UK: HTA Seminar – GDPR: How will it affect my business?

With the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) coming into force on 25 May 2018 the Horticultural Trades Association (HTA) is hosting a half day seminar for businesses on Wednesday 28 March 2018 to assist them with compliance.

Whilst these changes are supplementary to the existing regulations it is very much designed to put data protection higher up the business agenda rather than treating it as an afterthought. Businesses need to ensure that they have a legitimate reason and consent for using data – giving individuals more control over their personal data.

The seminar, which will be held at Horticulture House, Chilton, Oxfordshire, follows on from a session on GDPR held at the HTA Marketing Forum last year and is open for members (£30) and non-members (£50) to attend. It will consist of two speakers along with a Q and A session in which delegates can ask questions specific to their businesses.

Catherine Ripley from solicitors Field Seymour Parkes will talk through how GDPR impacts on your organisation and the types of changes that need to be made to be compliant, with reference to loyalty card and membership schemes.

Edwin Meijer from Garden Connect, will explain what they have been doing to make sure all their activities are compliant and delegates can use their learnings as practical take homes to make the changes necessary within their own businesses.

These talks will be followed by a Q & A session in which delegates can ask specific questions to help them on the GDPR compliance journey.
Due to the interactive nature of this event places will be limited and so to find out more information and book your place visit
