The 23rd Annual Hawaii Trade Conference - Phoenix Edition, is being held stateside for the second year in a row and is set to kick-off this weekend. Donruss will again be opening things with a "bang" by sponsoring the registration portion of this year's industry trade conference. The event opens Sunday with the Donruss reception scheduled to take place from 2 - 5 p.m. at the San Marcos Golf Resort in Chandler, Ariz.
Actress Lindsay Wagner, best known for starring in the popular 1970s TV series, "The Bionic Woman," will be Donruss' special guest at the reception. Wagner is among the celebrities who have signed autographs for Donruss Celebrity Cuts, which is scheduled to releases next week. After picking up their registration packets, attendees will be able to socialize with Lindsay and other Donruss employees, while enjoying refreshments and catching the tail-end of the Masters. Attendees are welcome to receive a free autograph from Wagner.
Later in the week, Donruss employees will participate in the Retailer Roundtable and Meet the Manufacturer events. Donruss has once again produced the popular "Black Box," with one-of-one press plates and this year - autographed press plates.
The conference is the key event of the year for the sports collectibles industry. F+W Publications has owned and operated the Hawaii Trade Conference since 1999. For more information about the 23rd Annual Hawaii Trade Conference, visit www.hawaiitradeconference.com.
