Design influencers at conference

The Bathroom Manufacturers Association has added a design influences and trends panel to the agenda for the 2019 Bathroom & Kitchen Business Conference, which takes place on 8th October at the Carden Park Hotel, Cheshire.  

The panel will be led by guest speaker Cate Trotter, head of trends at Inside Trends and will include Lindsay Blair, editor of Kitchens Bedrooms & Bathrooms magazine; Hayley Robson, creative director of Day True and Marianne Shillingford, creative director of Akzonobel Dulux for the UK and Ireland.

BMA CEO Yvonne Orgill said, “We are delighted to have brought together such an experienced and talented panel.  They will share their thoughts on the design trends that matter and those that are likely to have most impact in the future.

“This panel discussion is a great addition to this year’s programme that focuses on current topics, those that will have a real impact on business, providing valuable information so that delegates are better equipped to face the challenges of the ‘Brave New World’. 

“The conference is open to all, not just BMA members and there is a specially discounted rate for those that just want to attend the full day or half day conference. 

The afternoon session includes the trends presentation from Cate Trotter and the design influences and trends panel, which would be an invaluable afternoon for any KBB retailers who wanted to join us.  

Tickets are now on sale and likely to sell fast, so save the date and book soon.”
