2020 Space Selection

Plan Ahead

Space Selection

Start your planning now for the 2020 NAB Show.

The 2020 NAB Show Space Selection process is beginning soon!

Leading into the 2019 NAB Show, NAB starts the 2019 Space Selection process by assigning current Exhibitors with their own unique appointment based on their Priority Point ranking.


500 appointments are held Pre-Show, via phone appointments. The remaining appointments are held Onsite, via in person appointments in N261.

Your Appointment

Each exhibitor’s assigned appointment window will be sent via email to your Exhibit Logistics Contact. Appointments will be sent in March. If it is still February and you haven’t received an email with your assigned appointment window, do not panic.

If your Exhibit Logistics Contact needs to be updated, email the Exhibit Sales Team.

Under this new plan, you enjoy:

  • UNLIMITED Material Handling -- Exhibit the way you need to. It's no longer cost prohibitive.
  • Predictable & Simple to Budget Rates -- No surcharges. No surprise fees. Simple to calculate.
  • An Easier Experience -- No more lugging materials yourself to avoid costs.
