Exhibitor Manual

Dear Exhibitors,

We appreciate your participation in the upcoming 2024 New York International Automobile Show.

We have compiled this Exhibitor Manual to assist you in the preparation, installation, running, and removal of your exhibit at the Show. Detailed information is included to facilitate your set-up, including order forms for any services or materials you may need. Please complete appropriate forms for your various needs and return them to suppliers as soon as possible to take full advantage of advance order discounts. This, too, will ensure timely fulfillment of each service and/or material order as well as the preparation of credentials for your staff working within your exhibit.

If there are any instructions that are unclear or if you have any specific challenge not covered in this Exhibitor Manual, please contact me or any member of our Auto Show Team via e-mail or phone.

Thank you, and we look forward to seeing you at the 2024 New York International Auto Show!

Contact Update Forms for OEMs

Exhibitor Badge Registration

The New York International Auto Show is going digital! NO BADGES will be printed on-site. Exhibitor personnel will receive their digital badge via e-mail.

Key Contact(s) has two options within the Group Registration Portal (GRP):

  1. Enter a unique e-mail address for each person working at the Auto Show. Their digital badge will be sent directly to each individual from the GRP.
    • Please NOTE: some corporate servers have firewalls that block e-mails from unknown sources. Be sure that your system will allow receipt of e-mails from NYIAS 2024 Registration (nyauto24-reg@cteusa.com).
    • Otherwise, use a personal e-mail address that goes to a recognizable account. For example, to accounts ending with: @aol.com, @gmail.com, @icloud.com, @verizon.net, etc.
  2. Enter one e-mail (preferably, their own) for everyone. The Key Contact takes responsibility for distributing each person’s digital badge to them. Digital badges can be re-sent by the Key Contact if lost or accidentally deleted.

All digital badges will come from “NYIAS 2024 Registration (nyauto24-reg@cteusa.com)”. Be sure to check your SPAM/JUNK folder if you cannot find it in your In-Box.

Digital badges will be scanned at the Exhibitor/Show Entrance each time your personnel enter.


No Badges will be mailed/printed on-site. ALL badges will be digital and sent to each individual by their respective Key Contact. 

  • If the Key Contact will be attending the Show, make sure that you enter your Key Contact name as one of your registered personnel with corresponding badge type. Key Contacts do not automatically get a badge.
  • You can enter your group of personnel using this Portal. You will be able to enter/remove/edit people on your list throughout the Show.
  • Each person will be issued ONE badge for access for all days that the badge is valid. A person registered for Exhibitor access will receive one badge that they can use throughout the Show. Industry personnel and executives who will only be there on Media & Industry Days will be issued an Industry badge that is valid March 27 & 28 ONLY and will expire at 5 p.m. on March 28. Please read Badge Type descriptions carefully for specific access information.
  • You will NOT be able to delete a person’s registration once a badge has been e-mailed to that person. Please be sure to confirm each person’s attendance/role at the Show before e-mailing their badge.
  • Badges are specific to each individual. Exhibitor personnel will need to show a photo ID as they enter the Show each day. This is to make sure that the name on the badge matches the name on the ID. Digital badges will be scanned at the Exhibitor/Show Entrance each time your personnel enter.
  • You (as Key Contact) will designate the dates that the badge will be valid for each person. Your choices will be listed in the Portal with a detailed description of each. When you enter a name, you will choose from a list of access options. Please review the information before selecting a badge type.
  • Exhibitor – Manufacturer (valid ALL days) is limited to 75 badges per space from all sources (i.e., Key Contacts, EACs, Marketing agencies, product specialists, etc.).
  • Exhibitor – Non-Manufacturer (valid ALL days) is limited to 15 badges per space from all sources (Key Contacts, temporary staff, specialists, etc.).
  • The Portal keeps a count of how many Exhibitor codes have been used so you can easily keep track. In the Portal, if there are multiple Key Contacts drawing from that same allotment, you will be able to see a list of all people who are using your company’s allotment and who submitted each name. This is to help avoid duplication.
  • Each person will only need ONE digital badge. There is no need to register separately for Media & Industry Days and Exhibitor… just choose the badge type that applies to each person.
