Policy on free samples at the 85th Annual Convention & International Trade Show:
Under FDA’s policy, it is permissible for a business to distribute free samples in a limited quantity (i.e., no more than necessary to achieve a business or marketing goal, such as awareness of and exposure to the product for the purposes of product or inventory selection) to another business as part of a genuine effort to sell or market a tobacco product to that business. Distribution to consumers during the trade show is prohibited. We expect all attendees to adhere to this policy.
