Pack your favorite jersey! MagX’s “Tailgate Party” returns to 2014 Summit

Retailers sporting their favorite team’s apparel will qualify for bonus prizes

LAS VEGAS (Jan. 13, 2014) – When is an Cam Newton jersey, New York Yankees jacket or even a Chicago Bulls t-shirt appropriate apparel for an industry trade conference? During the highly-regarded “Industry Tailgate Party’’ hosted by Magazine Exchange and its manufacturer partners during the 2014 Industry Summit!
Magazine Exchange, a leading wholesale distributor based in Grants Pass, OR, made a huge impact in 2014 by inviting retailers from across the U.S. and Canada to don their favorite team’s apparel and attend an Industry Tailgate Party. MagX owner Roger Barry has confirmed the Tailgate Party will return again in 2014 – with even more prizes and surprises in store.

“We had a blast at last year’s Tailgate Party,’’ Barry said. “We received so many positive compliments from retailers and our suppliers that we knew we just had to do it again.’’

The 2014 MagX Tailgate Party will be held Monday, March 17. All Industry Summit attendees are encouraged to wear apparel from their favorite player or team to Monday’s business session – jerseys, jackets, t-shirts, hats and even helmets are welcome. The most creative, innovative and unique “team colors’’ outfits will receive bonus prize entries into the Tailgate Party giveaway – featuring great gifts from MagX’s industry leading lineup of suppliers. Retailers will earn additional prize entries during a special MagX “team contest’’ during the Tailgate Party – and savvy retailers will be able to qualify for special “early-bird’’ prizes by visiting MagX’s booth when the Summit show floor opens Sunday, March 16.

“It will be a fun way to share our love of sports – whether it’s baseball or basketball or minor-league hockey or professional wrestling,’’ Barry said. “I can’t wait to see what everyone will be wearing as they enter the Tailgate Party – it will be a great conversation starter, and will set the table for some fun prizes throughout our event.’’
In traditional Tailgate Party fashion, MagX’s luncheon will feature burgers and hot dogs with all the fixings, as well as onion rings, salads and much more. For more information on the Tailgate Party or other Industry Summit events, contact Summit host Kevin Isaacson at
