BMF announces sustainable conference theme

Builders merchants trade association the BMF has announced the theme for its 2020 BMF Members Conference in September.

Sustaining Excellence will see the environment and sustainability as key topics within the business conference sessions, with particular focus on Building a Sustainable Britain, which will also be reflected in the BMF’s parliamentary programme throughout the year.

Landscaping suppliers Marshalls and sister company Stomemarket are the  headline sponsors for 2020.

The two-day event includes a Conference and black-tie Awards Dinner on 17 September at the De Vere Beaumont Estate, Old Windsor, Berkshire.  The distinctive venue is set in 40 acres of parkland and created from an array of historic buildings following a multi-million-pound refurbishment.  Close to the M25 and Heathrow and with fast rail links from London and Reading, it is easily accessible by road, rail and air.

The BMF’s annual Golf Tournament, sponsored by Monument Tools, will be held on the previous day, 16 September, at the nearby Windlesham Golf Course.  An alternative social activity, sponsored by First Event, will also be on offer that day.

BMF CEO, John Newcomb said: “We are delighted to have found another superb Conference venue in the Royal Borough of Windsor and look forward to welcoming members there in September. The BMF’s mission is to help members build excellence within their business, which gives us our overall theme for this year’s members’ Conference, and the sustainability of the built environment is a key concern for the industry as we strive to deliver low carbon solutions for today’s housing.  We will be announcing the full speaker programme in the coming months.”

Peter Hallitt, Group Trading Director of Marshalls said: “The BMF Members’ Conference and Awards Dinner grows in stature each year and is a book-marked event across the building materials industry. We are delighted for the opportunity to support its continued development as this year’s headline sponsor.”

Bookings are now open for Early Bird merchant delegates.  For more information please contact June.upton@bmf.org.uk or call 02476 854980
