Permit and Sales Tax: The state of Iowa requires that all dealers collect and remit sales tax on dealer table purchases. If you do not have a sales tax permit you may get a temporary permit by contacting the Iowa Department of Revenue. Please have your tax permit with you during the convention as you will be asked to provide this information.

Display: Please display any adult-themed merchandise in a tasteful manner.

Safety: No open flames allowed (e.g. no burning of candles, incense, illudim 348, lit canons, etc.). Do not “flow” your merchandise and displays into the aisles or other dealer spaces.

Sound: Music and Video are permitted in your dealer area. However, please keep the sound to a volume that does not annoy your neighbors. If it is too loud, you will be asked to turn it down.

Food Vending: Dealers cannot sell food items because of hotel regulations on corkage and food vending.
