Exhibitor Pitch Competition

people on stage speaking

Who: The Exhibitor Pitch Competition is open to all NADA Show 2024 Exhibitors.

What: Up to 10 finalists, selected from a larger pool of entrants, will have two minutes each on the Show’s Live Stage to pitch their products and services to a panel of judges and Show attendees.

Where: The Pitch Competition will take place on the Live Stage at the Las Vegas Convention Center in Las Vegas.

When: Exhibitors who wish to be considered as finalists for the on-stage pitch competition must submit a one-minute audio file by Nov. 17th. Entrants will be informed if they have been selected as finalists on or about Dec. 1st. The Exhibitor Pitch Competition will take place on the Live Stage on Friday February 2, 2024. One Grand Prize winner will be selected from the group of finalists at the conclusion of the finalist pitches on February 2nd. The Grand Prize winner will receive a 20-minute time slot to make a longer pitch on the Live Stage later during NADA Show 2024.

How: Entering the competition is free. Exhibitors must submit a one-minute audio file below that teases their product or service, their overall pitch strategy and what the audience can expect from their pitch. Submitting an audio file enters exhibitors into the competition but does not guarantee that they will be selected as one of the finalists who will compete for the Grand Prize on February 2, 2024.


The Pitch Competition will be a great opportunity for Show exhibitors to showcase their wares in front of a live audience of attendees and thousands of others watching on the livestream of the event. The Shark Tank-like competition will be fast-paced, informal, light-hearted and fun!

Judging criteria will be based on creativity, informational content, entertainment, succinctness, and overall value proposition.

In addition to a 20-minute time slot on the Live Stage to make a longer pitch, the Grand Prize winner also will receive editorial and social media coverage on NADA’s digital platforms, bragging rights, and a personalized trophy.

Entrants must agree to be bound by the Official Contest Rules

Entrants agree to hold harmless NADA and its affiliates for any comments made during the pitch competition, technical failures of any kind, or electronic/human errors that might occur throughout the duration of this competition. Read the full Contest Rules.
