Premier Annual B2B Conference Will Host Leaders of the Collectibles Industry

DALLAS (May 29, 2019) – Beckett Media, the world’s most trusted brand in collectibles, announced the 2019 Industry Summit is returning to Las Vegas after a highly successful event last year in Dallas. The 2019 Industry Summit is the premier Business to Business conference for the multi-billion collectibles industry that brings collectible retailers, manufacturers, distributors, professional leagues and industry service providers together to connect on the industry’s important issues. Attendees can expect to learn and share valuable business practices, collaborate, get inspired and network with key industry leaders.

The 2019 Industry Summit will be held September 15-18, 2019, at the Westgate Las Vegas Resort Hotel and Casino. Managing and co-hosting the event will be Ray Schulte, president and CEO of Schulte Marketing & PR, and Ted Barker, senior sales executive at Beckett Media.

“We’re thrilled to return The Industry Summit to Las Vegas and build on the success of last year’s event,” Schulte said. “We’re very focused on maximizing conference content and the networking experiences for all attendees, providing the tools for a path to success that everyone in our industry can utilize. The Industry Summit has grown every year and will continue to evolve.”

The event will offer networking with leading retailers from around the country, one-on-one sessions with representatives from top manufacturers, access to the top collectibles distributors and industry service providers, and valuable business sessions and panel discussions. Beckett and Summit leadership are placing an emphasis on featuring best practices and information sharing at the event.

Added Barker, “We are excited to have the recent $200 million renovated Westgate Las Vegas Resort Hotel & Casino host this year’s conference, at a time that won’t conflict with other industry events. Scheduling the conference during September accommodates our attendees and sponsors which was one of our priorities. In addition, our attendees can expect exciting sponsor related activities throughout the conference, including The Industry Summit Golf Tournament presented by Peach State Sports which takes place Sunday, September 15th at Las Vegas’s Royal Links Golf Club.”
