Wholesale Trade Show Calendar

If you want to find products to sell on eBay, Amazon of from your website, wholesale trade shows are one of the best places to find new products. These trade shows are held all year around in almost every major city and many smaller cities in America and Canada –and there are even many foreign trade shows. Just think, you can attend a trade show in Hong Kong, Rome or Paris and write it off as a business trip against your taxes.

Here is a calendar of popular trade shows for the year 2008. If you want to attend one in 2009 or 2010, use the contact information (website or phone number) for the 2008 show. These shows are always held the same time of year. Most of them are always in the same location, but some of them like the National Hardware Show do move around. Call or check the website and they will be able to give you exact dates and locations.

Most of the web sites have a link to pre-register. You should always do this as it saves time getting into the show and it makes you eligible for some hotel and travel savings deals.

I have marked some of the more important shows for eBay sellers in red.
