In past years Milton Griepp’s ICv2 site hosted an industry event the day before NYCC. This year they’re scaling back a bit with an invite only happy hour event. PR:
ICv2 has announced that it will be hosting an invitation-only event for business professionals, the ICv2 White Paper Happy Hour, on Thursday afternoon, October 8, in the 4th Floor Galleria, River Pavilion at the Javits Center, in association with New York Comic Con.
The event will be held from 4-6 p.m., and will consist of a presentation of the ICv2 White Paper, providing ICv2’s analysis of the state of the comics
market, and a hosted cocktail reception.
ICv2 is hosting the White Paper Happy Hour in place of its ICv2 Conference, a half-day event typically held on the day before the opening of New York Comic Con.
“We’re planning a full reboot of the ICv2 Conference in 2016, and for this transition year we wanted to provide the industry with some of the insights they’ve come to expect from the Conference, and have some fun with our friends and colleagues in the process,” ICv2 President Milton Griepp said of the event. “This year’s event is free, a thank you for the industry’s support of the ICv2 Conference over the years, along with a celebration of the first day of New York Comic Con.”
ICv2 thanks New York Comic Con and Diamond Comic Distributors for supporting this event.
