2017 Exhibitor Information 2017-07-12T07:31:01+00:00
We will be keeping an online calendar on the website with important dates and deadlines for CES and LIDT.

Be sure to check and update your official CES Exhibitor Listing.  This ensures that you will be listed in all printed and online exhibitor directories.  Joel’s previous email had your exhibitor log in and password information, if you do not have it, let us know.

Putting a direct phone number or email on your exhibitor listing on the CES website is a big help for outside vendors.

If you are a returning exhibitor, your logo and company description is already on the website, please check the logo and the listing to make sure it is correct. If you are a new exhibitor, please follow the link and the instructions at—– to upload the information. You may change the information at anytime but keep in mind it is not a direct access line. If you change information at anytime after it is uploaded to the website, please let Peter or I know and we will make sure the website is updated.

Over the course of the next 4 months we will be asking for information and assets as well as requesting information that we may share in our press releases and EDMs leading up to CES 2017.

We are also experimenting this year with a virtual press room. You may at anytime upload press releases to this site and we will post it in the newsfeed and follow up with social media.

If you are interested in capturing the contact information of your booth visitors, you can rent a badge reader from ITN International. The ordering information can be found here: Lead Retrieval Information. Discount Deadline: November 22
