BAMA Announces details of 2013 Aerosol Awards and Forum

BAMA, the British Aerosol Manufacturers’ Association (BAMA) will hold its annual Forum on Oct. 17–18, with the Awards Dinner on Oct. 17, open to all BAMA members. The two-day BAMA Forum will cover topics such as leak detection, HFO-1234ze for personal care, Authorized Economic Operator scheme, FEA update, compressed aerosol products, spray technology and dry shampoos. Business topics include alternative sources of finance and counterfeiting; and a presentation from Professor Tim Jacob of Cardiff University on olfaction and fragrance in aerosols entitled “Smell is a potent wizard.” There will also be space for members to showcase products and services.

Now in its fifth year, the BAMA Awards recognize and promote the high standards in the UK aerosol industry. They will be presented at a gala dinner where guests will be entertained by acclaimed comedian, writer, broadcaster and GP, Dr. Phil Hammond.

This year, for the first time, there are rewards for BAMA members who enter the Awards and prizes worth a total of £3,000 ($4,500) for the companies who are picked as winners or runners-up in two of the categories.

Companies engaged in any aspect of the aerosol industry, but who are not already members of BAMA, may enter the Awards and apply to attend the Forum and gala dinner as long as they have applied for membership and have their application accepted before the closing date for entries, Sept. 6.
