It’s SEMA Time Again!

Another SEMA Show is upon us. It’s hard to believe it’s that time of year already. With a very successful NACE behind us, it’s time to travel to Las Vegas for a week packed with everything automotive. The combination of SEMA and AAPEX makes for a jam-packed automotive gathering, and I’m sure this year will be no exception.

The good part about traveling to these shows is that they offer everything an automotive professional or hobbyist could want. If you’re a car enthusiast, SEMA has all the shiny stuff your heart desires. If it has been thought about for a vehicle, it will be there.

On the collision side, the Society of Collision Repair Specialists does a very nice job of offering collision-related topics and training for you while you’re there. Click HERE to see a full list of these sessions.

Our industry is changing at unprecedented speed. Never before has it been so important to have the proper equipment and repair techniques in your shop. Today, it truly is: Stay up to date or get left behind. Gatherings like these are an excellent way to see the latest and greatest equipment and procedures.

AAPEX features all the vendors on the mechanical repair side. Distribution and manufacturers will be well represented, showing the latest parts and technology for the repair channel to see. The associations offer excellent training for attendees as well.

If you’re going to be in Vegas for one of these two events, please be sure to stop by one of the Babcox Media booths. We have five booths at the shows and would love to hear about your business. We hope to see you there!
