Industry events, conferences and trade show finder tools can be easily researched by accessing a number of websites that provide extensive event database listings and resources for exhibitors (see list below).
Nearly every major market around the globe hosts shows of significant size each year for specific organizations, causes and industries. Often convention centers in these areas have facilities to book multiple exhibitions nearly every week, which draw visitors/buyers from the near and far.
Events featuring exhibitions and trade show displays represent big business for metropolitan areas that seek to utilize convention and conference facilities. In addition, hosting shows promotes incremental spending in markets and enhances a city's image.
To find trade fairs and events in a given industry, contact trade associations and related professional organizations that can provide you with a comprehensive list of events, locations and dates.
If you prefer to identify specific markets in which to exhibit, get in touch with area chambers of commerce or convention and visitors’ bureaus to locate upcoming events in a particular area.
