Registration and hotel reservations for the International Christian Retail Show June 22-25 in Atlanta opened Feb. 12.
The “Cause to Celebrate” theme reflects Christian stores’ unique position to succeed in new retailing, the causes industry companies support, and CBA’s 65th anniversary.
The event has a future-directed agenda tacking big faith and business issues. New research will be presented on what viable retailing will look like in the future, plus a case study of publisher-direct digital marketing that bumps sales through stores.
The future of Christian stores in a time of digital shopping, marketing, and content delivery will be addressed, with special programs on parallel trends in the church. Timely and relevant training sponsored by Spring Arbor Distributors will explore how retailers can revamp strategic direction to thrive in this new environment, including how Millennials will change everything.
Pastor Kyle Idleman will give the message at Sunday’s Worship Him services, and global evangelist Ravi Zacharias will provide insights into new evangelism around the world. A special appearance by Robertson family members from the hugely popular Duck Dynasty TV series is set.
Popular programs, such as Cover My Expenses, will continue. This special program offers show-only specials that offset travel costs, sponsored by your favorite suppliers.
An expanded Ministry in Action program will benefit Buckhead Christian Ministry, a network of 28 Atlanta-area churches dedicated to helping people in transition and the homeless. The program offers food and support but also education, counseling, and employment help.
Don’t miss this opportunity to gather with co-laborers for connecting, learning, discovering new product and ideas, and serving.
Affordable hotel rates with continued free shuttle service from hotels to the convention center are available now.
