ICRS 2015 May Be The Last Big Party

Buried in the bottom paragraph of this Publisher’s Weekly is a suggestion that the next International Christian Retail Show (ICRS) may be the last one at a major venue:

(June 28-July 1), will fulfill the last of CBA’s long-time contracts for large convention centers, and Riskey hinted at a significantly different show in 2016, though he would not provide specifics. “I’m soliciting ideas from everyone,” he said. “We have to serve diverse needs, and I’m open to all ideas for what [my constituents] want the show to be.”

Attendance was up 2%, but many exhibitors had greatly downsized display booths. Read the whole story at Publisher’s Weekly.
