Roger Dyson is to receive a prestigious BTHA Lifetime Achievement Award.

Roger has given the trade more than 50 years, both as supplier and retailer, and the presentation will be made following the Toy Industry Day at Great Fosters Hotel on 28 June 2017.

Jon Diver, BTHA Chairman said Roger has “enjoyed a distinguished career and, along with being highly revered by his peers, has also made a significant contribution to the UK toy industry.”

The Lifetime Achievement Award is bestowed upon only the most dedicated, passionate and respected members of the toy industry, and Roger will join their exclusive ranks. Former winners include Flair CEO Peter Brown, The Entertainer Founder Gary Grant and the four founding members of Character Options.

Speaking about the award, Roger said he was “honoured, delighted and very surprised” to be chosen. “I look forward to receiving the award at what is always a great occasion, the Industry Day at Great Fosters”.

Along with the thanks and respect of his peers, Roger’s achievements will be celebrated in a special presentation and marked with a book and specially commissioned bronze sculpture.
