SEMA has developed a list of 1,500 buyers and distributors in China from which the best matches will meet with U.S. manufacturers participating in the new SEMA CIAPE China Development Conference, taking place September 23–26.
Nearly 150 exhibitors are signed up to exhibit in PAACE Automechanika
being held in Mexico City July 14–16 in Mexico City Mexico. This
represents an increase of 15% from 2008 and reflects growing
opportunities for aftermarket companies interested in selling into the
Mexican and Latin American markets.
The SEMA Show may be closed to the public, but the annual event is of great interest to auto consumers and enthusiasts throughout the world because of the thousands of modified vehicles and new products on display.
China became the world's largest car market last year. Now SEMA has created a unique program to connect members with this historic opportunity.
To highlight the customization possibilities of the just-released
Chevy Cruze to the United Arab Emirates, GM Middle East and SEMA
partnered to customize two of the all-new global compact cars.
In just the first week of exhibitor registration, booth commitments are up 20 percent and many exhibitors are increasing their footprint—positive signs that the industry is getting back on economic track.
