    Im trying to start a wholesale business,

    i want to go to tradeshows one day and purchase wholesale products.

    Anyone know where i can start?

    As i am aware, i would need a DBA and a Reseller's certificate?

    Maybe you should see if you can make it doing a drop shipping type of service before becoming a full scale wholesaler.

    That would depend on the trade show . . . Is there a specific trade show or sector that interests you?

    i was hoping to get into the Fitness, apparel , or consumer electronics trade shows.

    I was told you need a reseller's certificate?

    Thanks in advance for the help.

    Assuming you're the US, you can just setup a sole-proprietorship or LLC or S Corporation, and then get a resale certificate from your state government. Shouldn't cost more than a few hundred bucks. Why don't you identify a few trade shows that interest you, and just contact the organizers to see what they require for entry?
