Winter Meeting

 

Winter Meeting,Training and Trade Show

The Meeting will begin on Tuesday, December 5, 2017 and conclude on Thursday, December 7, 2017!

Networking Opportunities

The key to true business networking is the establishment of a mutually beneficial relationship, and that's an incredibly rare event at the standard shake-hands-and-exchange-your-business-card events that are touted as business networking "opportunities". That’s why this benefit is the most difficult to qualify or quantify, but rest assured that this is the benefit you will get the most out of as a member of the Ohio Pest Management Association.

OPMA’s Winter Meeting is designed to draw together suppliers and pest control companies alike, along with bringing in industry legislators and regulators in the spirit of bettering the pest management industry as a whole. Meetings like this are your opportunity to forge new personal and business relationships that could last a lifetime. Don’t let this opportunity go to waste!
