How on earth do you find all those new products that people have poured all their hard earned cash into to get developed, and are now looking for distributors?

There has to be thousands of the things out there, but how do you find them?

Anyone know of a site where these guys are listing for distributor interest?

Yeah they go to trade shows and look for the next big thing, I'm going out there next year for 6 weeks to do just that! There are a couple of websites that specialize in this sort of thing, I will PM them to you Fudjj :)

Cheers guys, and thanks for the links bevsey, but trade shows feature products that already have backing, I was thinking of the smaller creators.

The guys that have exhausted their resources and find themselves caught between a rock and a hard place trying to line up a distributor.

Not interested in the next big thing as such, more interested in the things that aren't getting all the attention and struggling for market traction, things that are still relatively hidden under the carpet for the most part : )

I don't quite get it! You want a website of products that not many people know about? Or are you after a product that you can take on and make it great? Looking to become a distributor? Or looking for the smaller little inventors who come up with some good stuff?

Like on Dragons Den for example?
