The CMN Trade Show was so impactful on my small business. We sell wholesale plush Jesus and Mary dolls. When I went to CMN, I had retailers representing my products in only two states. Since attending CMN trade show, I’m now in retailers in 19 states! Thank you for your work to lift up our faith and give us a space to connect. It was one of the best event I’ve attended!!Jennifer Angelle-Hugs From Heaven
