Great turn-out for industry annual event


Great turn-out for industry annual event

The BPA’s annual general meeting in July attracted a great turn out of members who came along to support the industry’s trade association, participate in thought provoking seminars and network with industry colleagues.

Julie James, BPA membership and technical support manager, said: “We are delighted that so many members and the industry press made the effort to come along and show their support of this annual event. AGM’s are renowned for being less than ‘exciting’ and we have worked hard over the last few years to make this mandatory occasion interesting by providing thought-provoking seminars and the chance to network and socialise with industry colleagues.  Feedback has been excellent and we hope that in the future more members will be encouraged to come along.”

Talks included how to stop counterfeit products selling on e-commerce platforms by Jet Doran of Snapdragon; How to make the most of e-marketing and social media by Ross Hewitt of Secret Pie and the ins and outs of competition law by leading London Barrister Robert O’Donoghue. This particular presentation gave food for thought, as Robert explained how inadvertent, careless conversations, particularly in trade association and networking environments, can lead to potential law suits and incredibly hefty fines.

During the AGM, the new BPA Executive Committee for 2015-2016 was appointed as follows: Luke Burns, Cybex GmbH (chairman - pictured); Daniel Lucas, We Made Me Ltd (vice chairman); Andrew Ratcliffe, Dorel UK (treasurer); Lisa Whitfield, Graco UK & Ireland; Selina Russell, Cheeky Rascals; Neil Slagel, Petite Star Products Ltd; John Anderson, Maclaren Europe Ltd; Mike Chapman, East Coast Nursery Ltd; David Welsh, Joie Children’s Products UK Ltd; Christian Jones, The Gro Company; Andy Crane, BabyStyle UK Ltd; Sue Cosmovici, RECARO Child Safety Ltd; Marc Hardenberg, Hardengerg&Co Ltd and Stuart Cartwright, Britax.
