The Wholesale trade shows are not open to the public – only qualified buyers can attend a trade show. So how does one become ‘qualified’ to attend a trade show?
Basically, you need to show Tax ID, Business Lic, Reseller permit and fill out registration before the show or at the show.. Each trade show will have a slightly different credential requirement, but they usually consist of showing your business license, a canceled business check, and copies of wholesale invoices.
We don’t have these requirements to keep people out, but we do want to make sure that only serious buyers are allowed in. They want to make sure your business is not only legitimate but an actual operating business. We do have other areas of the show for general buying
