Illinois Sales Tax Information
The NSCC Board of Directors thanks all our dealers for helping to make the National a tremendous success. Because of your participation, the event has grown dramatically over the last several years. Recently, a trend has developed which impacts the continuing success of the National. On Sunday many exhibitors have violated the section of the booth agreement regarding dismantling booths and moving out during show hours on Sunday or before. As a result, attendees have objected and complained that they have not been able to experience a full show despite paying a full admission fee on Sunday. Dealers who have chosen to remain set up until show closing are impacted as well.
Going forward, exhibitors whose booths are not open for business at 3PM on Sunday of the National will lose 5 priority points. They will then have to select their booth with the new priority group. Ex: If you are a Priority 25, but are not set up on Sunday, August 2 at 3PM in 2020, you will be allowed to select booth space for the 2022 Cleveland National with the Priority 20 group . This will be for one year only unless a similar infraction occurs the following year.
