AH&LA Co-hosts National Bed Bug Symposiums
Association Supports Two Events to Educate Hoteliers on Eradicating Bed Bugs
This Symposium is a proactive next step in helping to address concerns hoteliers and property/maintenance managers have expressed over the resurgence of bed bugs. It will serve to provide necessary education regarding these elusive pests and offer critical advice and resources on how to properly eradicate bed bug infestations. From identifying bed bugs and inspection techniques to public affairs and legal ramifications, the Symposium will provide tips— both preventative and corrective— to help attendees make informed decisions while protecting their customers and establishments.
Beyond the educational component of the Symposium, this event will also feature a Marketplace, which will offer attendees the opportunity to learn more about the products and services available to prevent and eradicate infestations.
Due of the sensitivity of this issue, attendees will also be provided opportunities to ask questions of the expert instructors anonymously and meet with trained professionals to address site-specific questions in a confidential fashion.
Hoteliers, property managers and owners, and anyone working with accommodations for the general public are urged to attend. The two symposiums are being held in cooperation with the National Pest Management Association (NPMA), Association of Structural Pest Control Regulatory Officials, National Apartment Association, New Jersey Apartment Association, New Jersey Hotel & Lodging Association, and Washington State Hotel & Lodging Association.
