MARKETPLACE AND BOOKSTORE

Marketplace and Bookstore

APCE Marketplace includes the event bookstore, The PC(USA) Store, stocked with their newest resources, as well as titles and materials from other publishers and about 50 vendors and exhibitors.
 
Marketplace serves as the community center for our annual event, and we are excited for your organization to join the Circle of Faith: 50 years + one and beyond. This year we will incorporate a theme of connection – utilizing charging stations and seating areas to draw people in for a time to recharge, rest, and share in community.
 
Come and enjoy the opportunity to connect, sustain, enrich, and empower yourself and others in our ecumenical faith community. For more information, reach out to [email protected].

Passport and Trivia Program

Event attendees are encouraged to visit every exhibitor and learn about our vendors by completing a passport booklet. This program is supported by our Marketplace partners. Attendees win prizes by having their passport booklet stamped at each booth.
 
It is simple. Pick up a passport booklet at registration, visit each booth in Marketplace, and put the fully stamped booklet in the “passport” box by the exhibit hall entrance before 12 p.m. on Friday, February 11. Shortly following the drawing, you will be notified by text or email. Prizes can be picked up at the registration desk before 6 p.m. on Friday.
 
As we bring back the passport program to our in-person gathering, we want to continue the successful trivia event from the 2021 APCE Virtual Event.
As attendees get stamps for their passport, they will learn fun facts about each vendor. These facts will be compiled into a trivia game during the authors’ book-signings on Thursday evening. We are excited for the ways this in-person trivia game will connect event attendees and vendors in a new way!
