In just a few weeks,
the SEMA Show will roll into Las Vegas and exhibitors will introduce their latest
innovations including thousands of new products and customized vehicles.
But this year, the trade-only event is offering auto enthusiasts an opportunity
to test their auto savvy against SEMA Show exhibitors. Consumers are challenged
to make their best predictions on which vehicle models will emerge as the
industry's hottest vehicles by winning the inaugural SEMA Award.
In just a few weeks,
SEMA, the Specialty Equipment Market Association, applauded the signing
into law of the “Small Business Jobs and Credit Act” (H.R. 5297),
including $12 billion in tax incentives for small businesses and
creating a $30 billion resource to activate greater lending to small
businesses by community banks.
SEMA, the Specialty Equipment Market Association, praised the United
States Senate for passing the “Small Business Jobs and Credit Act” (HR
5297). SEMA urged quick ratification by the House of Representatives so
that it could then be signed into law by President Obama.
SEMA Show exhibitors will choose three outstanding vehicles as the winners of an all-new award, simply called the “SEMA Award.” Presented in three categories – “Hottest Car,” “Hottest Truck,” and “Hottest 4x4-SUV” – the SEMA Award marks the first time ever that the “exhibitor’s choice” will be tallied, recognizing the year’s top trend-setting vehicles.
Massachusetts Governor Deval Patrick signed into law a version of SEMA model legislation to create a vehicle registration classification for street rods, custom vehicles, replicas and specially constructed vehicles.

About this product:
For the sixth year, a panel of top automotive journalists from 15
countries throughout Asia, Europe, South Africa and South America
served on the SEMA Global Media Awards (GMA) panel.
SEMA recognizes that automotive personalization and customization is growing worldwide. Though the appeal of making cars and trucks fit one’s lifestyle has strong roots in the United States, this enthusiast attitude is universal—and growing. SEMA introduced the Global Media Award program in 2004 to highlight the wide appeal to enthusiasts on every continent of specialty-equipment products that are on display at the SEMA Show.
