Our staff were kept busy with their scanners throughout the day, logging the points for a total of PROMPT register members, who each picked up two points simply for attending.

They were then able to add to their tallies by visiting the various seminars through the day, each of which enabled attendees to collect more points – up to a maximum of six - as well as gain valuable insights and knowledge to help them in their work.

In total, 268 people visited our stand to log their points, compared to 195 at the last show, in 2016, while we had a healthy number of applications too.

Among the seminars generating the highest numbers of CPD points was the Action vs Impacts seminar and a talk on marketing by Ben Massey, marketing and communications manager for the BPCA.

Ninety-seven people, meanwhile, picked up a CPD point by attending an outdoor demonstration of air rifles.

Stephen Jacob, Chief Executive of BASIS PROMPT, said: “Not only was PPC Live a wonderful opportunity for everyone in the industry to get together to learn and discuss the latest news and updates, it was an easy way for members to gather CPD points.

“Our data showed that more people took the opportunity to do so than ever before, which is a reflection of the numbers of people who attended the event and are now members of our register.

“It’s a wonderful endorsement not only of the growing reputation of the PROMPT register but also the growing understanding of how regular training and education are vital for operators working in the industry.”
