Diamond Announces Baltimore as Site for 2015 Retailer Summit

BALTIMORE, MARYLAND – November 19, 2014 – Diamond Comic Distributors has announced that its 2015 Retailer Summit for comic book specialty retailers will take place September 2325, 2015 in Baltimore, MD.

“We’re excited to bring the Summit back to Diamond’s home turf of Charm City,” said Roger Fletcher, Diamond’s VP-Sales & Marketing. “We had a great event in Las Vegas last year and we hope to exceed that in terms of growth and retailer satisfaction with the 2015 Summit.”

Diamond also announced that it will partner with Baltimore Comic-Con, which will be held right after the Summit from September 25-27, to share marketing and strategic initiatives for the combined events. Baltimore Comic-Con’s Exhibit Hall will serve as the Summit’s Exhibit Hall during special “Retailer Only” hours.

“Our 15th annual show in 2014 was our biggest show to date,” said Marc Nathan, promoter of the Baltimore Comic-Con. “It’s only going to get bigger and better. Baltimore Comic-Con, coupled with Diamond’s Retailer Summit, should make for one of the best regional comic-con shows ever held.”

Now in its 13th year, Diamond’s Retailer Summit is the leading annual event for comic book specialty retailers to meet with publishers and vendors, and come together with fellow retailers to discuss the industry and their businesses. Top publishers such as Dark Horse Comics, DC Entertainment, IDW Publishing, Image Comics, and Marvel Comics come and share exciting new projects, while retailers get to network and learn about new business practices to help them succeed and thrive in today’s retailing environment.

Additional details and registration for the industry’s annual retailer event will be announced in early 2015. Publishers and vendors who would like to sponsor or exhibit at the Baltimore Comic-Con should contact Chris McClelland (registrar@baltimorecomiccon.com) now for additional information.
