How do you find trade show events?

We are looking to find information on Trade Shows/events around a particular industry. How do we go about finding a list of such shows in the US and overseas? (this could be around consumer or commercial products).

Usually, trade shows are industry specific.

One tip off the top of my head is that the top publications will, between a handful of them, ask have ads for the top trade shows. (you can't rely on any one publication because of various feuds that inevitably crop up over the years).

You can also reverse engineer it by looking up relevant companies and finding out where they show.

I used to market these things, so I've got a bunch of tips, but I'm on my phone right now. I'll try to remember to come back when I'm on my computer, or you can memail if you want to share an industry and get specifics.
