- e-Toys:  Technology is progressing at lightning speed, and more electronic products are being introduced to children at a younger age than ever before. Experts will therefore provide tips on compliance requirements for manufacturers with e-ideas for young children on the drawing board.  They will also explain how to incorporate sustainability considerations during the product design phase.
