BTHA AGM & Industry Day to take place virtually

Published on: 5th June 2020

The current situation regarding Covid-19 means the usual format of the annual event has been suspended for this year.

The Annual BTHA AGM & Industry Day will now take place virtually on Wednesday 1st July, instead of the physical event scheduled at Great Fosters Hotel, Surrey. Given the current circumstances surrounding the coronavirus, a physical event is not possible this year.

The BTHA AGM will take place at 9:30am BST 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 predicted to end at 10:30am. 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 for the joining instructions.
