Publication Distribution

Distribution of printed publications onsite is a great way to build readership and reinforce your value to advertisers. NAB Show New York only offers onsite distribution of regularly printed publications in exchange for pre-show print advertising inserted in the publication to be distributed. Print ads must run prior to October 15.

For the Partner's benefit, this is a turnkey opportunity - we recognize the increasing costs to print and ship additional copies for onsite distribution, and that is why we work to make it as easy and valuable as possible. All Partners need to do is ship materials as instructed and we do the rest to ensure that your publications are available throughout the event.

It is recommended you send a minimum of 500 - 1,000 issues to ensure adequate inventory to stock your publication bin throughout the duration of the event. Once your inventory is gone, the bin will be removed. All Media Partners are required to complete the online form and accept distribution policies in order to receive shipping labels. All shipments to NAB Show New York must use official Show labels.

Booths are bartered in 10' x 10' and 10' x 20' sizes and include carpet, standard furnishing package and a hanging sign. Booth comes with standard furniture only and additional furnishings can be ordered from Freeman at partner's expense.

Onsite Cover Wall

Don't want to send printed publications for distribution - or don't have a printed pub to give out? No worries! Get great exposure on the cover wall located in the show Rgistration area near the escalators to the show floor. Instead of taking a printed copy of your publication with them, Attendees scan your unique QR code presented on signage with a large cover image. This is a great vehicle to make a special on-site subscription offer or execute a fun promotion at the weblink associated with the QR code.

  • Cover artwork/image is presented at 18" x 24".
  • Media Partner provides artwork and QR code only, NAB Show New York does the rest!
