Diamond Comic Distributors' President/CEO Steve Geppi is set to deliver the keynote address at April's annual Diamond Retailer Summit in April. Geppi plans to talk about "the past, the present and the future of Comic Industry" as it pertains to 2018.
“I’m looking forward to delivering this year’s Summit keynote address,” Geppi said. “I want people to be excited about our industry, with so many things ahead of us. Even more, I’m looking forward to talking with our customers and vendors about how we can improve the comic book industry and continue moving forward.”
Geppi joined the comic industry in the 1970s as a comic shop owner, expanding in 1982 to found Diamond Comic Distribution.
This year's summit is scheduled to take place April 4 through 6 in Chicago, immediately preceeding ReedPOP's C2E2 convention. Geppi's keynote will take place during the closing breakfast on April 6.
