The Federation of Asian and Oceania Pest Managers’ Association – was founded by a number of industry leaders from within the Asia region in 1987 with the common goal of advancing the pest management industry throughout the region.

The important first meeting was held in Tokyo, Japan, in November 1988 and FAOPMA was officially formed with the support of 8 founding member countries.

Over the years, FAOPMA has had the privilege of being associated with many great conferences throughout the region, and has facilitated through the FAOPMA ‘spirit’, many great and lasting friendships amongst industry leaders and supporters from both within the region and globally. These friendships, based on common interest of the pest management industry, have without question, lead to improvement and strengthening of the pest management industry, not just within the FAOPMA region, but globally.
