Written on: July 19, 2016 by SprayTM

The British Aerosol Manufacturers’ Association (BAMA) has been awarded a special commendation, the only trade association to be honored, in the Publication of the Year category at the recent Trade Association Forum (TAF) Best Practice Awards for its ‘Aerosols in Figures’ booklet. BAMA was one of five short-listed associations and attended the dinner and awards ceremony in central London on July 7.

This is the 14th awards dinner run by TAF and Mark Durden-Smith, TV broadcaster and commentator presented the awards.

Aerosols in Figures is a factual journal noting key facts and data about the industry. It includes a chart showing the UK sector’s filling figures covering every year since 1965, providing a fascinating record not only of a changing industry but of changing fashions and habits amongst the population.

The publication carries a Foreword by the renowned environmental campaigner and Founder Director of Forum for the Future, Jonathon Porritt.

The judges commented: “data heavy publications can make for a very dull read, but the design made the contents not only readable, but an enjoyable and engaging read.”

Aerosols in Figures was produced by the trade association’s communication consultancy, Axiom Communications, in conjunction with BAMA and designed by Sue Rentoul Associates. The Awards event was attended by BAMA’s CEO Patrick Heskins, its Communications Manager, Amy Falvey and Axiom Communications’ Director Jo Jacobius.

Patrick Heskins says: “We are pleased to have Aerosols in Figures recognised by industry, making information about the aerosol sector more accessible is a benefit to both those who work within the area as well as those who wish to learn more about it.”

Aerosols in Figures is free and is available to download from the BAMA website or, to request a printed copy, write to
