Consumers International is delighted to announce that we will be co-hosting the 2018 G20 Consumer Summit in Buenos Aires, Argentina. The Summit will take place on 15 – 16 May 2018 and will be co-hosted in partnership with the Argentinian National Directorate of Consumer Defence.

The theme for this year’s Summit is ‘Effective and inclusive consumer protection’. The Summit will bring together senior representatives from G20 governments, international organisations, consumer groups, global business and civil society to discuss the challenges and opportunities facing consumers in 2018 and beyond.

We will be releasing more information on the event in due course. Visit the G20 website for more information on the Argentinean presidency of the G20.

'Huggybug your Family today!'

At the 2018 G20 Consumer Summit, Consumers International launched a 60-second spoof advert ‘Huggy Bug Your Family’, highlighting some of the problems found in internet-connected children’s products.

We are calling on the G20 countries to improve the security and data protection of children's connected products and services over the next year and support greater international co-operation on the topic.
