Hot Rod Industry Alliance (HRIA)
The Hot Rod Industry Alliance (HRIA) aims to provide programs and effective strategies to ensure the prosperity of the hot-rod industry. Two of the council’s programs are proven successes in raising awareness for the builders of the industry. HRIA’s Feature Vehicle Program and Builder’s Challenge highlight up-and-coming talented builders as well as promote HRIA members’ parts. These programs are produced annually at the SEMA Show in Las Vegas.

On July 12, 2013, SEMA members joined with SEMA staff and thousands of enthusiasts to celebrate the fourth annual Collector Car Appreciation Day (CCAD).

The annual SEMA Hot Rod Industry Alliance (HRIA) Education Day will be held, for the first time, in conjunction with the Detroit Autorama—the 60-year-old custom car show taking place in March 2014 at Cobo Hall in Detroit. The program will consist of 24 sessions, each led by a hot-rod parts manufacturer educating attendees about product features, benefits and installation guidelines.
