2023 Topics

At the forefront of the 2023 MINT Collective is a series of dynamic Workshops & Panels led by top brands and respected speakers across multiple industries. All MINT Experience 4-day Ticket Holders will have unprecedented access to ensure they leave the event with the tools needed to continue their success in the hobby.

Bullpen & Friends: The Newest Community Experience

Bullpen LA, along with Columbia Hobby, AA Mint and A&N Sports Cards are joining forces to bring you the next generation hobby shop. That’s right, we said it, a hobby shop will be set up onsite at MGM Grand during the MINT Collective. There will be wax, singles, supplies for all, but more importantly Bullpen & Friends will showcase a variety of community focused programming curated by the hobby itself. Every hour on Friday, March 31 there will be discussions, breaks, giveaways, socials and general fun highlighting community engagement as a staple for the future of hobby shops. Best thing yet, Bullpen LA is carrying forward these same experiences as they open their new LA-based hobby shop in Q2 2023. You won’t want to miss this! Stay tuned for a daily schedule as The MINT Collective gets closer.
