BMA Conference speaker reveal    

The latest Bathroom Manufacturers Association 2022 Conference speaker to be announced is a design scientist and systems theorist with world-changing ideas.

BMA is delighted to announce Melissa Sterry, an internationally recognised authority on science and technology, as the second headline speaker at the 2022 BMA Conference, in Carden Park, June 6 and 7.

Her career has been spent working with leading-edge ideas, individuals, and institutions worldwide.

A recipient of several national and international innovation, creativity and enterprise awards, including the Mensa Education and Research Foundation International Award for enhancing intelligence that benefits society, Melissa is listed in the ‘Libertine 100’ women.

She said: “It’s an honour to be invited to join the BMA and its members for this year’s conference.

“Sustainable innovation is critical for the home, and no less so than in the bathroom. From water saving and recycling, to circular design of materials and fixtures, there’s so many steps we can take when making bathroom design, production, and installation central to combatting the many and inter-connected environmental crises we’re facing.

“I’ll be presenting state-of-the-science tech, engineering, and design concepts, trends, and case studies, together with emerging and near-future possibilities, and challenging the audience to think about how these innovations may be integrated into their businesses and society at large.”

Bookings for the upcoming 2022 BMA Conference, at Carden Park, June 6 and 7, are being snapped up, following a two-year hiatus due to the pandemic.

BMA Chief Executive, Tom Reynolds, said: “I am genuinely looking forward to the conference speeches, and especially Melissa’s.

“Being able to see things from a different perspective and explore new ideas is so valuable.

“Our sector, like every part of society, has massive challenges to face to get to Net Zero. That is precisely why we have gone for a sustainability theme this year.

“Combining experience from different professional worlds, and encouraging different ways of thinking, is crucial to move forward. Our sector needs to be a sponge not a bubble.”
