The next iteration of PlayCon will be the best yet. We’ve built on the most successful components of previous events, and will be offering attendees an experience they can’t get anywhere else. We’ve mined for the best content and arranged thought-provoking speakers to spark new ideas for toy and play professionals. Whether you’re an inventor, marketing professional or C-Suite executive, you’re sure to return to your company brimming with new, actionable ideas, and inspiration to bring those ideas to life.
