ChristianTrade Association International is happy to announce that the AmericasMart® Gift Show is extending some special incentives to international buyers who come to Marketsquare International and the Inspirational Value Book Show, to place January 11-13 at the Renaissance Concourse Atlanta Airport Hotel.


“Buyers who attend Marketsquare International can expect a great line up of the best Christian resource suppliers with exciting new products,” says Kim Pettit, chief operating officer for ChristianTrade. “More than 50 suppliers are represented at the show, including a dozen remainder distributors with the Inspirational Value Book Show. We are excited about the buying opportunities we are providing!”


Held 11-13 January, 2011, at the Renaissance Concourse Atlanta Airport Hotel, Marketsquare International opens with a banquet for international attendees Tuesday January 11, and then the exhibition floor opens for business Wednesday 12 and Thursday 13.  Workshops for both Christian publishers and retailers will include a special opportunity to meet authors at a breakfast event on Wednesday. The event ends just prior to the opening of the temporary exhibits for the AmericasMart® Gift Show. 


“CTAI and AmericasMart® Atlanta are teaming up to provide you with the opportunity to make your trip to Atlanta even more valuable,” says Connie Lewis, international retail services manager for AmericasMart®.  International buyers who are ChristianTrade members and attend the Gift Show, held January 12-19, “will receive one free hotel night per attendee at the Renaissance Concourse Atlanta Airport Hotel,” the site for Marketsquare International and the Inspirational Value Book Show. AmericasMart® is also offering incentives to domestic buyers in partnership with CBA.


“This means international and domestic buyers can get a lot done all on one trip and in one US location,” adds Pettit. “Marketsquare International is designed to provide the perfect forum for Christian trade, including domestic and international sales, rights negotiations, training, networking, and fellowship.”
