Awards 

The organizers of the 8th International IPM Symposium – http://ipmcenters.org/ipmsymposium15 – are seeking nominations for the “IPM Achievement Awards,” including individuals, organizations, or companies worthy of recognition for implementation of integrated pest management (IPM)-innovative approaches to reduced-risk pest management-in agricultural, urban and natural areas.

Go to the IPM Achievements Awards page on the website – http://ipmcenters.org/ipmsymposium15/awards.html for more instructions and a link to the online application form. Deadline is December 1, 2014.

The Awards will be presented at a special ceremony during the International IPM Symposium to be held March 23-26, 2015 in Salt Lake City, Utah USA.

Exhibitors and Sponsors

Does your company or organization have products or services that you would like to promote to IPM practitioners and educators?  The symposium is just the place to have an exhibit booth or be a sponsor to contact leaders in the field of IPM; over 600 attended the 2012 Symposium.  Exhibitors and sponsors will be listed prominently on the Symposium’s website, in the program, and on signage during the event.  Exhibit spaces will be adjacent to the concurrent session rooms to provide maximum exposure and traffic.  Breaks and poster sessions will be held in the exhibit area. Cost of an exhibit booth is $750 and includes one symposium registration.
