      Are trade shows a good way to source dropshippers?

      I am brand new to dropshipping and looking to increase my business profits. I have read many reviews on this subject, but none have said anything about trade shows. Can someone please confirm for me whether they are beneficial to someone looking to drop ship?

      I am surprised you have not come across any reviews about dropshipping and trade shows. There is no question that the latter definitely helps dropshippers increase their business potential. At trade shows, dropshippers can

      1. Source goods

      2. Connect with wholesalers and manufacturers

      3. Expand their product lines

      I have found so many suppliers who let me dropship with them by going to trade shows. I definitely recommend them for dropshippers.

      Visiting trade shows lets you view products before you dropship them because many vendors will be set up. Then you can personally ensure that the goods you are selling are quality.

      Sometimes you do not even have to attend a trade show. Instead, look on the trade show’s website to see what wholesalers and distributors will be in attendance. Go to those suppliers’ websites and look at their goods. This will give you a good idea of whether or not you want to dropship those goods.
