COMICSPRO COMIC INDUSTRY CONFERENCE
The COMICSPRO COMIC INDUSTRY CONFERENCE generally takes place in the first quarter of each year. It is a chance for ALL store-front comic retailers (members and non-members) to meet with comic publishers and distributors and other pop culture wholesalers. ComicsPRO members also meet during this conference (ComicsPRO Annual Membership Meeting) to discuss the business of the organization and plan the goals and objectives for the upcoming year.
The COMICSPRO COMIC INDUSTRY CONFERENCE is open to all comic book store-front retailers. Non-members are encouraged to attend and participate. Companies that work within the comic book industry are also invited if they provide a service or product to comic book retailers, and can attend the meeting as a Sponsor.
The COMICSPRO COMIC INDUSTRY CONFERENCE brings together many segments of the comic book industry with the goal of working together to improve the sales and the profile of comic books. We promote this through industry-wide panels so that retailers can speak to many publishers in one setting to discuss current issues and upcoming plans. Our panels also allow retailers and publishers to work directly with our distributors to help improve the method by which comics are brought to the market. We also host industry roundtables, where retailers can meet in small-group settings with individual vendors to discuss issues specific to that company.
Many retailers, publishers, distributors and other vendors consider the COMICSPRO COMIC INDUSTRY CONFERENCE to be the most useful and productive retail-vendor interaction in the industry.
