As a distributor, can I use display booths to sell my company’s products? Is there a limit on the time I can spend selling at a booth?

First, check the company policies, as they will be the guiding rule. Most companies allow distributors to operate a booth at trade shows that are for the general public, such as boat shows, home shows, health shows, etc. However, most companies ask that distributors seek approval of the booth opportunity and they also insist on compliance with proper use of the company trademark and advertising. In addition, most companies do not permit the sale of other company’s products or the promotion of other company business opportunities at the booth. The time limitation is generally governed by the length of the event.
