ChristianTrade Association International's (CTAI) Marketsquare Asia 2009 is to be held Sept. 6-8 at the Cityview Hotel, formerly the YMCA International House, in Hong Kong. The Korea Christian Rights Fair will be held Sept. 10-11 in Seoul, Korea--the largest rights market in Asia.

Delegates from more than 15 countries are expected to attend Marketsquare, including a number of mainland Chinese publishers who will again be sponsored by CTAI. The largest Christian trade gathering in Asia, Marketsquare will feature an exhibit floor as well as bookseller and publisher/distributor workshops to be taught by former NavPress Publisher Kent Wilson and CTAI Training Director Jack Scott.

CTAI is offering Asian buyers a free night's hotel lodging to encourage those who otherwise might have a difficult time attending the event. "The Christian trade in Asia has vast potential and is growing despite global economic conditions," CTAI President Jim Powell said. "Our goal is to offer a comprehensive event, especially for those who can't afford the long and costly trip to America or Frankfurt. We expect buyers from the Philippines, Japan, Malaysia, Singapore and more Asian and western nations as well as mainland China."
