Registration Numbers

Registration numbers are steadily climbing! ATA staff confirmed they’re receiving 30-35 new retail accounts per week. December is typically the busiest month for registration, so we expect to see numbers continue to increase. That said, the number of individuals who registered for the 2023 Show already surpassed the number of people who registered by the same time last year! As of Dec. 5, 411 retail companies have registered along with 454 exhibiting companies. Attendees will have over 152,000 square feet of booth space (and counting) to walk and explore!

The Show floor will be buzzing with people, products and excitement. Check out the floor plan to orient yourself before arriving in Indianapolis. Plus, you can determine where specific exhibitors are, so you can plan an efficient travel route.  You can view the floor plan on the ATA website or in the 2023 ATA mobile app!

Trade Show Happenings

Important Reminders

  • Day 1 is Buyer Day: Buyer Day, dedicated specifically to verified buyers and exhibitors, kicks off the Show on Wednesday, Jan. 11. The buyers have the floor to themselves, which allows plenty of opportunities to conduct business and network with the exhibitors. All other badge types, including press, media, supporting and nonprofit members, state agency representatives and nonexhibiting manufacturers, can access the Show floor on Days 2 and 3, Thursday and Friday.
  • Download the Mobile App: Use the ATA’s free mobile app to start planning your trip to #ATA2023. The app features tools that will help you stay organized and informed throughout the Show.
  • Bring Your Express Pass Code: Print your registration confirmation email or save it to your phone and bring it to the Show. You’ll need to scan the QR code at an express pass kiosk in Indianapolis to print your badge.
