Printer-Friendly Debuts Interactive Trade Show Calendar

Jun 16, 2016, the leading wholesale directory web site on the Internet, announces the launch of a fully interactive wholesale trade show calendar. "Wholesale Central has always focused on connecting buyers and suppliers by the best means possible," states Scott Sumner, CEO of Sumner Communications, and owner of "Our commitment to excellence and to providing the best possible service to the wholesale industry is unwavering. This new launch, which adds searchable features to our extensive annual calendar of wholesale trade shows, was a natural expansion." Specific new benefits for retailers and wholesale buyers include easy-to-use searches refined by show / merchandise type, as well as search results sorted by date range or show location. This powerful new interactive wholesale show calendar allows for quick and efficient information gathering for both buyers and sellers.

For the wholesale supplier, manufacturer, importer or drop shipper seeking shows at which to exhibit their wares, the calendar also proves effective. With just a few clicks or keystrokes, wholesalers may be served a list of upcoming shows at which they may rent booth space for future sales. Contact information connecting show management to both the buyers and sellers is listed on each detailed Show Profile results page.

"As always, we will continue to provide the support and services retailers and wholesalers need to succeed every day. Having this kind of a calendar at hand to allow buyers to plan future sourcing trips, and for suppliers to map out their most effective selling opportunities, is one more step in the right direction," says Lisa Rioni, Sumner CTO. "Going forward, our buyers and suppliers will continue to get the latest information in the constantly evolving wholesale trade show world."

"Our partnership with the huge range of wholesale trade shows is a vital one," says Sumner. "We look forward to adding new shows and additional features to the trade show calendar and the individual Show Profile pages in the coming weeks and months. The show calendar is constantly updated with the latest information available."
