Selling on Amazon can be daunting, especially for beginners. One good way to gain more understanding and insights on how to successfully sell on Amazon is to attend trade shows. Trade shows are a good way to meet vendors, find out the latest trends, and source new products to sell. It also gives you the chance to scout out your competition so you can get ahead of the game.
There are plenty of trade shows that are held year-round. You can choose from among the best trade shows to be your venue for learning and establishing your network. Here are a few of the larger e-commerce workshops and shows to consider.

The Prosper Show
Held this year on March 13 to 14 in Las Vegas, Nevada, the Prosper Show is one of the few e-commerce conferences that is held exclusively to Amazon vendors.
