Polyurethane Foam Association Cancels Spring Meeting
The Polyurethane Foam Association (PFA) announced that it has cancelled its Spring meeting, scheduled for May 20-21 in St. Petersburg, FL.
Programming assembled for the meeting, including keynote presenter Steve Vogel and multiple technical and industry issues presentations, will be rescheduled for PFA’s Fall Meeting, November 4-5, 2020, at the Omni La Mansion del Rio in San Antonio, TX.
PFA will be contacting anyone already registered for the May meeting to offer refunds or apply registration fees to the Fall meeting.
“PFA will remain an active resource for the flexible polyurethane foam industry during these challenging times,” said Chip Holton, PFA President. “PFA staff continues to monitor, analyze and influence standards and regulations. We continue to develop member tools and respond to your inquiries. With the cancellation of the May meeting, PFA will step up online communications to make sure our members and other interested parties get time-sensitive information.”
Holton said that PFA is looking forward to bringing the industry together, once the current health threat ends. “In San Antonio, we’ll have added cause for celebration, as PFA marks its 40th Anniversary,” he said.
