BMA postpones forums because of coronavirus outbreak

The Bathroom Manufacturers Association (BMA) has postponed its industry forums in March and April amid concerns over the coronavirus (COVID-19).

The three forums, for finance and sustainability professionals in the bathroom sector, were originally scheduled to take place in late March and early April for HR, but will be postponed until early summer.

Chief executive Tom Reynolds said: “Over the past few weeks, the BMA has been closely monitoring government advice on the COVID-19 outbreak. Yesterday, the Government announced that it would be likely that they may commence the ‘delay’ part of their plans in around 10 days.

“Coupled with this news, we are being notified by several of our members that they are implementing quite tight travel and meeting restrictions at a company level. Rather than proceeding with far fewer participants than we would like, or cancelling the event at the last minute, we’ve taken the decision to postpone now.

“It is with a heavy heart that we’ve reached this decision, as we have assembled an expert panel of external speakers and had tremendous interest from members and non-members alike. We’ll look to reschedule as soon as possible.”
