BMA Industry Conference 2023 sponsors announcement

The BMA is proud to announce our gold and silver sponsors for the Industry Conference 2023, MacDermid Enthone and Bath Fitter.

As a gold sponsor, MacDermid Enthone is renowned in the industry for its versatile coatings for a wide range of metal and plastic substrates in bathrooms and kitchens.

Silver sponsors Bath Fitter provide customers with a reliable method to remodel bathrooms, from new liners for existing baths and showers to bathroom wall panelling and accessories.

The decision to sponsor the BMA Conference at Carden Park on October 9 and 10 was prompted by the event’s theme – ‘Resilience’.

Terry Kirby, Southern Area Technical Service Representative at MacDermid, said: “We’re proud to support the BMA’s conference in 2023.

“MacDermid Enthone products and processes are designed to significantly reduce our environmental footprint and provide improved environmental compliance and sustainability (through wastewater and energy etc.). Sustainability and compliance are both a cornerstone of the BMA’s work and we look forward to engaging further in these areas.

“Our trivalent chromium technology offers improved deposition properties and, combined with PEARLBRITE, many more surface designs are possibilities.”

Michael J. Prendergast, Vice President of European Sales at Bath Fitter, said: “We believe this is the perfect time to sponsor the conference.

“Remaining resilient in the face of economic pressures is crucial to maintain thriving businesses. Our unique Bath over Bath, shower over shower renovation process, and not the ‘tear out approach’ to upgrade the bathroom space, makes us the bathroom disruptor and ensures a highly competitive edge for Bath Fitter. We look forward to the networking opportunities over the two days.”

BMA Chief Executive, Tom Reynolds, said: “I’m delighted to have the support of MacDermid and Bath Fitter as sponsors for this year’s conference.

“We are all aware that challenges in the bathroom sector are a fact of life, whether that’s due to the current economic landscape or policy changes affecting our operations.

“Both MacDermid and Bath Fitter have vast experience and knowledge, remaining steadfast to grow their businesses over many years and showing the resilience required to thrive.”

The two-day conference has a packed agenda, from charity golf and gin-tasting events to the Oktoberfest dinner, and speaker sessions, including the ‘Big Debate’ to a black-tie gala dinner and the BMA Sustainability Awards 2023.

Attendees will have numerous networking opportunities and gain valuable insights from the range of speakers. It’s also a time to celebrate what the sector does best and to recognise BMA members’ sustainability efforts through the Sustainability Awards.
