SEMA Show, AAPEX Registration Now Open

Attendee and media registration for the 2010 SEMA Show and AAPEX is now open at www.SEMAshow.com and www.aapexshow.com. The two shows, which are held the first week of November in Las Vegas, Nevada, are open to auto-related buyers, installers, retailers, dealers, manufacturer’s reps and other specified categories.

Registration allows attendees to enter both the SEMA Show (Tuesday-Friday, November 2-5, at the Las Vegas Convention Center) and AAPEX (Tuesday-Thursday, November 2-4, at the Sands Expo & Convention Center).

“We’re encouraged by the strong support that exhibitors are demonstrating for the 2010 SEMA Show,” said Peter MacGillivray, SEMA VP of events and communications. “We’re seeing lots of first-time exhibitors sign up and returning exhibitors are already committing to larger booth space. They’re already planning to be at the upcoming show and their primary reason will be to connect with buyers.”

AAPEX organizers say they are equally excited about the 2010 event.

“Strong and early exhibitor support for AAPEX 2010 sets the stage for a high quality trade show for domestic and international buyers,” said Kathleen Schmatz, president and CEO of the Automotive Aftermarket Industry Association (AAIA), one of the organizations that jointly sponsors AAPEX. “Combined with the SEMA Show’s encouraging numbers, we are all anticipating one of the best Industry Weeks in Las Vegas.”
