The coundown is now on for the BMA Conference: Sustainability for the Sector, which is set to bring together the leaders of the bathroom manufacturing industry for two days of inspiring talks, collaboration and networking, focussed on the environmental agenda. After a two-year absence, the conference’s return is an eagerly anticipated event, which will see the sector converge at Carden Park Golf Resort near Chester, on 6th and 7th June. Water system products testing and certification body, NSF, is supporting the event as Bronze Sponsor.
The line-up of keynote speakers at the conference includes Prof Lewis Dartnell, a research scientist, presenter and author who holds the Professorship in Science Communication at the University of Westminster, and has won several awards for his science writing and outreach work and regularly freelances for newspapers and magazine articles.
Most of the presentations during the conference will focus on the environment whether that’s climate change itself, adaptation, or the mental resilience to cope with the challenges we face. New for this year’s conference is the ‘Big Debate’, which will discuss sustainable channels to market for bathroom manufacturers, traditional vs ‘click and collect’.
This hot-topic discussion will see five guest panellists share their views on how the industry is changing. The panellists are: Mike Rigby, MD at MRA Research; John Newcomb, chief executive of the Builders Merchants Federation; Dave Ruston from Eureka Research; and Jane Blakeborough, research director at Trend-Monitor.
BMA chief executive, Tom Reynolds, said: “The line-up for this year’s conference, in terms of sponsors, speakers and panellists, is generating a lot of interest. The packed agenda has a clear central theme, sustainability, which is crucial to the future of our sector. I would urge anyone who has not yet booked to snap up the last couple of tickets before it is too late.”
