Examples of associate members include consultants, investment firms and analysts. A U.S. or Canada business location is required.

Retailer/Integrator Member

If your company sells or installs consumer electronics -- via traditional showroom, over the Web, or through custom installation -- your home in CEA begins with a retailer/integrator membership. This membership category allows you to get involved with any of CEA's divisions, including TechHome, Audio-Video Retailer Division and others. U.S. or Canada business location is required.

International Affiliate Member

Our international affiliate membership category is an introductory level for international companies interested in learning more about the U.S. CE market and establishing a U.S. location.
*International companies with a U.S. or Canada office should apply for regular membership.

If your company is in development of a technology product, service or app that has been introduced into the market within the last year or will be within the next year, has annual sales under $1 million, is located in North America, and has not been a CEA member within the past two years then you can begin with a Startup membership.
