The Bathroom Manufacturers Association (BMA) has announced that it is returning to face-to-face meetings next month, following the lifting of all COVID-19 restrictions. According to the association, giving members the opportunity to get together in person is an important aspect of its business, and a step forward in rebalancing the 'virtual fatigue'.
However, the association has revealed that it will run hybrid events, with both physical and virtual set up, so those who cannot attend in person can still take part. The first meeting will be the MDs' meeting, for full BMA member company principals at 1pm on 15th September, followed by the board meeting at 8.30am on 16th September, to take place in Liverpool.
BMA chief executive, Tom Reynolds, pictured, said: “Our switch to virtual meetings has worked incredibly well during the pandemic, and served as a good replacement during a difficult time. In fact, our webinars and meetings were attended by many more members than previously, with a lot of positive feedback on the value of our digital presence during the COVID crisis. That is why we are continuing with a mix of virtual and face-to-face attendees, to accommodate as many people as possible and ensure everyone feels comfortable and confident.”
