There are many new features at the IPM Symposium in 2011. The list includes a new format and new networking opportunities, supported by a new energy. And, of course, it all takes place in the new year.

In the past, the IPM Symposium was held at various times in a number of locales. This year, it’s a one-time and one-place event only, scheduled for Jan. 10 at the Toronto Congress Centre in the Cohen Ballroom.

It’s an impressive list of very topical speakers this year. People such as Cam Wilson, chief technical officer of Neudorff North America, the company behind last year’s new pesticide hopeful, Fiesta. Also on the podium are Ministry of Environment officials, as well as Dr. Michael Brownridge, Vineland Research and Innovation Centre, Pam Charbonneau, OMAFRA, Roger Funk, The Davey Tree Expert, and David Shetlar, professor of Urban Landscape Entomology at Ohio State University, who will speak about bees and bugs.

For the first time in the history of the IPM Symposium, lunch and a reception are included in the program. Landscape Ontario’s Integrated Pest Management Symposium has been a unique and respected event since 1965.
