DISINFESTANDO | PESTITALY Milan25.06.2019

The Italian Disinfestation Expo-Conference has reached its 6th edition this year and for the first time it was organized in Milan at Mi.Co. – Milano Congressi.

We must acknowledge that currently there are only three major trade fairs for the Pest Management sector in Europe, namely:

  • PestEx in London
  • Parasitec in Paris
  • Disinfestando | Pestitaly in Milan

The event, this year like in its previous editions, has confirmed a steady expansion with an increased number of exhibitors and almost 2000 visitors. Our thanks go to the organizers for the excellent organisation of the event, and our congratulations to our colleagues and competitors who all presented very nice and appealing stands. These investments certainly convey important messages to our sector.

The PCOs have shown an interest in participating not only to the Fair, but also to the workshops and informative sessions organized by the Associations and various Suppliers. This fact confirms that the professionals of the sector are interested in investing in their professional development, to be well-informed and updated on the latest trend.

Particularly appreciated were the sessions held by Chiara Leboffe – Fise Assoambiente, on “Administrative requirements of waste management”, by Giovanni Tapetto on “The management of waste in Pest Control activities: obligations and misunderstandings”, and by Anna Betto, Councilor of the Order of Agronomists and Foresters. Of interest was also the intervention of Pasquale Trematerra, who presented the IOBC Conference – Working Group on “Integrated Protection of Stored Products”, which is going to take place in Pisa on 4-6 September. The presentation of the S.I.T. pilot project in mosquito control given by Romeo Bellini of the Centro Agricoltura Ambiente Crevalcore was engaging. The session dedicated to urban greenery and the use of pesticides organised by Dr. Francesco Fiorente and Dr. Francesco Vidotto from the University of Turin pushed itself to the limits of usual Pest Management services.

Among the many topics treated in the various sessions there was safety at work, with the intervention of ASSOSISTEMA officials, food standards with Serena Venturi I.F.S. and Maria Coladangelo NSF, and procurement legislation with Piero Fidanza and Luca Tosto.

Worth of mention were also the presentations by Capizzi, Ugo Gianchecchi and Dino Scaravelli on the thorny issue of rodent control and the use of anticoagulant products, the significant speech given by Toni D’Andrea of ​​AFIDAMP, and the presentation of FISE-ASSOAMBIENTE by Donatello Miccoli.

On our part, many PCOs and Foreign Distributors spent some of their time visiting our stand and getting to know our new solutions, many dedicated to the Professional / IPM sector, which we are going to present over the coming months. However, all our novel solutions follow the Newpharm “tradition”, that is to offer field-tested products and equipment in order to put on the market solutions and projects that are proved to be effective.

It is our intention to focus more and more on the IPM/Professional division, both in Italy and abroad, by taking part to the upcoming International events, such as the 7th edition of Disinfestando |Pestitaly in 2021.

In the coming months you will see a real evolution of our catalogue and you will have the chance to get to know – and we hope to appreciate – our new IPM/Professional Technical-Commercial network. It will be formed by “Pest Control Coaches”, who are skilled professionals of the sector ready to provide you with commercial information, but also answers your daily technical questions.

We would like to take this opportunity to thank all those who came to visit us at Disinfestando|Pestitaly and who shared with us their enthusiasm to help us to grow, your successes are our successes!
