The Diamond Retailer Summit has wrapped up in Baltimore Maryland. What an incredible day. This is set up like any other conference with breakout session, giveaways, and lots of information coming at you from many different directions. It was a blast. We tried to post as much information as we could while it was happening but there was so much info coming at you that you could really miss if you turned for a second.
The sessions being more geared towards retailers with shops were informative but didn’t interest me much.
What was the highlight was the publisher exhibitions and all the freebies they were giving away. At 3 Pm the doors opened up and that is where the fun began.
One of the coolest things was Jim Lee was at the DC table with tons of DC toys behind him. I stepped up to take a picture with him and Scott Snyder.
There were also Retailer Summit Variants of Action Labs new upcoming series Doll Face.
Finally, after dinner and more presentations retailers were treated to Summit Exclusive books. The line was incredibly long and several arguments occurred among retailers.
All in all a very good day.
Thanks to Mel V., Beau, and Ray for an awesome pre-convention day. Also thanks to Action Labs artist Bill McKay for making sure I got a copy of Doll Face.
