The Water Dispenser and Hydration Association (WHA) has postponed its first conference, which was due to be held next week, until October.

WHA general manager Phillipa Atkinson-Clow said the decision had been taken “in the light of the current coronavirus situation, taking into account the safety and concerns of both exhibitors and delegates”.

Mrs Atkinson-Clow confirmed the event will now be on October 29 at the DoubleTree by Hilton in Milton Keynes.

The new WHA represents the amalgamation of the BWCA and the EDWCA and the event will include a morning conference with several industry speakers followed by an afternoon trade show with industry specific seminars.

The event will close with a charity gala dinner in the evening.
