A listing of buying and selling wholesale trade shows and directories. Trade shows are a valuable way to meet buyers and suppliers.
I’ll be frank. I imagined this post to be a listing of all the selling shows and buying shows relevant for wholesalers, organized by category, country and dates.
I quickly learned that this would take weeks, maybe months, and keeping it updated would be a full-time job!
There are countless trade shows for all different product categories. And it is foolish for me to re-do all the work that others have already done. So instead, here is a link to the directory sites that are doing the work.
- BizTradeShows is a huge database of trade shows for every industry. You will find buying and selling shows here. It is searchable, browseable and updated regularly. Great resource.
- M+A Expo Database is similar to the above but organized a little differently.
- Greatrep.com focuses mostly on selling shows in North America. Most seem to be in gifts.
- WholesaleCentral and Goodridge Guides have listings for selling shows for various product lines in USA and Canada.
- The Wholesaler lists shows in the UK.
Please comment if you have more to add to this list.
