Covid-19 safety concerns see BAMA Innovation Day cancelled

The British Aerosol Manufacturers’ Association (BAMA) annual Innovation Day has been cancelled, the association confirmed today, 29 April.

BAMA hopes to be able to bring you the presentations which were planned via a series of Innovation Webinars during the coming months.  Invitations will be sent out to BAMA Members after discussion with those who were due to present at the event in July.

Patrick Heskins, chief executive of BAMA, said: “It is with great regret that the decision has been taken to cancel this year’s Innovation day and I know many regular delegates as well as speakers from across the industry will be disappointed.

“BAMA remains indebted to all those who had prepared to participate as well as to the Royal Armouries for working so positively with us to help organise an alternative date which unfortunately cannot now go ahead. We take the health and safety of our members and delegates extremely seriously, and, after discussions with the Royal Armouries, we have agreed that to have suitable social distancing measure in place, whilst still giving both delegates and presenters the chance to meet and interact was not possible.  It is in this context that we have taken the decision to cancel this year’s event.

“We will be returning to the Royal Armouries on Wednesday 21st April 2021 and I have every confidence that next year’s event will continue to build on the success of previous years. I look forward to welcoming the industry’s most creative manufacturers and influential thought leaders once again.”

Details of the Innovation webinar will be issued in the coming weeks.

If you would like to register your interest in the webinars or would like to participate in next year’s Innovation Day, please contact Sally Tilbury at sallytilbury@bama.co.uk, or call 020 7828 5111.
