Posted by September 12, 2018 Comment

Comic book retailer activist group ComicsPRO has announced a Comic Industry One-Day Conference to be held on September 27th, in two weeks time, at the Baltimore Convention Center, alongside the Baltimore Comic-Con.

This conference will feature a series of one-hour presentations to help retailers improve their businesses.

“This is the first one-day conference we’ve organized.” said Peter Dolan, President of ComicsPRO. “It will hopefully be the first in a series of Fall conferences – each focused on ‘nuts-and-bolts’ presentations/workshops.”

This year’s presentations will be announced in the next two weeks. I should hope so, given when it is scheduled for.

They may include:

  • Working with schools
  • Free Comic Book Day
  • Local Comic Shop Day
  • Social media class
  • Working with universities and libraries
  • Human resources
  • Diversifying product mix
  • Building a kids section and customer base
  • How to profitably sell back Issues

Every retailer attending the Comic Industry One Day Conference will be presented with a gift bag that will include a copy of the 2018 Baltimore Comic-Con VIP Yearbook (Strangers in Paradise) and various other giveaways from Diamond and major publishers. Attending retailers will also receive free attendance to Baltimore Comic-Con.

“We are super happy and excited that the Comic Industry one-day conference is the day before Baltimore Comic-Con” said Marco Davanzo, Executive Director of ComicsPRO. “Baltimore Comic-Con is one of the best in the business. Fans and vendors love it.”

The Cost for registration is $19 for ComicsPRO members, $29 for non-member storefront retailers. Publishers, Distributors, and other interested comics professionals are also invited to attend.
