I Am Speaking and Podcasting During the Spielwarenmesse; Hope to See You There


Chris Byrne and I are heading to Nuremberg, Germany for the Spielwarenmesse, the world's largest toy show.


I will be speaking at 2:15 PM, Wednesday, January 29, at the Toy Business Forum in Hall 3A.

The title of my talk is: "The world is changing and so are we." My talk is described as: "Demographic shifts in population plus structural shifts in how the world does business means that the toy industry must anticipate inevitable change and adapt to it. A look at how the toy industry can take advantage of a changing world and prosper."

I hope you will be there to not just hear me speak but also, Reyne Rice of Toy Trends (USA), Clara Blasco of AIJU (Spain), and Philippe Guinaudeau of Kidz Global and Trendz Committee (France). Click here to review the program.
