Events Sustainable plastic toys The second bio!TOY conference – Sept. 7–8, 2021, in Nuremberg, Germany After the great success of the first edition in 2019, the second bio!TOY conference will now be held on Sept. 7–8, 2021, in Nuremberg, Germany. The unique two-day event will once again bring together key players in the industry value chain, from manufacturers of biobased materials to toy suppliers.

Although the bio-toy industry is still in its infancy, experts are confident of its potential for development.” “Our industry has high expectations of materials for toys,” says DVSI Managing Director Ulrich Brobeil. “Companies are now recognizing new opportunities – and we, as an association, want to help find them.
