CPE Christian Product ExpoOver 150 buyers attended the Christian Product Expo in Murfreesboro, Tennessee this September.  Xulon Press was pleased to display 740 individual titles. Our booth was the largest at the expo measuring 80′ long. The CPE Edition of the Christian Book Browser Catalog was placed in every buyers gift bag and handed out at the reception. Many bookstores shopping the booth commented on how they already carry several local Xulon Press authors in their stores, and several have set up books signings as well. As the show continued, representatives from newer stores came by asking how to receive the catalog and placed orders with our team.

CPE is a buying show held twice a year for member stores of the Munce marketing group. These events have anywhere from 80-100 vendors and differ from other U.S. based shows attended by Xulon Press such as the International Christian Retailing Show (ICRS) and BookExpo America (BEA).  At CPE, buyers who visit a certain number of booths for vendor presentations and make purchases actually have their travel and lodging expenses reimbursed by the show. This is a great way for stores to see the latest products and vendors to be guaranteed sales during this event.

The next CPE event will be held in January of 2015. If you would like to reserve a placement for this please call our Marketing Specialist at 1-855-519-1660!

    I was in Murfreesboro, Tennessee at the Christian Product Expo. I am the author of To Encourage your Heart. I was blessed to be there. I was with a family member who owns a Gospel Bookstore in Cheraw, SC.
