9 Awards programs to nominate for including Best Booth Design of 2020
WHY YOU SHOULD APPLY
Each year hundreds of new products are submitted by convention exhibitors, many of whom tell us they like the fact that the program allows vendors to tell our judges exactly which products they want to be considered, and why, from among thousands on display at NAB. Your full page in our post-show Program Guide alone is worth the cost of nomination.
You may submit a product for consideration by one or more of these publications, and you may submit multiple products. Awards for Booth Design will be given by Future U.S. at large.
INCREASE SHOW AWARENESS
You'll receive a "Nominee" logo right away to display in your booth and social media marketing, to help increase pre-show and on-floor awareness of your product.
REACH OUR VALUED READERS
Every nominated product - not just the winners - gets a full page of coverage in our post-show Program Guide, distributed to 95,000+ readers of our participating brands.
BOOST YOUR BRAND
Winners are reported by our industry leading brands. We'll provide winners with marketing assets and award hardware to help leverage and promote your victory to stakeholders.
ENTRY DEADLINE: Friday April 3, 2020
Thousands of new products are introduced at the NAB Show each year. Help make yours stand out. You'll receive a "Nominee" logo to display in your booth and social media. If you win, you'll receive an award and an information package to help you promote the win to the industry. Further, every product and booth nominated, whether chosen for an award or not, will be featured in the special Best of Show Program Guide, to be distributed in eBook digital form after the convention to more than 95,000+ Future publication readers.

Friday April 3, 2020. We reserve the right to consider late applicants as circumstances dictate. Please note that on-site nominations are not accepted.
It should be new since last NAB. A product need not be introduced literally at this show; you might for instance have shown a product some months prior at AES or IBC. Judges are instructed to consider if it’s “new to the NAB Show.”
Judges also have discretion in determining whether a product is new, and in general, we lean toward including, not rejecting. But if a product was shown in the same form at last year’s convention it is not eligible. (If you showed it last NAB in preview form, it may raise questions for judges; include an explanation in your nomination; for instance, “We showed this in beta last year but did not nominate it, and now it is shipping.” Of course, if you nominated it last year, it’s hard to make the case it’s new.)
Yes. A product may be nominated by an exhibitor other than its manufacturer (e.g., a distributor/dealer), as long as the manufacturer is aware and the product is only nominated once per Future brand. Please make this clear in the nomination text, as: “The Acme 1000 Rocket, made by Acme and nominated by dealer Coyote Products…”
