Manufacturers in the automotive aftermarket can now apply for booth space at the 2019 SEMA Show by visiting semashow.com/buyabooth. The 2019 SEMA Show will take place Nov. 5-8 in Las Vegas.
“The SEMA Show is the leading automotive trade event in the world and where manufacturers of automotive parts and accessories connect with the $43 billion aftermarket industry,” said Tom Gattuso, vice president of events, SEMA. “The show is the best place for companies to meet with existing customers and establish relationships with new buyers and key decision makers who attend the SEMA Show.”
Last year’s four-day SEMA Show attracted 161,000 industry professionals, including more than 71,000 professional buyers representing retail shops, warehouse distributors, e-commerce sites, speed shops, dealers, installers and jobbers from all over the world.
Event organizers for the SEMA Show say the immense brand and product exposure that companies can obtain by exhibiting at the show make this trade-only event the most important selling opportunity of the year.
“The SEMA Show gives worldwide exposure to your products and business, opening doors to the national and international markets,” said Marcus Jardim, founder and CEO of Digipower, who exhibited at the SEMA Show for the first time last year. “It is a fantastic opportunity that allows you to create connections and be up-to-date with automotive industry trends.”
With heightened screening to confirm that exhibitors represent qualified businesses, the SEMA Show is a focused trade-only event targeted to companies dealing with automotive parts and accessories that enhance the performance, styling and functionality of cars, trucks and SUVs. Recent rules limiting booth space growth for returning exhibitors ensure that all qualified manufacturers and new companies in the marketplace that would like to participate are able to do so.
Manufacturers that successfully reserve their booth space before March 29 will be included in the Priority Booth Space Selection, which begins on April 29. The three-week process allows exhibitors to select the actual booth location within the 2-million-square-foot Las Vegas Convention Center.
