Training & Events

The BTHA organises a number of events throughout the year from the UK’s largest dedicated trade show for toys, games and hobbies – The Toy Fair ®, through to fundraising events for the toy industry’s charity – The Toy Trust and seminars and educational programmes for members via the BTHA Training Hub.

The Responsible Marketing seminar was very insightful. The calibre of the speakers was great and the data and insight shared was so relevant to industry conversations that are happening right now.

The various presentations given at the Responsible Marketing Seminar were extremely insightful, especially in the current climate where compliance and best practice are forever changing. This (free to members) seminar is great as a refresher course or for marketers who are new to the industry.

I recently attended the seminar on PAS 7100 hosted by the BTHA at the offices in London. The topic was well presented by experts in their relevant fields and was extremely informative. The presentations were pitched at exactly the right level and there were always plenty of opportunities to ask questions. The set up at the BTHA office is great, a modern comfortable setting, so the environment is conducive to learning.

The team took turns being part of the GDPR webinar series and from what we learned we were able to fully instigate our own GDPR compliance policy. Since then we were audited by an external agency who fully endorsed our policy. Thank you to the BTHA for providing such a knowledgeable programme. It gave us all the tools we needed to ensure that we were GDPR ready!
