2019 CPE International Exhibit Hall Map

Wow! We are just a week away from the 2019 CPE International Show!

We always provide free training opportunities at the shows, and this one is no different. However, we did change the format a little.

Instead of a single big training session covering everything, we are going to split it into two shorter sessions.

If you are a new store owner or manager that hasn’t been trained on all the various features of BSMGR, we will spend an hour on a “Beginners Session” to answer questions and cover basics. This will also be a great opportunity for any new employee to get a basic understanding of how to use the software.

If you are a more seasoned user, we will have an “Advanced Session” where we will focus on a broader range of topics that you may have forgotten could be done for you in BSMGR.

—– Bookstore Manager Software Training Details —–
Sunday, August 25th, 2019
Private Dining Room B (in the Embassy Suites Hotel)
“Beginners Session” – 10:15 a.m. to 11:15 a.m.
“Advanced Session” – 11:45 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.

We will take a lunch break from 11:15 a.m. to 11:45 a.m. Everyone attending either session is welcome to join us for the buffet lunch.

If you have specific questions you’d like to have us include during the Advanced Session, please send those to Robbie@KingdomRetail.com.

Whether or not you are able to make it to a training session, we hope you drop by and say hi. We’ll be in Booth #128.

Thank you for your dedication in ministering God’s word to your community and everyone that visits your store!

We hope you are going — because we look forward to seeing you there!
