With a stunning line up of speakers all aspects of todays bathroom industry will be covered, from bathroom design, sustainability and lighting, to branding, business strategy and the economy. In these difficult times this will be the S M I L E Conference of 2009 - designed to Stimulate and Motivate delegates, looking at the very latest in Innovation, Legislation and Education in the industry.
New Feature The BMA Bathroom Awards
Steve Lee, of the Bristan Group and President of the BMA will chair the event. We have an additional feature at this years Conference commented Lee. Members of the BMA have thought for some time that the hard working editors and staff of the trade magazines and exhibition organisers dont seem to get the accolades which they deserve. The bathroom industry would be weaker without them. So this year we are introducing the new BMA Bathroom Awards.
Winners selected from the shortlist of nominations received from the members of the BMA will be announced at the Conference Gala Dinner and will recognise the very best in bathroom journalism and exhibitions.
Shortlisted nominations are:
2009 BEST TRADE JOURNALIST
Lisa Arcangeli | Andrew Davies | Philippa Turrell
2009 BEST CONSUMER JOURNALIST
Jackie Daly | Linda Clayton | Emily Peck
2009 BEST BATHROOM MAGAZINE

2009 BEST BATHROOM EXHIBITION
KBB Birmingham | EcoBuild | Sleep
Yvonne Orgill, Chief Executive of the BMA is extremely pleased with the arrangements for this years conference. BMA staff have worked hard to create a sparkling conference for 2009. Great speakers, an industry exhibition, the gala dinner and of course the new awards will go to make this a memorable business event."
