The British Toy & Hobby Association has announced that the annual BTHA AGM & Industry Day will now take place virtually on Wednesday 1 July, in place of the physical event scheduled at Great Fosters Hotel, Surrey. Given the current circumstances surrounding the coronavirus a physical event is unfortunately not possible this year.

The BTHA AGM will take place at 9:30 via Zoom followed by a presentation and Q&A opportunity with guest speaker Don Williams, Retail Partner at KPMG, who will be discussing the current retail climate.  

The online event is free of charge and predicted to end at 10:30.  

Sir Trevor McDonald who was also scheduled to present at this year’s physical event, has been re-booked for next year’s Industry Day instead. 

This event is exclusive to BTHA and TRA members only. If you would like to join the AGM & Industry Day please e-mail Rebecca@btha.co.uk who will send you the joining instructions.
