“Act now to reserve your ad in the 2013-2014 edition of the International Market Directory,” says Kim Pettit, ChristianTrade Association International. “Get exposure to more than 1100 suppliers from 115 countries. As a bonus, you will have access to an information table to use during the Global Welcome Celebration.”

Taking place on the opening Sunday of the International Christian Retail Show organized by CBA, the Global Welcome Celebration is intended to welcome international buyers and suppliers. This year’s show is taking place in St. Louis, Missouri, 23-26 June July 2013.

This year, the Global Welcome Gathering will begin at 10:00 a.m. and end at noon. It will include the opportunity to visit information tables and make appointments, a continental breakfast, and a worship service led by internationally-known evangelist Rev. Dag Heward-Mills, founder of Lighthouse Chapel International in Ghana, now a denomination with more than 1,200 churches worldwide. Heward-Mills is a prolific author, with more than 75 titles to his name, including several international best-sellers.

“We expect 150 people to attend, including 100 or so international buyers who will have plenty of opportunity to visit your table to make connections and set appointments before we worship together.”

“At ChristianTrade we want to link Christian publishers, wholesalers, distributors, and retailers worldwide,” adds Pettit. “The International Market Directory is the only print publication of its kind for the trade worldwide, and we encourage you to participate. Reserve your space—and your table at the Global Welcome Gathering—by April 9.”
