Riddle Me This: Wholesalers and suppliers hang out here. Amazon sellers like you love me and want to chill here, I’m filled with so many products to touch and feel. There is much to see and do. I’m a confidence booster, connection center and all your wholesale needs are fulfilled here. It’s clear that the answer is___.

Hey hey friends, it’s Kristin. I am so glad you’re here.

I’m sure many of you guessed the answer to the riddle from reading the title of the post… And yes the answer is TRADESHOWS. 

Tradeshows have wholesalers and suppliers from all over the US and some even have international countries represented. They are filled with so many products so you can touch and feel the quality of them. Plus, tradeshows are great to boost your seller confidence, make endless amounts of lifetime connections and fulfill all of your wholesale needs. 

I LOVE tradeshows for scoring winning wholesale products! 

So if you’re saying to yourself, “I’m brand new to Amazon FBA and also brand new to wholesale, how do I find suppliers?”

Tradeshows are the best place for new Amazon FBA business owners and also those brand new to wholesale to make connections and find wholesalers, suppliers, and distributors that are willing and easy to work with. 

It is your one-stop-shop for all your wholesale bundle needs!

Yes, you can Google search “wholesaler near me” or “wholesaler for Amazon sellers”...

But, you end up spending endless hours of research and run the risk of falling prey to scams. 😱

No one has that time, we’re business owners and we only have time to be productive, make money and reach our freedom and desires.

So don’t worry because today, I am going to tell you all about the best event ever created for Amazon FBA business owners like you and me - TRADESHOWS. I’ll explain why you should attend a tradeshow and the benefits of attending a tradeshow, and an option you can take advantage of if you do not want to walk your first tradeshow on your own. 

There’s no doubt that tradeshows are insanely powerful! And I’m sure you know how vital it is for you to make superb connections with top-of-the-line wholesalers that will boost your Amazon business.

So here are 3 key reasons to attend a tradeshow…

#1 Product Quality Control
#2 Get Questions Answered in Real-Time
As a beginner, you will want to ask the wholesaler or supplier questions such as…

  • What are the minimum orders allowed?
  • Is Amazon reselling allowed?
  • Can you bundle products?
  • Do you have free shipping?
  • Do you have holiday dating?

#3 Make Connections & Build your wholesale network

  • You can find legit wholesale suppliers without worrying if it’s a scam. 
  • Find wholesalers willing to create custom bundles just for you.

Are you feeling the tradeshow vibe yet? Are you desiring to attend a tradeshow this year?


The #1 tradeshow I recommend for all new Amazon FBA business owners & Wholesale beginners is…

The ASD Tradeshow!

This tradeshow is by far my favorite tradeshow for beginners. Why???  3 Reasons

Because they are very Amazon friendly. Most of the suppliers at the ASD tradeshow that I have ever encountered are Amazon friendly and they’ll let you use their products to sell on Amazon - they’ll let you bundle.

My favorite section to always visit at the ASD tradeshow is their SOURCE DIRECT section. 

Source direct hosts many international wholesalers and distributors mainly from China & India. These manufacturers come to the tradeshow with sample products and are able to make you custom packages - basically helping you enter into the world of white-labeling and private labeling. 

The ASD tradeshows are great for beginners because they do not have tons of restrictions as others do. In other tradeshows, they require you to show a minimum of $10,000 of invoices from other wholesale purchases…. Well if you’re new that’s really hard to do. 

And the best part about attending the ASD tradeshow… it’s completely free. 

All you need to do is show your resellers license and they’ll let you in the door without charging you a fee.

ASD host educational seminars so if you didn’t want to spend the whole time shopping around and instead learn and gain different skill while you’re there… why not, it’s free so take advantage of it. 

And the ASD tradeshow is not just over the weekend, it runs from Sunday through Wednesday making travel accommodations more price effective and friendly. 

I, Kristin Ostrander, will be hosting a workshop with the bonus of the ASD tradeshow walkthrough so if you’re new and don’t want to walk the tradeshow on your own and instead would like some clarity, guidance, and a weekend full of exponential growth opportunities, don’t hesitate register today!
