UNITE 2018, CBA’s international convention July 8-11 in Nashville, Tennessee, is the global crossroads for Christians involved in the production and distribution of faith-and-family content and resources. Key events especially for international attendees offer opportunities for relationship building, ministry awareness, and business growth.
International buyers also may take advantage of new social media programs to help build retail marketing.
A special welcome session featuring Dr. Clyde Rivers, founder of iChange Nations and a United Nations ambassador, will open UNITE 2018 for international guests 8-9 p.m. Sunday, July 8, in Jackson B of the Gaylord Opryland Resort and Convention Center. Rivers has an outreach to 120 nations and carries a message of the power of the Golden Rule, from local villages to top echelons of power. Rivers also will speak at Worship Him! Monday evening. He will deliver the message with popular worship artists Sandi Patty (Zondervan), Jason Crabb (Daywind/New Day), and Jekalyn Carr (Lunjeal Music/New Day).
The CBA’s International MarketSquare is a hub of activity for international business, from rights and licensing work, to products and services. A destination on the exhibit floor, MarketSquare offers diverse cultural, social, and spiritual impact from Christian resources that reach across the globe with the message of Christ. An exhibit floor full of top U.S. and international companies also welcomes international buyers.
A solid training program from Retail Academy courses to timely workshops are open to all international guests, plus a full agenda of events, including Wednesday’s Ignite the Globe Worship featuring a devotion and message from author Alex Seeley (HarperCollins Christian) and worship artists Kimberly and Alberto Rivera.
Come enjoy fellowship, complementary Monday and Tuesday lunches on the exhibit floor, ministry support, and business growth at UNITE 2018. Buyer registration is free and hotel and food expenses are reimbursable.
