A passion for sharing knowledge

As far back as the 1950s HTA was providing training and knowledge sharing meetings. We've changed with the times, and we now offer a wide range of conferences, seminars, market data, elearning and much much more.  But we're still as passionate as ever about supporting our members' learning, professional development and business improvement.


Training and events

Our events and conferences put you in touch with like-minded people to learn about market trends and the opportunities they are driving. They cover topics as wide ranging as plant health through to marketing and catering. Take a look at our calendar to see what's coming up.

We also provide training workshops for garden centre staff, and an exciting range of elearning materials. We're especially excited to be working with the Garden Centre Association to offer their innovative GROW elearning platform to HTA members.
