The Canadian toy and game market is estimated at between $1.6bn-$2.5bn USD at retail value. Besides its deep integration into the global economy and impressive import volumes, Canada posses a pool of talented professionals such as toy designers, video game designers, product researchers, engineers, artists, model makers, toy and game observers, testers, market researchers, and safety experts.

Russia on the other hand is also a significant toy market that has reinvented its production systems and is now offering numerous incremental opportunities to toy manufacturers and to industry professionals as well.

As the shift from the physical to the digital world and backwards along with localized and environmentally friendly production technologies are influencing consumer behaviour across multiple industries, join us at the upcoming virtual round table entitled “How the toy industry is fuelling the global economy” and delve into the Canadian and Russian toy industry opportunities.
