First, contact the seller if at all possible and find out what the main diet was.

Make sure your temps and humidity are in good order. Dehydration is common at shows.

Make sure the gecko is in a quiet and dark place. There was a lot of stress involved with the show and the transport and then getting dumped into a new enclosure and home. Right now, the gecko needs time to adjust and explore. The less noise and activity and light around it the better for the first week.

It has only been...3 days, so assuming an older juvi or an adult there is nothing to worry about right this moment. Most likely this is just a stress response. Find out the food it is used to and provide a dish of that or CGD at all times. I would avoid prey items until the gecko is settled as that has a small risk of adding more stress. Other than that, leave the gecko alone and I'm sure it'll be up and eating by the end of the week.

If not, post again, we have many tricks to try after simple stress is ruled out.
