After the success of last year’s exhibitor pitch competition, we are bringing it back and better than ever! This year’s competition will be fast-paced, light-hearted and fun!

Up to 10 finalists will be selected to pitch their products and services for two minutes each on the Show’s Live Stage in Las Vegas to a panel of judges and Show attendees. This is a great opportunity for exhibitors to showcase their company in front of a live audience of attendees and thousands of others watching on the livestream of the event. After each pitch is made, finalists will have up to two minutes of Q&A from the judges.

Prepare for possible disruptions, like buzzers and off-the-cuff commentary from the judges!

Exhibitors must submit a one-minute audio file that teases their product or service, their overall pitch strategy, and what the audience can expect from their pitch. Submitting an audio file does not guarantee that you will be selected as one of the finalists who will compete for the Grand Prize on February 2, 2024.

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

One Grand Prize winner will be selected from the group of finalists at the conclusion of the finalist pitches on February 2. The Grand Prize winner will receive a 30-minute Live Stage segment later during NADA Show 2024. The winner also will get editorial and social media coverage on NADA’s digital platforms, bragging rights, and the second trophy in what we hope will continue to be a recurring event for years to come.

Exhibitors who wish to be considered as finalists for the on-stage pitch competition must submit their one-minute audio file by November 17. Entrants will be informed if they have been selected as finalists on or about December 1.

Entrants must agree to be bound by the Official Contest Rules. The competition will take place February 2, 2024, at the NADA Show 2024 Live Stage at the Las Vegas Convention Center in Las Vegas.

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.
