— Highest Number of Exhibitors in Show’s 47-Year History –
Diamond Bar, CA (October 23, 2013) – The SEMA Show, the premier automotive specialty products trade event in the world, is shaping up this year to be one of the strongest in the event’s 47-year history, a good sign the business of vehicle personalization, customization and preservation is rebounding.
Some 130,000 professionals from more than 130 countries are expected to attend the 2013 SEMA Show (www.semashow.com) at the Las Vegas Convention Center this November 5-8, to see the newest products, keep up on the latest trends and learn the best business practices the $31B automotive specialty equipment industry has to offer.
More than 2,500 exhibitors will cover more than 1 million square-feet of floor space. The vast majority of SEMA Show exhibitors and attendees are small business owners looking to network and find new opportunities to help them increase sales and profitability.
“We expect to fill every nook and cranny at the Las Vegas Convention Center this year,” said Peter MacGillivray, SEMA VP of events and communications. “We’ve even contracted for exhibitor space at the LVH (Hotel) next door,” MacGillivray says, noting that the association makes every effort to accommodate new exhibitors who typically bring new, innovative products to the industry.
