The powers that be will be in San Fran next month talking toys, brilliant ways children play today, and the direction that the toy industry is headed. If you are interested or involved in the toy industry, you will not be disappointed. I personally know Richard and he is such a dynamic force that this first World Congress of Play will be insightful, thought-provoking, and will change your definition of play.
Richard Gottlieb and Charles Albert Proudly Present the First Ever World Congress of Play – a conference that, for the first time, brings all the play industries together (Traditional Toys, Board Games, Video Games, Digital Play, Theme Parks and more) in one place at one time. The historic conference will take place at the Hilton Union Square in San Francisco on September 9-11, 2013.
By bringing the diverse play industries together, we will foster new relationships, new ideas and new business so that we may all prosper in a rapidly changing play market. More importantly, we will move our institutions in a new direction that no longer sees each type of play as a separate silo but recognizes that all forms of play compete in the same marketplace for revenue and time.
We look forward to seeing you at the 2013 World Congress of Play!
