BedBug Central Presents the 2010 North American Summit

Industry Events

The two-day summit will be held Sep. 21-22, in Chicago.

| April 5, 2010

LAWRENCEVILLW, N.J. —BedBug Central is hosting its first annual North American Bed Bug Summit in Chicago, Ill., as an educational blueprint for all industries affected in the battle against bed bugs.

The two-day summit titled, “BedBug University North American Summit 2010” will be held Sep. 21-22. During this 48-hour period, attendees will learn actionable strategies for bed bug control, legal protection, treatment cost containment, and much more with a level of depth never before provided in a single seminar.

Phillip Cooper, president of BedBug Central, acknowledges that what makes this conference so unique is the breadth of speakers that will offer attendees an unparalleled opportunity to learn from 14 of the nation’s leading entomologist and bed bug specialists alongside the largest gathering of bed bug-industry related vendors.

“This summit really represents access to the best information available on bed bugs to date,” said Cooper. “Because we were able to gather the nation’s leading bed bug experts and vendors under one roof, this summit will provide a sophisticated level of information to a variety of industries that can be lost in smaller or less specific seminars.”

The caliber of speakers at Bed Bug University’s North American Summit 2010 include: Dr. Michael Potter, Dr. Dini Miller, Dr. Changlu Wang and Dr. Stephen Kells, in addition to bed bug legal experts such as Christian Hardigree.

BedBug University’s North American Summit 2010 is designed to speak to industries that are feeling the affects of the bed bug resurgence most acutely. These industries include: university housing, pest management, military housing, shelters and group homes. Through interviews with industry partners and entomologists, Cooper saw an urgent need for a national bed bug summit due to a lack of available information across the hardest hit sectors. 

“We saw a need from a wide swath of industries for in-depth knowledge that they haven’t received from previous symposia,” said Cooper. “Earlier seminars were very well done, but we wanted to create a unique forum for learning that is unlike anything given in the past.”

In addition to the speakers, Cooper has assembled the largest exposition of vendors that deliver bed bug related services. Attendees will experience hands-on demonstrations and compare multiple manufacturers so that they make the most informed decisions about who they select as future service partners.

To provide a greater depth of information, the summit is broken into three hour-long seminars where attendees will receive educational information from entomologists and bed bug experts. Attendees will then view presentations from topic-related vendors and learn how to integrate the acquired knowledge into an actionable bed bug protocol or profitable business model.

Industry professionals are encouraged to register soon. For more information on BedBug University’s North American Summit 2010 visit http://www.nabedbugsummit2010.com.
