Executives from the NHL® and NHLPA are scheduled to appear providing shop owners with access and the opportunity to hear them speak on the hockey collectibles industry as a whole. Upper Deck will also be bringing in some surprise guests, have some incredible giveaways for attendees and have some awesome activities to make the conference first-class and memorable for all who attend. Attendees will also get unprecedented previews to upcoming Upper Deck gaming products and authenticated memorabilia as well! The event will take place at the Sheraton Grand Phoenix Hotel on January 11-12, 2017 and more details will be released in the coming weeks including how to register.
“The trading card business can be difficult, especially for our partners in Canada who are dealing with a difficult exchange rate and other challenges,” said Jason Masherah, Upper Deck president. “We believe we can help positively impact sales for our Certified Diamond Dealers by providing them with extremely targeted seminars, detailed product previews, the opportunity to impact product and program planning, memorable events along with access to athletes, executives from our company and our league partners. Upper Deck has always been about innovation and that is not just with regard to our products. This conference will be talked about for weeks afterwards and we hope to help all those who attend get their year off to a great start.”
Upper Deck Certified Diamond Dealers are encouraged to mark these dates (January 11-12, 2017) on their calendars today!
