The future of the industry was a focus for the 500 people who attended Rapid Solutions EduCon at RACV Royal Pines on the Gold Coast 8 to 11 August 2019.
With the support of AEPMA, BASF, Syngenta, GreenZone, PestIT, Weepa, Morray and Agnew, Gilchrest Connell, FMC, Pest Register, Bayer, Sherwood Chemicals and IQumulate, EduCON 2019 provided an excellent opportunity for delegates and exhibitors to look ahead.
This year, Rapid Solutions developed a program in partnership with sponsors, speakers and exhibitors to cover areas that would help pest managers and building inspectors prepare for the future. Keynote speaker, futurist Craig Rispin, kicked off this theme which was then followed by 32 sessions focussing on technical advice and information to help grow and support business.
Importantly, events like this are as much about opportunities for delegates and suppliers to meet and create opportunities for business. We received plenty of very positive feedback from delegates and exhibitors. Many of the exhibitors and speakers used the opportunity to promote and speak about innovations in products for the industry, but this year we also included a range of business service experts and services focussed on adding value to business.
This year the team at AEPMA used the conference to announce the winners of the Pest Manager of the Year Awards. At the gala dinner in partnership with BASF, AEPMA announced category winners with Dawson's Australia taking out the major award. On the night PWAPm also announced the winner of the inaugural women in pest award. Congratulations to Kylie Enwright from CPR Pest Management in Singleton.
Events like these don’t just happen, and we are incredibly grateful to the sponsors, more than 35 business that exhibited and hundreds of delegates. Many travelled long distances to attend and we are most grateful to everyone who made EduCON 2019 a success.
Some of the photos and videos taken at the event will be posted to Facebook.
We are excited to officially launch Rapid Solutions’ bi-annual conference, EduCON.
