Free fact finding and networking event

Free fact finding and networking event


Does your business comply with UK competition law? Or could your agreements and practices be accused of restricting free trading and competition between businesses?

Do you want to find out how you can stop your products being copied and sold on e-commerce platforms?

And finally, would you like to grow your business with savvy digital marketing?

Sign up for the BPA’s FREE annual networking event and AGM and learn everything there is to know about these topics. Top London barrister Robert O’Donoghue will explain competition law and how it affects your business; Jet Doran of SnapDragon will talk about tackling counterfeit products on e-commerce platforms; and Ross Hewitt of Secret Pie will talk about how you can get the best out of digital marketing and social media.

The BPA team will also be on hand to help with any technical and safety standard queries, as well as providing information about international trade shows and TAP grant opportunities.

Nursery industry trade press will also be attending, so this is also a great chance to discuss your company’s latest news!

This event takes place at the Marriot Hotel in Grosvenor Square, London on Wednesday 1st July – full agenda below. We do hope that as many as many industry colleagues as possible will turn up and show their support.

There will be free drinks and nibbles at the end of the day – so for catering purposes if you would like to attend, please complete the R.S.V.P. FORM and return it to Julie@b-p-a.org as soon as possible.

The day’s agenda is as follows:

Tackling counterfeits on e-commerce platforms

Jet Doran, Snapdragon

Jet Doran and Rachel Jones will present a short overview of SnapDragon’s work in identifying and taking down sellers of counterfeit goods on e-commerce platforms using registered intellectual property.  

Jet and Rachel will outline issues raised by counterfeits in the industry and give advice on how brands can best defend themselves on a limited budget. They will also explain why trademarks can be the most valuable (and often the cheapest) form of protection against counterfeiters on the e-commerce platforms – which might not be what a legal firm would recommend!
