NEPTUNE, N.J., June 12, 2014 -- Marathon Data Systems (www.marathondata.com), which provides a cloud-based business management platform for companies with a mobile workforce, and the Florida Pest Management Association (FPMA) announced a new 2015 conference combining the Marathon PestPac User Conference and the FPMA Pest and Lawn Care Expo. The new event will provide attendees with the most comprehensive event in the pest control industry while reducing travel and expenses.
"The FPMA is one of the most innovative and largest regional associations in the industry. The heavy overlap in our respective user bases and our industry leadership positions made the decision to combine our events a simple one," said Chris Sullens, President and CEO of Marathon Data Systems. "By creating a new, more robust event, we're giving PestPac users, FPMA members, attendees and sponsors the most bang for their buck. No other pest control industry conference can offer as much in a single location as we will with The Marathon PestPac User Conference and FPMA Pest and Lawn Care Expo."
While the FPMA Pest and Lawn Care Expo and Marathon PestPac User Conference each provided significant value to their respective attendees and sponsors, combining them removed the need for separate trips and separate expenses for the large number of attendees who traveled to both. As both events traditionally focused on networking and the sharing of industry best practices, combining them removed overlap while still providing industry-specific training and certification from FPMA, and PestPac user training designed to get the most out of Marathon's industry-leading technology. Attendees now receive the best of both conferences in one place at one time.
"The new partnership with Marathon Data Systems, the leading provider of software to the pest control industry, will bring pest professionals from across the country to the Sunshine State to learn about new products and technologies, network with colleagues, earn CEUs, and hear about current trends and issues to make their businesses more profitable and efficient," said Allen Fugler, FPMA Executive Vice President. "As FPMA expands its state CEU certifications total, partnering with fellow pest control industry leaders Marathon Data Systems ensures that conference attendees have access to best and most current information critical to their business' success. Both organizations have a long history of innovation and this event is a great example of how we're bringing that innovation to life."
The Marathon PestPac User Conference and FPMA Pest and Lawn Care Expo will be held at the Embassy Suites in Kissimmee, Florida from January 19-23, 2015.
