Xulon Press Leaves Its Mark at the 2015 International Christian Retail Show (ICRS)

Filed in Marketing Your Book by on August 2, 2015 7 Comments

Each year, Xulon Press attends trade shows all over the world. Trade shows promote your books, they promote our authors, and highlight all of the aspects which make Xulon Press the leading Christian self-publisher in the industry.

One of the most exciting trade shows we attended this year was the International Christian Retail Show (ICRS), the largest Christian retail show in the world, which took place right down the street from our headquarters in Orlando, Florida. Ever wondered where your local bookstores and churches get the books, music, magazines and attire they sell? There’s a good chance they picked it up at ICRS!

The Xulon Press booth was featured front and center on the trade show floor, with its impressive banners and billboards towering high above bookshelves that were stocked full of Xulon’s books. The booth itself was impressive: it took 8 crates, 4 pallets, over 8,000 lbs. of material to construct it, and a team of 11 people over 175 hours to put it together!

Xulon’s booth features community-building stations and unexpected comforts, making it a must-stop staple for visitors on the trade show floor: an interactive video trailer kiosk, phone charging stations, comforting music, tables and chairs to sit and read, and free book buyer bags stuffed with merchandise and Xulon books.

Just over 3,000 people attended the 2015 show; among them bookstore buyers, churches, media companies and more.

Christian media is making an impact like never before. From books to blogs to music, the ripples of Christ’s message are making their way from local Christian bookstores into the neighborhoods that surround them—and it’s trade shows like the International Christian Retail Show which give faith-focused authors a chance to ensure their books are part of those waves.

    Do u type @ 933 pages and proofread? Do u do books for a non profit? Would u do the words, the WORD OF GOD taken from a corrected King James Version bible, probably a 1769 edition? No italicized words, no verse numbers, Testaments numbered 1 through 66.

  4. My request to have my book’s trailer redone was treated with consideration and courtesy. A new trailer was designed and I LOVE the replacement.
    Thank you to the design team for a wonderful representation of my book, The Bride of Christ, A Love Story and to Xulon for such excellent service for its authors.
