I had never heard of the International Christian Retail Show until the author of this book, Tamara Amos, invited me to come and sign books with her there. All I knew up front was that signing books for people who might buy and like the book sounded fun. If it is a Christian show, then sensibly it must be about my Savior, Jesus Christ, and anything related to Him in the world of free marketing. Looking at the official web site above, I found that there are all-day events planned for several days, with all kinds of big names in the Christian world of different facets of life: musicians, writers, speakers, actors, film, and all kinds of instructive scheduled lectures, classes, and talks to help people. After the experience I will relate what I found here. Here are some explanatory descriptions found at the site above about the show:
The largest gathering of Christian retailers and suppliers in the world.
An exhibit floor with approximately 300 worldwide suppliers of outstanding Christian products to help you see all your top suppliers in one location.
A once-a-year opportunity to fellowship and network with more Christian suppliers and booksellers worldwide than at any other meeting.
A General Session: International Business Vision focusing on topics of interest to anyone doing international business.
The International Marketsquare section of the trade floor where you can focus on networking and obtaining rights to distribute Christian products internationally.
