New dates announced for
Fall 2020 Christian Products Expo

LARGO, Fla.— As we navigate these challenging times, CPE is looking ahead to the future. While plans are still moving forward, the dates for CPE have been pushed back a week due to the Atlanta Gift Mart. The Mart, originally scheduled for July, moved their dates directly on top of the CPE show dates, forcing CPE to make this move in order to accommodate the gift vendors already scheduled to attend the CPE show. The new show dates are August 23 – 25, 2020 at the Chase Center on the Riverfront in Wilmington, DE.

“In these unprecedented times, we need this show to bring people together now more than ever,” said Christy Dollins, Trade Show Assistant Coordinator.

Dollins has been closely monitoring Delaware’s plans to reopen. Delaware is currently in Phase 2 of reopening and working toward Phase 3. Dollins is working with the Chase Center on procedures at the show to ensure the safety and health of all attendees and is hopeful that by August 23 there will be even less restrictions. At this time, there is no intention of cancelling the show.

CPE is FREE to attend and offers retailers a generous reimbursement program, based on the number of orders written and presentations received at the show. For this show only, CPE has chosen to decrease the required number of orders for reimbursement, as well as add a $50 travel allowance to the lowest tier. This is to help offset retailers’ travel costs to ensure they are able to attend and have the means for order writing at the show.
