Sustainable toys are playing an increasingly important role at Spielwarenmesse – and the international toy fair has underlined their significance by supporting the second bio!TOY Conference.
Organisers bioplastics MAGAZINE and narocon Innovation Consulting intend to stage the event in a hybrid format. It will take place both digitally and at Nurembergâ€™s Arvena Park Hotel on 7 September and 8 September. Embracing a thorough on-site hygiene concept and the live stream, the hybrid format will ensure that no-one misses the event despite the current circumstances.
A growing number of toy manufacturers are developing and marketing products from circular and bio-based materials and the conference will shed light on achievements in this field within the toy industry and deliver visions for the future. Speakers include delegates from leading industries and brands, innovators at smaller companies and technology experts.
â€œThe topic of sustainability is ubiquitous at Spielwarenmesse, which is why weâ€™re delighted to be supporting the event.â€Christian Ulrich

Dr Michael Thielen, Editor-in-Chief of bioplastics MAGAZINE, added: â€œThe use of renewable raw materials made from bio-mass rather than fossil reserves is on the rise for many good reasons. Itâ€™s all about triggering a consistent and fundamental transformation where actors are called upon to position themselves both for the short and long term.â€ Further information and a list of the speakers can be foundÂ here.
