NPMA Offers Lodging Options for Sold-Out Omni Resort, site of January Bed Bug Forum

Industry Events

| December 22, 2010

FAIRFAX, VA. — Denver’s Omni Interlocken Resort, the site of NPMA’s National Bed Bug Forum to be held Jan. 5-7, has reached sell-out capacity and has created a waiting list. Additionally, the NPMA is offering alternative accommodation options for the popular event.

The National Pest Management’s new National Bed Bug Forum, scheduled for Jan. 5-7, will take place at the Omni Interlocken Resort in Denver, Colo. The conference is designed to provide PMPs with the information they need from legal, technical, business, and customer-oriented perspectives. NPMA says the conference moves beyond bed bug basics to focus on business management solutions.

“While some professionals are playing the guessing game when it comes to bed bugs, there are many who have successfully navigated the challenges presented,” observed NPMA executive vice president Rob Lederer. “When it comes to managing your bed bug business, it’s too important to guess at answers when solutions are available.”

Identified as one of the most challenging pests in the industry, bed bugs have aggressively resurged across the globe. With the substantial media coverage regarding bed bugs, public awareness has increased dramatically. “The National Bed Bug Forum is a holistic approach to educating pest management professionals about bed bugs — from treatment methods to successful business models to navigating the media,” continued Lederer. “Attendees will leave the conference with a comprehensive understanding of the bed bug pandemic and how they can develop a strategic response.”

Also featured at this event is the association’s new House of Learning, a display providing demonstrations of new control technologies designed for challenging environments. Demonstrations will include heat, steam, cold, treatment ergonomics and methods, monitoring practices, UVA inspection, and canine inspection, the association said.
