CEDIA Exhibitor Priority Points Policy

CEDIA Show Management has created policies on the accumulation and use of priority points for the CEDIA show. The total number of points accumulated by each CEDIA exhibitor through the below listed opportunities determines the exhibitor’s priority points. Priority points are used by CEDIA Show Management to assign booth space and hotel selection order for the following year’s tradeshow.

Companies that have exhibited at CEDIA at any time from 1989 to present are ranked according to accumulated priority points. All points are kept on file with CEDIA Show Management and updated as exhibitor changes occur. Priority point standings are made available at least 90 days prior to the tradeshow online here.

Exhibiting companies accrue priority points for the CEDIA show through any of the following activities:
Membership  1 point for each year of membership (only if exhibiting the same calendar year)

*These points are not given to trade agreements as of CEDIA 2014.
