Time flies and the calendar is already pointing back toward summer and time for the annual International Christian Retail Show. This year it will be in the middle of the country--St Louis, MO--June 27-30.
I wasn't planning to go, but plans are known to change. So now I will be there for Monday and part of Tuesday.
The show has changed a lot over the years. It is no longer the same energetic, festive atmosphere that I recall when I first attended well over 10 years ago. Events and the scale of things have reduced as the market has a whole adjusts to new times, but nonetheless, it should be an enlightening couple of days and a good tool to gauge what is going on throughout the CBA market.
