What can I learn at PPC Live?

Outdoor demonstrations
Back by popular demand! We’ll be getting outside (and not just to take in the beautiful countryside). We’ll be hosting some practical pest management demonstrations. We’ve teamed up with some great speakers who know their topics through-and-through, and are happy to share their expertise with visitors.

Indoor seminars
Our 100-seat silent indoor seminar theatre employs headphones so you won’t miss a single word of the presenters. Get there early to make sure you get a good seat!

Indoor demonstrations
We want to give you the chance to see new ideas and get some hands-on experience while you’re at the show. PPC Live is all about how things work and giving you the tools to help you in the field.

With 6+ CPD points per person up for grabs, why not bring your whole team? We’ll even provide the bacon sandwiches and coffees if you pre-register.

If you’re on BPCA Registered you can log CPD points for anything you learn on your way around the exhibitor hall! 1 learning hour =1 CPD point.

PPC Live pre-show checklist

Register today
Beat the queues for admission by pre-registering online. It takes less than two minutes and you’ll get a free breakfast roll and hot drink on arrival! 


Plus 1...and then some
Make a day of it and invite some pestie pals. If you’re the boss, schedule it as a team building session and bring the whole gang! It adds value to your business in many ways.

Check out the local area
If you’re travelling far, it’s worth finding a hotel (there are plenty) and spending some time in beautiful Harrogate. Known for its fabulous gardens, relaxing spas, and a great bar and restaurant scene, why not take advantage while you’re here?

Tell the world
Going to events like this helps show your clients that you’re more than just a “rat catcher”: you’re serious about your profession. Do a social media update, a news item on your website or even pop it on your ‘out-of-office’. And while you’re doing that…

Time to strategise
The full agenda and exhibitors floor plan are out now so make good use of them. With 50+ exhibitors, a discussion area, seminars, and both indoor and outdoor demonstrations, you may need to strategise! Highlight any presentations or exhibitors you really want to visit. 

Don’t forget to pack your business cards!
Okay, I’ll admit, I do this all the time (luckily for me our events manager always brings spares, thanks Lauren!). But events are great for making connections, so have a pocket full of business cards ready to hand out. You never know where the right conversation might lead!
