BCF Annual Conference 2019 speaker line up announced


The British Coatings Federation (BCF) has announced its speakers for their Annual Conference, to be held at the Forest of Arden Marriot Hotel & Country Club, Thursday, May 9.

BCF’s Annual Conference & Gala Dinner is a networking event for coatings professionals to develop, influence, support and exchange information.

This year’s programme features a series of insightful talks from a host of speakers, as they explore the topics that mean the most to coatings, printing ink and wallcoverings manufacturers, including the political and economic position of the coatings industry in the wake of Brexit, innovations in print and technology, crisis management and chemical safety and careers.

The BCF welcomes keynote speaker Mandy Hickson, a former RAF fighter jet pilot.

As the second woman to fly the Tornado GR4 operationally, Mandy’s story both motivates and inspires, sharing lessons learned in teamworking, crisis management and leadership.

Following the Conference is the annual networking Gala Dinner, taking place at the Forest of Arden marquee, where delegates will have an opportunity to catch up with some 130 industry contacts.

The BCF would like to thank their sponsors: Lead sponsor Fenton Packaging and also Tradebe and Synthomer.
