“If you really want to make a splash with international buyers,” says Jim Powell, president of ChristianTrade,“ act now. An ad in the International Market Directory gets you exposure to over 1000 suppliers worldwide, and as a bonus you are given an information table to use during the International Vision Celebration.”

The International Vision Celebration is held on the opening Sunday of the International Christian Retail Show organized by CBA America. This year’s show is taking place in St. Louis, Missouri, 27-30 June 2010.  

“The deadline to secure your table is April 1,” adds Powell. “We expect attendance of 300 people, including 200 or so international buyers who will have plenty of opportunity to visit your table.”  

“It is the perfect time to make connections and set appointments,” says Kim Pettit, directory publisher. “International business at ICRS and Marketsquare International is based almost entirely on advance appointments. At ChristianTrade we want to encourage the development of business opportunities for Christian publishers, wholesalers, distributors, and retailers worldwide.” 

This year, the International Vision Celebration will begin at 10:30 a.m. and go until about 3:00 p.m. It will include a worship service featuring Pastor Remi Morgan of The Redeemed Christian Church of God in Lagos, Nigeria, and operator of the largest Nigerian Christian products distributorship. It includes lunch and an afternoon program with reports on the market for Christian products in different regions of the world, and a testimony by LifeWay author Dennis Pethers, a U.K. ministry leader. 

“Reserve your IVC table today by taking advantage of advertising opportunities in the International Market Directory,” adds Pettit. “There are just two weeks left to make your reservation This is the only print publication of its kind for the trade worldwide, and the perfect vehicle to reach international buyers.”
