Product Sourcing Made Easy...
If you sell online or plan to, then mark off your calendar for August 10-13 in Las Vegas. The ASD/AMD is presenting the country’s largest trade shows at the Sands Expo Center and the Las Vegas Convention Center once again.
For you, as an online retailer, these shows provide a tremendous opportunity. You won’t find another event with such a vast selection of products, such diverse price points, or so many qualified exhibitors catering to every kind of retail buyer. Over 3,500 legitimate suppliers will represent thousands of product lines and millions of products.
If the idea of so many choices spread across such enormous venues sounds overwhelming, don’t stress. Dedicated floor sections will help you easily find the products you’re interested in.
No matter what product market you sell in, you can almost certainly find merchandise there that will appeal to your target buyers. The following are just a few examples of the many market categories these trade shows serve:
• baby products
• electronics and accessories
• military supplies
• sporting goods
If you sell jewelry, you’ll find an entire show devoted to your product category at the Mirage. For variety and novelty products, the Sands Expo Center is the place to go.
On the other hand, maybe you’re more interested in finding discount and closeout merchandise to resell. If that’s the case, you’ll want to check out the suppliers at the Las Vegas Convention Center. This is also where you’ll go to meet many international manufacturers and see the top 100 brands directly out of China. Thanks to the Source Direct Show and the China Brand show, you don’t even need to travel to a foreign destination to meet the suppliers you need to begin importing.
The bottom line is: this is a chance for you to find thousands of genuine wholesale suppliers and manufacturers, from every corner of the country and the world, in one location, and a way for you to greatly limit the time and expense involved in tracking down new products and product sources. You’ll be able to see what’s happening in your product market and where that market is headed, so you can be sure that your own e-business is headed in the right direction.
Worldwide Brands will be in attendance, and will be offering three key educational seminars for both online retailers and wholesale suppliers. These will be held in the Sands Expo Center, Room 107:
