Hotel Managers to Tackle Bed Bug Concerns at North American Bed Bug Summit

The BedBug University: North American Summit will Provide Hotel Management Teams with an
Actionable Blueprint for Bed Bug Cost Containment, Prevention Treatment and Legal Protections

Lawrenceville, N.J. (July, 2012)—Bed bug infestations remain a critical issue for hotel operators and managers in terms of treatment costs, liability exposure, and reputation damage. BedBug Central, a leading educational resource for bed bug services, will provide the hospitality sector with comprehensive information on effective bed bug management at the third annual North American Bed Bug Summit.

The two-day conference, “BedBug University: North American Summit 2012” will be held Sept. 6-7 at the Red Rock Casino and Spa in Las Vegas, NV. Attendees will hear from 23 of the foremost bed bug experts in world on actionable strategies for legal protection, bed bug control, staff education, treatment cost reduction, and much more.
According to Jeffrey White, Technical Director for BedBug Central, this year’s summit is expanded to provide the hospitality sector with an international perspective on bed bug management. Expertise will be provided by companies like AntiCimex, which has more than 70 years of experience treating bed bugs in a cost effective and efficient manner.
“Our work with the hospitality sector shows that this industry requires the latest information about bed bugs to best protect their brand,” said White. “This summit fulfills that need by exploring new treatment strategies, reviewing the latest research, and presenting expert perspectives that will help save properties valuable time and resources.”
In addition to hearing from leading bed bug authorities such as Dr. Michael Potter, Dr. Dini Miller, and Richard Cooper, the summit will continue its popular EXPOcentral, one of the largest expositions of bed bug related vendors and services. This forum allows attendees to make informed decisions about who to select as future service partners by viewing hands-on demonstrations from 75 exhibitors and comparing multiple manufacturers in one setting.
The summit will also feature “Interactive Stakeholder Discussions.” This event allows attendees in specific industries to speak directly with experts and each other to better exchange information, ask questions, and address key considerations. Experts in sectors such as pest management, legal services and governmental regulations and others will be present at the summit.

To increase interaction and networking in a casual setting, the summit will continue its wildly popular and free premier “Beer Tasting Reception” in EXPOcentral and “Night Out with the Experts” event at the Cabo Mexican Restaurant.
