Over the past couple of months, the TRBusiness team has heard from its many partners and friends and is pleased to report that everyone we have spoken to so far has been in good health. 


During our calls, people have been reminiscing about the good times, which has prompted us to launch TR Memory Box; an initiative to help us stay in touch with each other and make us all smile during this challenging time.


As an industry, we pride ourselves on the fact that we are a close knit and sociable group of people and in the absence of meeting our industry friends in person, TRBusiness is inviting you to share your photos and fond memories/stories on social media with the hashtag #TRMemoryBox.


Photos and memories can be shared from any era. They could be from 1984 when the industry ventured to Cannes for the first TFWA World Exhibition or in 2020 when we all ventured…nowhere…at least for the first few months of the year. These can be shared on the TRBusiness LinkedIn Page (here), the TRBusiness Facebook page (here) or using #TRMemoryBox on Twitter.



You can also email [email protected] or [email protected] and we will share your photos and memories via our social media channels.


TRBusiness has already reached out to its own team and also to industry veteran and PR guru Rowena Holland, who has kindly shared some fantastic photos with TRBusiness.


So to get things started, here are some of our favourite photos, featuring some familiar faces.


We hope this brings some much needed cheer to the industry at what is a very difficult time for us all. We look forward to seeing some of your photos and memories on social media in the coming days.


Stay at home, stay safe, keep smiling.
