Panini America, GTS Distribution Awarding 20 Scholarships to 2013 Industry Summit

January 11, 2013


Thanks to a unique partnership between Panini America and GTS Distribution, 20 hobby shop owners from around the country will have the opportunity to win a free scholarship to the 2013 Industry Summit in Las Vegas. And all shop owners have to do to be eligible is send an email.

Panini America and GTS Distribution teamed up at last year’s Industry Summit to produce the unforgettable Ultimate Case Break. For the 2013 event in March, the two companies are upping the ante by not only bringing back the Ultimate Case Break, but by awarding the 20 free scholarships to attend the Industry Summit.

To be considered for one of the 20 free scholarships, shop owners should email by January 27, 2013. The subject of your email should be “2013 Summit” and in it, include your name, your store name, your phone number and whether or not you’ve attended the Industry Summit before.

Panini America and GTS Distribution will begin announcing winners in February. Stay tuned to The Knight’s Lance for the announcement of winners and additional updates on Panini America’s grand plans for the 2013 Industry Summit.

    If you’re a hobby shop owner, you should really consider making it to this event. I went in 2010 when I had my shop and met a lot of really nice people, including Tim from COMC, guys from Beckett, and reps from all the major manufacturers. Panini gave away Black Boxes to attendees and made everyone’s day. Shops can thank Panini and the discussions at the Summit for the map pricing groundwork that was laid back then.

    Awesome for hobby shop owners that may have otherwise been unable to make it!

    A very cool gesture and a awesome partnership that hopefully will strengthen the hobby. Is there a reason why it only open to U.S. dealers?

    Can anyone go to the Panini Summit or is it just for Shop owners only and if we can go what do we do to go?

      Industry professionals, primarily. Dealers, distributors, manufacturers, media.
