To provide our member retailers with the highest quality Christian advertising materials and business services to equip believers for the work of the ministry.
To further the cause of God's Kingdom by putting quality Christian products into the hands of people everywhere as quickly and efficiently as possible.
To offer value pricing, effective marketing and excellent service.
To grow and serve independent Christian retailers who are serving the Lord. Everything that we do is developed in conjunction with a board of experienced retailers who help us effectively achieve this mission.
The Munce Group began hosting CPE over 10 years ago because of the challenges independently owned Christian store owners and managers were facing. They needed to be encouraged. They needed to be equipped. And, they needed to be engaged in order writing. And those three needs (encourage, equip, and engage) serve as the foundation of our event.
We have found that the retailers who attend CPE choose to spend their time out of the store at CPE and no other tradeshows. In fact, the stores have told us that if it wasn't for CPE, they would not attend any tradeshow.
CPE provides us with an opportunity to encourage stores and help stores get training and stay informed of trends happening in our industry and in retail in general. CPE also provides retailers with information regarding new products so they can be in-stock on upcoming promotions.
Attendance from stores is vital to their long-term health and viability. Yes, while we encourage order-writing to make the show worthwhile to the exhibitors, we know that CPE strengthens the independent in such a way to keep them the show worthwhile to the exhibitors, we know that CPE strengthens the independent in such a way to keep them strong throughout the year. And if the independents are healthy, vendors will be healthy, too.
