ABOUT THE COMICSPRO ANNUAL MEETING


Join us for what has become one of the most important retailer gatherings in the industry! Retailers, publishers, distributors and vendors gather to discuss major industry issues and to develop ways to improve our market. All retailers, and all vendors interested in reaching comic book retailers, are invited. ComicsPRO members also use this meeting as an opportunity to discuss the organization's current projects and plans. Help plan the direction of your trade association, and get involved in the discussion that kicks off the industry's year at our Annual Meeting!

HOW CAN MY COMPANY PARTICIPATE?


Comic Book Stores:
Comic book retailers can register online. The registration fee is discounted for ComicsPRO members, but you do not have to be a member to attend! Attendees must be able to represent their company in votes and decisions during the discussion, so if you are a comic book store employee, the store owner must designate you as a company representative. Six meals are included in your registration fee, and all retailer attendees are presented with a gift bag of product donations from our sponsors! 

Publishers, Distributors and other Vendors:

Publishers, distributors and other vendors interested in working with the industry's most progressive retailers are invited to attend the AMM as official sponsors.
