For a convention/trade show, is it possible for a distributor to purchase their own beer and send in for exhibition and demonstration purposes solely i.e. 2oz pour. 

This falls under the standard tasting sampling rule.  This is acceptable as long as the distributor takes the unused product back after the sampling is completed.
