Why are unlicensed guests limited in participation?

The Texas International Beauty & Wellness Expo is an expo for beauty professionals as well as the community. We have implemented a "Community Day" for unlicensed guest. There are certain areas that are industry specfic and you must be licensed or a student to participate. All attendees are required to be a licensed professional or salon/barber business owner to have access to Professional Classes and products. Our exhibitors rent booth space to have access to a certain type of customer. TIBWE allows unlicensed guests to attend, however, only professionals can purchase professional products. The armbands issued will differentiate the type of participant. There will be exhibitors that may sell to unlicensed guests but those products will likely be retail products.
