God, maybe 10 years ago they were running stings on them at the Miami gun show. So it was definitely being enforced.

To my recollection Miami-Dade, Broward, Palm Beach and and at least one Central Florida county have these rules. Government-as-landlord has leeway not allowed to government-as-government.
Orange County home of the tourist trap, Orlando fun show mandates UBC.
Contrary to popular opinion, the fairgrounds aren't owned by the government. The property is owned by a non-profit corporation, The Central Florida Fair, Inc. The property is not "public" so I am pretty sure the county ordinance is not enforceable. I'm pretty sure the owner of the gun show doesn't mind restricting private sales. Especially since he is also the largest participant in the show and private sales are competition.

That being said, I don't want to be the test case.
Private sales at the show are not restricted. They are allowed. The seller, & buyer simply go to any FFL at the show, & ask them to transfer possession. This means the buyer fills out a 4473, & a BG check is done. This is clearly explained to all FFL’s on Saturday morning before the show opens. GARY.

uhm, requiring an FFL to participate is the restriction I was talking about.

Well then the seller, & buyer simply leave the show, & go down the street to the nearest Walmart parking lot to complete the transaction. The gun show promoter is simply following the rules set by the venue owners. GARY
