It's not too late to sign up as an exhibitor, and booth space is being assigned on a first-come, first-served basis.

Once a company registers to exhibit at the 2011 SEMA Show, the next step is to enter "Ideas Alive," the Show's newly themed New Products Showcase. This incredible display in the Upper South Hall of the Las Vegas Convention Center allows exhibitors to highlight their hottest gear and direct buyers to their booth. As an added incentive, the first product entry is complimentary for exhibitors. The Showcase attracts buyers in search of new products, as well as the 2,000+ members of the media on assignment to cover the latest developments in the specialty-equipment industry.

  Exhibitor Demonstration During SEMA Show
  SEMA Show exhibitors use product demonstrations to bring buyers face-to-face with their latest innovations.
Exhibitors also have the opportunity to host workshops and demonstrations for customers and prospects, further expanding their brand awareness and exposure. In addition, exhibitors can host networking events both in their booth space after Show hours and at banquets and special presentations throughout Las Vegas. SEMA Show staff can easily help coordinate these activities and suggest ways to promote your efforts. For any questions, contact Susan L. Schwartz, 702/450-7662, ext.102 or e-mail sschwartz@convexx.com.

Both the SEMA Show Directory and SEMA Show Pocket Guide are distributed at the Show to attendees, providing both directions to exhibitor booths and contact information for reaching out to exhibitors after the 2011 SEMA Show concludes. Both of these publications are highly valuable resources for sourcing new products, and exhibitors are included in the directory for free if they register before the September 2 deadline.
