ICRS/International Christian Retail Show. An annual trade show that draws Christian bookstore owners and buyers to purchase books from publishers who have set up booths to display their current titles. Additional booths include greeting card, gift items, and other merchandise to be sold in the stores. This show is not open to the public, but authors can attend if they get a ticket from their publisher or a Christian bookstore. Authors often take advantage of this opportunity to meet with the editors or agents to pitch a new writing project. Such meetings are limited, and should be set up prior to the show opening.
