Industry Events

FAIRFAX, Va.– With the slow economy, pest management companies are looking at ways to add-on services to boost their sales and expand their businesses.  In response, the National Pest Management Association (NPMA) and the National Wildlife Control Operators Association (NWCOA) have partnered to deliver the 2012 Wildlife Expo being held February 9-11 at the Omni Hotel at CNN Center in Atlanta, Ga.

This in-depth educational program will focus on providing both technical and business-related information to those who are involved in, or are considering offering, wildlife and nuisance bird management -- one of the fastest growing sectors of the pest management industry. 

In conjunction with the Wildlife Expo, NWCOA is offering Certified Professional Training Courses for technicians.  This unique opportunity is only available at the Wildlife Expo and is normally only offered exclusively to NWCOA members.
