Sister companies Diamond Comic Distributors and Alliance Game Distributors have selected the sites for their retailer events next year.  The companies' headquarters city Baltimore will once again host a September event, on September 19th and 20th, 2005.  The 2004 Baltimore event drew around 500 retailers (see 'Diamond Looking at 05 Summit Options').


And a Summit event will be held in Fort Wayne on October 22nd and 23rd, carrying on the long tradition of retailer events there started by Chessex before it was acquired by Alliance.
