Spielwarenmesse has further underlined the importance of sustainability in today’s toy industry, revealing its support for the second bio!TOY Conference.
The two-day hybrid event – which is running on 7-8 September – will be focused on circular and bio-based plastics for sustainable toys.
“The topic of sustainability is ubiquitous at the Spielwarenmesse, which is why we’re delighted to be supporting the event,” commented Christian Ulrich, spokesperson of the executive board at Spielwarenmesse eG.
The event will take place both digitally and at Nuremberg’s Arvena Park Hotel. A current overview of innovations in sustainable polymers and toys will be presented, along with the opportunities they present in the future.
Speakers include delegates from leading industries and brands, innovators at smaller companies and technology experts.
Dr Michael Thielen, editor in chief of bioplastics magazine, commented: “The use of renewable raw materials made from bio-mass rather than fossil reserves is on the rise for many good reasons. It’s all about triggering a consistent and fundamental transformation where actors are called upon to position themselves both for the short and long-term.”
