The Paint, Body & Equipment (PBE) section of the SEMA Show is the fastest-growing area of the event, with nearly 45 percent more exhibitors already confirmed to exhibit in just the specific PBE section during the 2010 event compared to the previous year, show organizers say.
At the close of the Priority Booth Space Selection process, a total of 79 companies had signed up to exhibit in the 2010 SEMA Show PBE section alone, compared to 55 the previous year. In addition, there are hundreds of other companies throughout the SEMA Show this year that will be showcasing their products to the paint and body market, including such long-standing exhibitors as House of Kolor, PPG, Sherwin-Williams, 3M and more, according to show organizers.
"The paint and body market has increasingly become an important market," said Peter MacGillivray, SEMA vice president of communications and events. "That’s why the Paint, Body & Equipment section of the show was expanded in just its second year of existence. That’s also why we are partnering with industry experts to provide this audience with quality education and networking opportunities."
Organizers partnered with the Society of Collision Repair Specialists (SCRS) to present Repairer Driven Education (RDE) during the SEMA Show. RDE includes 21 seminars specifically designed or chosen with the collision repair professional in mind.
SCRS will also be holding a number of meetings, forums and receptions in Las Vegas during the SEMA Show, Nov. 25.
"The landscape and business of automotive paint is changing," said MacGillivray. "At the SEMA Show, we’re constantly evolving to adjust to the changing marketplace. It’s been exciting for us to be able to meet the needs of this market and provide businesses with new opportunities and cost savings."
Industry professionals will also be able to conveniently attend meetings with the Collision Industry Conference (CIC) and participate in education from I-CAR during the SEMA Show in Las Vegas.
