Trade Exhibition Definition

Trade exhibitions are the places where commercial goods and products are displayed. Trade exhibitions, in their modern sense, are periodical and regular. It is a marketing method for displaying products to sell directly or make deals, linking relationships and partnerships or even promoting and introducing products.

These exhibitions are organised by many entities with objectives, including stimulating market movements to gain new customers and benefit all.

The most important organisers of trade exhibitions are representatives of producer and corporate groups, governments, industrial and commercial chambers, international organisations, and various institutions.

Trade exhibitions come in several forms, classified according to several criteria, the most important of which are:

Trade exhibitions by geographic area:

  • Local Trade Exhibitions

They are organised in one country at the level of provinces and states

  • Regional Trade Exhibitions

They are organised within several countries with political relations and borders, such as the Middle East or European Trade Exhibition.

  • International Trade Exhibitions

It is an exhibition worldwide, organised by international organisations and institutions operating at a global level, and can be carried out by a particular State and hosted by other States through official invitations.

International trade exhibitions are usually held in an internationally designated and regular name, often annually, and hosted at each session by a different country that earns the honour of hosting it after an inter-state competition on which the exhibition's organising committee is based.

Trade exhibitions by item to be sold

They are exhibitions for special items or commodities, such as food exhibitions, defence exhibitions, weapons industries, technological industries and others. Besides, public trade exhibitions cover more than one specialised sector and thus display many different goods and services.
