EXHIBITOR/SELLER SPACE ASSIGNMENT
The method of determining space assignment is not an exact science. Official Sponsors and Partners of the UTV World Championship are given first choice of space, then we use the date of your signup and size needs to determine placement. There are no carry over rights from previous years or “reserved” spaces. We do our best each year to accommodate all requests and carefully place each exhibitor/seller in the best possible location. Remember – we are all guests of the City of Laughlin and as such we must conduct ourselves professionally at all times. Please help us by keeping your space clean, free from clutter, and lend a hand to your fellow exhibitors and sellers if necessary.

I want to be next to a specific exhibitor.  Can you place us together?
If you wish to be placed next to a specific exhibitor, please note so during the checkout process. This does not guarantee that you will be placed next to each other. We will try our best to accommodate all requests, but we cannot guarantee exact placement.

I don’t want to be placed next to a specific exhibitors or seller.  What do I do?
We are hip to this.  We will do our best not to place two exhibitors selling similar products next to each other. Don’t be afraid to reach out to us to discuss. We try to make everyone happy.

What if my layout/size of space changes?
If your layout changes after you book with us, please contact us right away to update your layout space. If you arrive to move in with more space than reserved, you may be charged additional fees onsite.

When is load in and out for placement?
Israel Stone will contact you with your scheduled load in/out times.

I want to make the most of my contingency experience.  How can I stand out and increase my sales?
The UTVWC Off-road Festival is all about activation.  Promoting your presence at contingency before and during the event is crucial.  We suggest creating an interactive experience for UTVWC race fans including giveaways, raffles, contests, coupons, games or anything else that will attract people to your booth.  TV screens and music are allowed, provided they are at a nominal volume and don’t disturb the exhibitors next to you.

Are there any items I am not allowed to sell at contingency?
Prepared food, beverages (including alcohol), fireworks, firearms, weapons of any kind, materials of adult nature or any items prohibited by state and local law are prohibited from being sold at the UTVWC Off-road Festival.

I am selling goods.  Do I need to pay Nevada state sales tax?
YES. All Sellers MUST collect 8.25% in taxes. You must issue a payment in the form of a business check or money order for the total tax amount collected to The Nevada Department of Taxation. Your tax payment and tax forms must be mailed to The UTVWC (29755 Kirsten Ln, Vista CA 92084) using the provided self addressed stamped envelope no later than Monday April 15th. Please do NOT send the payment directly to the State. The UTVWC is required by law to collect the tax payments and send them in together. Failure to accurately report and make your tax payments mail result in further action by the Nevada Department of Taxation. You will receive a “One Time Sales Tax Form” onsite from Israel Stone as part of your check in process.

No.  Exhibiting/Selling on race day is only available to those who Exhibit/sell at Tech & Contingnecy on Friday, April 5th.
