The Diamond-Alliance Retailer Summit in Baltimore drew over 600 retailers, according to the companies.  In previous years, multiple events have been held (see “Summits Up in 2008”), but this year, a single event was held in Baltimore.  As a result the Baltimore event took on a stronger gaming hue, reflecting the consolidation of the Fort Wayne Summit with Baltimore’s (see “Gaming Demos and Programming”).


The Diamond-Allliance Retailer Summit was held in conjunction with Baltimore Comic-Con (see “Baltimore Comic-Con an Old School Success”).
