CES is a trade-only event for individuals 18 years of age or older and affiliated with the consumer technology industry. CES is not open to the general public.

To attend CES, you must submit your business credentials in advance so that the Consumer Technology Association (CTA)™, the host of CES, may verify your affiliation with the consumer technology industry.

  • Business card that matches the name of the company you are representing

Registration Process for Exhibitor Coordinators

With the following process, exhibitor coordinators still have control over the badge allotment, but individual exhibitor personnel can provide their own personal details.

Exhibitor coordinators will receive an email prior to registration opening with login information.

You will have two options to register your exhibitor personnel.

1. If you are able to provide all personal details for your exhibitor personnel, including date of birth, you may register them in full and will receive a confirmation email.

All individuals will also receive a confirmation email that they have been registered and will have the ability to access their personal record and the option to upload a headshot photo for their badge ID.

2. If you are unable to provide all personal details for your exhibitor personnel, you may simply enter their first name, last name and unique email address to start the process.

All individuals will then receive an email asking them to complete their personal details. After personal details are added, registration is complete and both individuals and the exhibitor coordinator will receive a final confirmation email.
