Munce Group is seeking to meet the needs of Christian retailers who are unfamiliar with the country’s largest gift mart with its new CPE at AmericasMart. The shorter-format CPE will be held in Atlanta, Wednesday, Jan. 8, in conjunction with The Atlanta International Gift & Home Furnishings Market.
As the Jan. 7-14 show draws buyers from around the globe, visiting AmericasMart’s three multi-story buildings can be intimidating for newcomers. To offer guidance for how best to shop the show, Munce is hosting Christian retailers—not just Munce Group members—at AmericasMart.
On Jan. 8, there will be a day of exhibits, workshops, meals and product presentations. Christian retailers will discover the best way to get around the mart with its unusual layout and what key vendors to visit as well as other time-savers.
Along with the gift vendors retailers will visit at AmericasMart, Munce Group has have invited additional vendors and service providers in books, Bibles, music and other product categories.
To date, the exhibitors attending CPE at AmericasMart are: Abingdon Press/Common English Bible, Anchor Distributors/Whitaker House, Art & Soul Works/Gifts That Give Back, Barbour Publishing, Bob Siemon Designs, Bookstore Manager, Bridgestone Multimedia Group, CBA, Charisma Media, Christian Art Gifts, Crossway, DaySpring, FaithWords, HarperCollins Christian Publishing, Kerusso, Kingstone Comics, New Day Christian Distributors, New Hope Publishers, New Leaf Publishing Group, Rose Publishing, Send the Light Distribution, Swanson Christian Products and Waterbrook Multnomah Publishing Group.
Registration for the Atlanta gift show will get retailers into CPE at AmericasMart, but any Christian retailer who wants free breakfast, lunch and dinner will need to RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org to reserve a spot. Learn more about the event at cpeshow.com.
