Panini America Delivers Preliminary Details on 2016 National VIP Party in Atlantic City
For most collectors who attend the National Sports Collectors Convention every summer, the industry’s marquee consumer event is essentially a five-day celebration of collecting passion. But during each of the last four years, Panini America has breathed new life into that celebration with its exclusive — and quite breathtaking — National VIP Party.
Anyone lucky enough to have attended the Panini America National VIP Party in 2012, 2013, 2014 or 2015 will tell you that there’s no other party quite like it. From the guest list to the goodies to the food to the fun, Panini America’s National VIP Party has not only become the talk of the National Sports Collectors Convention — it’s talked about for days, weeks, months and even years afterward, too.
On August 6 in Atlantic City, the Panini America National VIP Party returns, intent on another epic night. And considering that previous guests have included Mike Tyson, Joe Namath, Kyrie Irving, Yasiel Puig, Jose Canseco, Julius Erving, Dominique Wilkins, Tom Glavine, Pedro Martinez, Johnny Damon and so many more, you can bet that Panini America officials have another jaw-dropping list of stars to headline this year’s gala.
Once again this year, the only way to gain admission to the exclusive, invite-only event is to qualify for a ticket by purchasing selected Panini America product at the National from one of four approved National VIP Party vendors (Atlanta Sports Cards, Blowout Cards, Dave & Adam’s Card World and Steel City Collectibles).
VIP Party attendees also will receive National Silver Packs at the Panini America booth upon qualifying. They’ll also receive special Gold VIP packs at the party Saturday night and autographed 8 by 10s from every VIP guest in attendance.
For 2016, Panini America officials have added an exciting new Super VIP level that will include double the typical VIP Party swag, exclusive VIP access to the star-studded list of guests, exclusive serial numbered autographed photos (including one piece suitable for framing), a Super VIP Black Box, an exclusive Panini Authentic autographed memorabilia piece and much more.
For both VIPs and Super VIPs, the party delivers a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to rub elbows with sports royalty in a laid-back atmosphere.
