Exhibitor Frequently Asked Questions


1. I will be selling things at my booth. Do I need a California Seller's Permit?

Yes. If you intend to sell anything at your booth, California State law requires you to have in your possession a valid California Seller's Permit. You will need to provide a copy of your Seller's Permit to PMX Exhibits Staff. To obtain a Seller's Permit, visit the California State Board of Equalization (BOE) website or call them at (800) 400-7115.
Note: A Seller's Permit is required prior to making sales. Notify the BOE if you have an urgent need for one.

2. If I'm from another state or country, do I need a California Seller's Permit?

Yes. California State law requires anyone doing business in California, regardless of where you are from, even if it is for one day or a short time, to obtain a Seller's Permit. For more information, visit the California State Board of Equalization website or call them at (800) 400-7115.
Note: A Seller's Permit is required prior to making sales. Notify the BOE if you have an urgent need for one.

3. I will not be selling things at my booth. Do I need a California Seller's Permit?

No. However, we require that you submit to us a "Letter of Intent Not To Sell" stating that you will not be selling anything at your booth.
