Exhibition Facility Fee

Exhibition Facility Fee

Nevada businesses that participate in exhibitions, shows, or similar events are subject to facility Fees. These fees are paid based on the structure of the exhibition and the licensing status of the business.

The Nevada Exhibition Facility Fee is a charge applied to venues where exhibitions, shows, or events are held.

This fee is collected from event organizers or vendors and is intended to support the maintenance and improvement of the facilities used.

It ensures that these venues can continue to provide quality services for events that attract visitors and stimulate local economies.

Nevada offers two payment options for the fee, in an effort to accommodate the unique needs and circumstances of different businesses.

  • Annual Flat Rate: $5,000 per year.
  • Quarterly Fee Payment:
    • The quarterly fee is calculated based on the number of businesses participating in each exhibition that do not have a state business license.
    • This amount is then multiplied by the number of days the exhibition is held, and then multiplied by an additional $1.25 per day.

Who Pays the Fee?

  • Event organizers: Those who rent out the facilities for their events.
  • Vendors: Businesses that operate within the facilities during events.
