Sales Tax, Laws & Facility Policies

How do I handle sales taxes?

Temporary Virginia Retail Sales Tax Forms and Sales Tax Charts will be distributed to all exhibitors at Registration. Virginia State Retail Sales Tax is applicable to all sales. The current tax rate is 5% of the retail price. Each exhibitor is responsible for recording, collecting and paying current Virginia sales taxes on all sales made during the show.

Do I need a Business License or any other special permits?

A Business License is not required to conduct business in these show facilities. All pertinent fire codes, laws, ordinances and regulations pertaining to health, fire prevention and public safety shall be strictly obeyed and enforced.

Will I need a health permit to serve food samples?

All food vendors must be approved by the Convention/Expo Center and must comply with local Health Department regulations. Forms will be mailed directly to all food vendors.

Can I bring my pet?

Unfortunately, all of the facilities we use have a no pets policy. Sorry! See our Exhibitor Guides for quality kennels in the area. We also try to have at least one pet-friendly hotel as one of our host hotels.
