The 71st Spielwarenmesse international toy fair will take place from Jan. 29-Feb. 2 at Germany’s Nuremberg Exhibition Centre, and the programming is already taking shape. The Toy Business Forum will take place in the TrendGallery (Hall 3A) with new perspectives on industry topics presented daily. The free talks are simultaneously interpreted into English or German, and will focus on five key topics — trend, change, digital, retail, marketing — with one presented daily from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m.

Trade fairs are forums for new products, knowledge transfer, and communication. For many years, trade visitors have valued the Toy Business Forum at Spielwarenmesse as a useful source of information. The presentation area within the TrendGallery in Hall 3A is well-known for shining a light on new perspectives. The chosen topics gravitate around the challenges facing the industry, now and in the future. The talks are free of charge and are simultaneously interpreted into German or English.

Additional insights will be showcased in the LicenseTalks series presented by License International (formerly LIMA) and License Global. Talks will take place from 10:30-11:30 a.m. Wednesday-Friday at the Toy Business Forum.

The full programming schedule will be made available in mid-November at
