Adam Martin, co-owner of Dave & Adam’s Card World, has agreed to launch the “10 Key Questions” segment at the 2010 Industry Summit set for Las Vegas.
The “10 Key Questions” segment is designed to provide open, honest and insightful commentary to Summit participants. Martin has agreed to answer 10 unscripted questions from an independent moderator during the Summit’s opening segment, at 9 a.m. Monday, April 12, the Orleans Hotel & Casino.
Martin and longtime partner Dave Silver lead the www.dacardworld.com business, which includes two brick-and-mortar retail stores, a leading online card and collectibles business, and a 40,000 square foot warehouse that serves both retail and wholesale customers.
“Adam is one of the most intelligent, insightful and invested participants in our industry,” said Kevin Isaacson, host and organizer of the event.
“The questions that I’ll ask Adam will be hard hitting and penetrating. I trust it will be an interesting and informative experience for our attendees.”
Martin’s Q&A – which will open the 2010 Summit — is the first of four “10 Key Questions” segments scheduled during the inaugural trade event.
Three additional “Key Questions” participants and interviewers will be chosen prior to the Vegas Summit.
Over 100 participants have registered for the conference thus far. Isaacson helped organize the original Hawaii Trade Show hosted by vintage card dealer Kit Young for several years.
Summit registrants can provide interviewers with suggested topics for the 10 unscripted questions. To suggest a participant or an interviewer, or to recommend a question for Martin’s “10 Key Questions” segment, contact Isaacson at [email protected].
BlowoutCards.com, a leading wholesaler and retailer of sports and gaming cards, will provide a $200-value “gift package” to each brick-and-mortar retail store represented at the Summit.
Thomas Fish, president of BlowoutCards.com, has arranged to ship product valued at $200 or more to each participating store immediately after the April 11-14 Summit. The “gift package” items can be sold directly or utilized in a post-Summit sales promotion.
“We need as many voices as possible to join the conversation in Las Vegas,” Fish said. “We realize the expenses that store owners will incur traveling to Vegas, including possibly closing their shop for a few days. We thought it appropriate to provide an additional profit opportunity upon their return home.”
