Panini America Prepared to Rock Cleveland with Third Annual National VIP Party

July 15, 2014

Toronto Raptors v Charlotte Bobcats

It’s no secret that Panini America has made a habit over the years of annually stealing the show at the National Sports Collectors Convention every summer. From its fan-packed booths to its wrapper-redemption programs to its unrivaled interaction with —  and embracing of — collectors, Panini America pulls out all of the stops for the industry’s marquee show.

But two years ago in Baltimore, Panini America raised the bar on itself — and to unthinkable heights — with the inaugural National VIP Party that offered the company’s biggest collectors and business partners the rare opportunity to rub elbows with special guests Gordie Howe, John Riggins, Pudge Rodriguez and more in a laid-back party setting with live music provided by Biz Markie.

Last year in Chicago, Panini America raised the bar yet again with special guests Yasiel Puig, Johnny Damon, Pedro MartinezChris Chelios, Dan Hampton and more, engaging a record number of party-goers to a live soundtrack provided by the legendary DJ Kool. All the while, party guests were treated to special VIP Gold Packs, drinks, food, free autographs and memories that will last a lifetime.

Later this month in Cleveland, Panini America’s National VIP Party returns with a very special venue and some great guests that will be announced as we get closer to the Panini VIP Party.
