The British Aerosol Manufacturers’ Association (BAMA) will hold its 6th annual Innovation Day on Wednesday, April 19, at the Royal Armouries Museum in Leeds, England. Since its inception in 2018, the yearly event has grown from a classroom-style lecture with 50 representatives in attendance to over 150 participants filling an auditorium with an adjoining exhibition hall.
Innovation Day assists in the promotion of various supply chain innovations throughout the aerosol industry and is attended by visitors from the UK and abroad. In previous years, the event featured speakers who are leading experts in a wide range of topics such as changing consumer behavior, smart design, the latest manufacturing approaches and sustainable packaging innovations.
The focus of this year’s BAMA Innovation Day will be on the various aspects of environmental sustainability and circular economy with mono-material products, composite containers, refillable aerosol solutions and upcoming propellants from non-fossil fuels.
Each speaker at Innovation Day 2023 will be able to answer questions from the audience both in the auditorium and at their table in the exhibition hall. Additionally, in the adjoining hall, attendees can watch on-screen simulations, observe physical demonstrations of how a solution works, and handle samples and prototypes.
From recyclable actuators and spraycap technology from Weener Plastics and Precision to gas-free home refillable cans from Fillinfinite and Greenspense, there will be plenty of products and technology for aerosol scientists and marketing executives to examine. Visitors can also check out new equipment, such as the Re-Spray in-store aerosol refilling machine currently being used in Hungary, or Polytag’s tracking of individual products, which offer ready-to-market options that will speed up the UK’s progress towards a circular packaging market.
BAMA’s Innovation Day is open to both Association members and non-members; entry is free, although visitors are required to pre-register online at bama.co.uk.
