Members will have three opportunities to attend the workshops, with sessions in Leeds on July 7th, Birmingham on July 14th and Bracknell on July 21st.

The seminars will offer all staff in member companies an opportunity to hear from experts on a host of relevant and upcoming issues facing them.

Presentations this year will include presentations from a number of luminaries in the toy industry and their experiences of a life in the toy business - Bryan Ellis on July 7th, Peter Brown on July 14th and Nick Austin on July 21st. 

There will also be an update from the BTHA on its value of play initiative - the Make Time 2 Play campaign - and information on the Advertising Association’s CHECK website, which offers advertising and marketing advice to companies. 

BTHA members will be able to get an update on the Toy Safety Directive and an introduction to the BTHA Toy Carbon Calculator, a tool for toy designers to design carbon reductions into their toys and ranges.

Other key issues covered on the day will include expert advice from law firm DLA Piper on the legal approach to IP & Digital Marketing and Agency Contracts. A presentation from Mike Hodge, a specialist in international trade and customs duty, will ask the question - Customs Duty, risk or opportunity?

Full BTHA members can also hear from the British Standards Institute as they offer a practical demonstration on access to a core set of British standards as part of full BTHA membership.
