Organisers of the upcoming Christian Resources Exhibition North are looking to expand after exhibition space sold out.
The sell-out success is good news for the CRE, which is returning to the north-west after nine years.
The exhibition, often dubbed 'the ideal church show', is taking place for the first time Manchester's Event City.
"We are delighted to return to the region," said Paul Trott, head of marketing for CRE's parent company, Bible Society.
"The response from exhibitors has been terrific and we are increasing the floor area to provide extra space for a number of new stands.
"It has been encouraging to bring the event to Manchester after two highly-successful regional shows in Peterborough and Exeter.
"Whether they are displaying photo-copiers or communion wine, retreat centres or sound systems, our exhibitors are discovering vital new contacts, many of whom have never before been to a CRE.
"Providing innovative new resources for churches of all traditions is what the show is all about."
CRE North will feature more than 150 charities, missions and church suppliers when it takes place in Manchester on 10 and 11 October.
