Pre-construction product suppliers
  • Termite control product suppliers
  • Application equipment manufacturers
  • Distributors
  • Insurance companies
  • Business and Report Writing Software developers
  • Training organisations

Why should you be exhibiting?

As we know, termite management is a core part of the business for many pest control companies, providing a significant proportion of business revenue and profits. As such, pest managers are keen to learn about products and services that improve their offerings and grow their business.

The opportunity to be in front of several hundred motivated customers, from around the country, allows suppliers to deliver a focused sales drive. With the termite segment being a high value segment, in many cases it doesn’t take getting many new customers to achieve a profitable return on investment when considering the lifetime value of the customer. Signing up for one of the sponsorship packages with a speaker slot will certainly help get your message across.

The conference will also be recorded, which will allow for continued promotion through the year, both in its entirety and using individual talks (which will allow exposure to non-attendees). This offers great added value for the sponsorship packages with speaker slots.

Of course, simply being seen at the inaugural Termite Professional Conference will support the image of brands wanting to demonstrate leadership in the termite market.

What packages are available?

A range of exhibitor / sponsorship packages are available, from basic trade exhibits through to various levels of sponsorship.

The increasing levels of sponsorship not only provide for increased exposure (including speaking slots), but come with a range of other included benefits (both at the conference and through advertising in Termite Professional magazine) to increase the value of sponsorship packages.

Sponsorship packages are offered on a first come first served basis. Being the first Termite Professional Conference, we are keen to accommodate any ideas exhibitors may have to tailor their package to their needs, so please don’t hesitate to get in touch.

Termite Professional Conference Sponsor and Exhibitor Packages

* Suppliers need to book an exhibitor package in order for their staff to attend the conference. All exhibitor packages come with 2 complimentary full delegate registrations. Exhibitors can purchase addition registrations as required.

Professional Pest Manager is pleased to support the Women in Pest Management (WIPM) association.
