Are trade show or convention participants required to obtain a State Business License?
A person or governmental entity that operates a facility where exhibitions are held is responsible for paying the license fee for persons who exhibit but do not have a State Business License because they are not located in Nevada. Trade shows, conventions, craft shows, sporting events or similar events involving the exhibition of property, products, goods, services or athletic or physical skill are considered “exhibitions.”
The operator of the facility may elect to pay an annual license fee of $5000 for all events held that fiscal year or remit on a quarterly basis $1.25 per day for each business, for each event held at the facility. The Department of Taxation maintains the authority for the issuance of the license for operators of facilities where exhibitions are held. The statutory references are NRS 360.760 through 360.796.
