BWCA Training – in great demand

Industry specific training is one of the lynchpins of the BWCA. Members value that courses in hygiene, distribution and plant management, POU installation, sanitisation and crisis management will keep their staff informed, motivated and professional.

The BWCA released its 2018 dates yesterday, 14th November, and have already filled the Distribution Management to BWCA Standards course being held on 7th March.

So, to meet demand an extra course will be held on 21st March at the same venue in Fillongley.


Exhibitors from the UK, Europe and the USA will be gathering at the BWCA trade show on the afternoon Thursday 23rd March at The Nottingham Belfry, Nottingham NG8 6PY.

Free entry to both the trade show and three extremely informative and relevant seminars makes this a very worthwhile use of time for busy people in the water cooler industry.

AND, many exhibitors will be launching new products, offering on-the-day deals and special promotions.
No need to register – just arrive on the day – starts at 13:00.

See you there.
