Each year we are blessed to have ministry and missions organizations provide valuable information and resources to our conference attendees. We are grateful to work alongside you as we exalt God and equip church leaders.
As you consider exhibiting, here is some key information:
At the first conference in 2014, approximately 450 pastors, ministry leaders, missionaries, and spouses were in attendance. Since then conference registrations have continued to increase. In 2022, conference registrations exceeded 960, with more than one-third of those being first-time attenders.
