Diamond Retailer Summit to Return to Chicago and C2E2 in 2018

Diamond Comic Distributors is excited to announce that its 2018 Retailer Summit for comic book specialty retailers will take place April 4-6, 2018 in Chicago, IL ahead of C2E2 from April 6-8.

“Chicago and C2E2 were the perfect venue for this year’s Summit,” said Dan Manser, Diamond’s Director of Marketing. “We look forward to continuing our partnership with ReedPOP to deliver a stellar experience for comic shop owners during 2018’s Retailer Summit ahead of C2E2 in Chicago.”

“The Diamond Retailer Summit was an excellent way to kick off C2E2 in 2017 and we’re thrilled that it will be returning to Chicago in 2018,” said Mike Armstrong, ReedPOP’s Event Director. “The content delivered through the Summit and the community of retailers descending on C2E2 made the show that much better and we’re looking forward to what’s to come in 2018.”

Diamond’s Retailer Summit will celebrate its 16th year in 2018 and remains the leading annual event for comic book specialty retailers to meet with publishers and supplier who come together to discuss the industry and their businesses. Top publishers such as Dark Horse Comics, DC Entertainment, IDW Publishing, Image Comics, and Marvel Comics sponsor the event 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 late 2017.  Publishers and suppliers who would like to sponsor or exhibit at the Summit should contact Maryanne Marlowe (mmary@diamondcomics.com) for additional information.
