  • Badges will NOT be mailed. You must pick up your badge onsite during registration hours.
  • Registration is not open to the public.
  • Attendees are not permitted to bring cameras or videotaping equipment onto the show floor.

Age Requirement

You must be 18 years or older to register and attend. CEDIA reserves that right to refuse admittance to anyone under the age of 18. Proof of age is required on show site.

​Registration Instructions

Register online at cediashow.net — It’s easier, faster, and gives you more options! When you register, you will immediately receive:

  1. E-mail confirmation that your registration has been received
  2. Real-time lock-in of your classes and special event choices
  3. The ability to make changes to your registration
  4. A special registration confirmation number that will allow you to use the “fast track” badge pick up at any of our special offsite satellite registration stations or at San Diego Convention Center.

CEDIA Cancellation Policy

Registration for CEDIA 2017 is non-refundable. This includes trade show floor only passes, training passes, a la carte training, certification exams, and special events. However, registrants unable to attend may send a substitute by bringing the registrant’s confirmation letter to the onsite registration counters at the San Diego Convention Center to receive a badge for admission.


CEDIA Training & Certification Policy

You must register for each class you plan to attend. All sessions are on a first-come, first-served basis. If you are not on the class roster, you are not permitted in the classroom. Changes are permitted online or onsite to other sessions that are still available. Attendees may transfer to other eligible classes free of charge if utilizing the CEDIA Training Pass.

If you are more than 15 minutes late to a class, your seat is not guaranteed. After 15 minutes, you are considered a no-show and your seat may be given to a wait-listed individual. No refunds will be given for no-shows.

Course schedules are subject to change. If a course is cancelled, your fee for that course will be refunded at the time of the cancellation. If a change in the course schedule results in your inability to participate in a selected class, your fee for that course will be refunded.

No refunds will be issued due to conflicts with manufacturer product training or non-CEDIA sponsored events.
