You will be prompted to create a CTA/CES Account the first time you try to access a platform that requires you to sign in. You may also do so directly here.
If you are a CTA Member, please use the email address where you receive communications about CTA membership benefits.
Password Tip: When you create your account, passwords cannot contain your username – the system won’t accept it.
To check whether you have an existing CTA/CES Account, try creating a new account. If you get a message that says the user already exists, that email address is your CTA/CES Account username. You can then complete the password reset process to access your account, if needed, or sign in.
The username for your CTA/CES Account is the email address where you receive communications about CTA membership benefits or CES registration.
To set up a CTA/CES Account, you must have a unique and verifiable email address.
Tip: Double-check your email address when setting up your account. Due to security reasons we are unable to update email addresses. If you type an error in your email address during the account creating you must start over and create a new account.
Yes, if you attended CES 2023, you can use the same CTA/CES Account credentials for CES 2024 and beyond. You can also use that email address to access CTA Member benefits, if that username is where you receive communications about membership.
If you can't remember your password, click "I need help signing in" and then "Forgot password" to start the password reset process.
Note: The all-digital CES 2021 used a different sign-in process than other years. As a result, credentials may not match. If you created your account only for CES 2021, create a new account.
Navigate to the password reset page. Or on the sign-in screen, click "I need help signing in" and then "Forgot password." Enter your email address and follow the email prompts.
All customers creating a new CTA/CES Account will receive an email confirming their new user name at the email address they used to create the account. If you did not receive the confirmation email, please take the following steps:
Attempt to login with the new account credentials you just created. If your email address was entered correctly during account creation, you will be able to successfully access your account.
