Andy’s New York Pest Expo Introduction

Since launching in 2003, The New York Pest Expo has become one of the most significant events in pest management. Each edition continues to draw large numbers of attendees and exhibitors and serves as a showcase for some of the most notable speakers in our industry. The Expo is a gathering place for leading professionals enjoying a full day of food, gifts, prizes, exhibits, training and special offers. The Expo continues to thrive because it is always fresh and energized – a true celebration among friends!


Sadly, the events of 2020 will not allow us to meet in person this year. Instead, we have created an online Expo page which will run for the entire month of November with the theme “We Are Essential.” You’ll find an Exhibitor Showcase with instructional videos by major manufacturers; All-Star Testimonials with messages from notable figures; Upcoming Events where applicators can register for live, in-house recertification programs; and the Blowouts section breaks down the major promos, discounts and special offers available at our Online Store and Showroom.
Make sure you are included in our email list so you don’t miss out on timely notifications. Fully certified Applicators – please register at our Online Store to access exclusive items and insider pricing.


We are already making plans for the next Expo. Until then, be safe, stay strong and “See You Live in 2021!”
