Great American, Panini, Topps partner for “Sweet Spot’’ promotion at 2013 Summit

LAS VEGAS (March 5, 2013) – Great American Distribution has partnered with The Topps Company and Panini America to provide industry retailers with some incredibly sweet rewards for their engagement in the 2013 Industry Summit.

Great American and its manufacturing partners will host a special “Sweet Spot’’ reception that will cap Tuesday’s business events at the annual Industry Trade Conference (March 17-20, Orleans Hotel & Casino, www.theindustrysummit.com). Retailers who engage with Great American, Topps and Panini – and their customers at home via Facebook and Twitter – will be in line for a great selection of savory prizes, including an ultimate “Sweet Spot’’ of an unopened case of product from Panini and Topps.

“Our theme for the event is ‘Win, Win, Win, everybody wins,’ ‘’ commented Brian Bauman, owner of Great American Distribution. “We want retailers to participate in anything and everything during this year’s Summit, and then share with their hobby-store customers back home via social media. It will be a sweet event for everyone who attends — especially our Panini and Topps grand prize winners.’’

Great American’s comprehensive program for the 2013 Summit also includes:

Multiple daily drawings to win valuable Topps and Panini products, designed to reward Summit attendees who attend every business session.
A Corporate Home Base, which Great American will utilize to meet with current and future clients.
Social media interaction. Through Facebook and Twitter interaction, collectors will be encouraged can help their local card store owners win prizes – and store owners will share their Summit successes with their customers back home.
Retailers will pick up a customized Great American “Boarding Pass’’ when they arrive on the Summit show floor Sunday afternoon, March 17. “Our boarding pass will serve as the retailers’ ‘ticket’ to some valuable prizes throughout the Summit – I hope everyone joins us for a great ride,’’ Bauman said.
