Exhibiting at the SEMA Show takes some planning and preparation, and there are a number of details that may not occur to a first-timer until just a few weeks before the doors open. The Show organizers have put together a webinar—an online seminar that requires only a computer and an Internet connection for participation—designed to answer some of the most frequently asked logistical questions. They include what to do when you arrive at your hotel, how and where to arrange transportation, parking while at the Show, moving in and moving out, taking care of yourself, eating well and much more.
