We hope you will join us for UNITE 2018, where the global network of Christian product providers can gather and encourage each other face to face. Below is convention info specific to those based outside of the United States. More details will be added soon.

UNITE 2018
Nashville, Tennessee, USA
July 8-11, 2018
Need a visa?

If you need a visa to travel to the United States, we can send you a letter of invitation to apply for one. To receive this invitation letter from CBA, complete both steps below by 16 February, 2018. 

  1. Send a request to info@cbaonline.org. Simply state that you plan to attend UNITE 2018 and request an invitation letter.
  2. Complete the International Attendee Early Registration form either online or by downloading the PDF and sending it in.

If you are not sure whether you need a visa, visit the U.S. Visa Wizard to find out. CBA will help you however we can to make the process smooth for you.

If you do not need a letter for a visa, simply wait for the regular registration period which will open in early 2018.

Dates for Booth Sales and Registration

Booth sales for the convention are scheduled to open in November. Attendee registration is scheduled to open early 2018.

MarketSquare International

UNITE 2018 hosts CBA MarketSquare International, reserved for international rights and licensing sales. MarketSquare this year will be a designated area on the main exhibit floor.

MarketSquare is not simply for international guests, it’s for international rights and licensing sales. Booths within MarketSquare are different from other exhibit floor areas because the design is for meetings and sales rather than product display. Booths have higher curtains for privacy, and include a table and chairs.  If you would like to display your products, a regular exhibit floor booth might be better for you. If you would like an area designed to accommodate your rights and licensing discussions, MarketSquare is for you!

International Networking Opportunity

A special networking event has been planned just for you. This will give you opportunities to share ideas and get to know others who may have similar experiences as you.

International Meet and Greet
Wednesday, 11 July
10-11 a.m.


The closest airport to the convention is the Nashville International Airport (BNA). A shuttle service to the convention hotel is available, and more information will be provided soon regarding transportation.

CBA realizes you make important financial and time investments to attend UNITE. We strive to plan UNITE so you make the most of your investments and have opportunities to connect with and be encouraged by the global network of those working to spread the Gospel around the world. Thank you for your work. We look forward to seeing you in July!
