Loudon, Tennessee – The Polyurethane Foam Association is shifting its Fall 2020 meeting to a digital format, in the light of current travel restrictions and meeting size limitations because of Covid-19. The meeting was due to have been held on 4&5 November in San Antonio, Texas.
‘PFA members and staff both miss the networking and opportunity to visit with friends,’ said PFA executive director Russ Batson. ‘We can’t duplicate that online, but we do have a strong line-up of technical papers that will be presented. In addition, attendees will get updates on regulatory developments, workplace safety rules and sales trends in key flexible polyurethane foam markets.’
This year’s technical papers will cover topics such as employee training, environmental technologies, and catalysts for bed-in-a-box applications.
Chip Holton, PFA’s current president and president of NCFI Polyurethanes, said that the association has remained active this year, despite the pandemic. ‘We have stepped up electronic communications with our membership, and maintained our programs in regulatory monitoring, Covid best practices, and advocacy for the flexible polyurethane foam industry. ‘While we look forward to being able to gather in person as soon as possible, our digital meeting will continue to give our members time-sensitive information vital to their businesses.’
