The Catholic Marketing Network will be returning to the Northeast in 2018 for its annual trade show, after a three-year hiatus. “We’re really excited about returning to the Northeast and especially pleased with the Lancaster, PA venue,” said CMN President Alan Napleton. Lancaster is just an hour west of Philadelphia and within a day’s drive of nearly 40% of CMN stores and suppliers. The Northeast has always been a good location for our event and because it’s been three years since we’ve been in the area, I think you’ll see a nice increase in attendance.”
“We were so pleasantly surprised when we did our site visit to Lancaster,” said CMN VP of Operations, Paola Ciskanik. “The venue is absolutely beautiful with both the hotel and exhibition hall all under one roof. In addition, the Lancaster area offers some wonderful family-friendly attractions that are very close, so we’ll be encouraging attendees to bring the kids!”
Early comments by CMN regulars agree.
- “That’s a fabulous location. Thanks so much!!!” Peace, Noreen Wolleben; Monastery Gift & Book Shoppe, Guilford, CT.
- “I just returned from Lancaster, PA–a charming destination city in Amish Country, close to Philadelphia, with much to do and see. The Convention Center is top-notch, and I can’t wait to speak and sing again to the wonderful family of CMN in 2018!” Kitty Cleveland, Catholic recording artist.
Show dates are July 31st through August 3rd, 2018, with Exhibitor leasing beginning November 15th. Store registration begins January 15th.
