ChristianTrade Association International&mdasha worldwide association of nations, companies, and individuals committed to fulfilling the Great Commission through the distribution of Christian resources&mdashannounces its forthcoming publication of the 2011-2012 edition of the International Market Directory.&nbsp&nbsp

&ldquoOur goal as an association is to encourage unity in the Body of Christ,&rdquo says Kim Pettit, chief operating officer for ChristianTrade. &ldquoThe International Market Directory is a unique way to do this, providing up-to-date contact information to help you connect to suppliers overseas.&rdquo&nbsp

To be listed in the International Market Directory, a company must first join ChristianTrade as a member supplier. This includes book publishers, digital media companies, music producers, apparel and gift manufacturers. It also applies to rights agents, marketing organizations, wholesalers and distributors&mdashin short, to anyone who sells primarily on a business-to-business scale, rather than direct to consumers.&nbsp Advertising opportunities are also available. The deadline is 1 April 2011. For details, contact Kim Pettit (+1-719-432-8428 or kpettit@ChristianTrade.com).

ChristianTrade&rsquos 2011-2012 edition of the International Market Directory will be released in May 2011, just before the July 10-13 International Christian Retail Show to be held in Atlanta, Georgia, USA.

&ldquoLast year we sent the Directory&nbspto 1000 suppliers in 64 countries,&rdquo adds Pettit.&ldquoWhere else can you get this market intelligence all in one place?&nbspIt is unique in the industry. If you want to expand in new markets and reach more customers, then join us and advertise in the next edition.&rdquo&nbsp
