Many trade shows now have web sites. This is good for consumers because it gives them a chance to see what will be available at the shows they want to attend. There is much more information the public can find at these web sites. Most trade shows tours list all their calendar dates and locations. A person that lives in a location between two shows can choose which one is more convenient to attend. Consumers will also be able to see where and when the final show is on the tour.
Knowing the final date on the tour is important for consumers that want to purchase goods at a reduced cost. Many vendors will discount their wares at the last trade show in order to avoid the trouble of bringing them back to the warehouse. If the tour is continuing to another city, vendors will still need to have items in stock to sell at the next show. The discounts will not be as good as the very last show of the tour.
