The annual event has been cancelled due to the coronavirus pandemic

The British Aerosol Manufacturers’ Association (BAMA) has cancelled this year's annual Innovation Day due to Covid-19.

The event was expected to take place on 7 July at the Royal Armouries in Leeds, UK, but has now been postponed until 21 April 2021.

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 will be offering members the chance to view the presentations planned at this year's Innovation Day via a webinar series.

Heskins added: "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 measures in place, whilst still giving both delegates and presenters the chance to meet and interact was not possible."

BAMA represents the aerosol industry, from suppliers of components and ingredients to fillers and marketers of aerosol products.

In April, new figures by the BAMA reported that more than 1.5 billion aerosol cans were filled in the UK last year, with antiperspirants and dry shampoos driving the sector.
