We are once again hosting the Hot Product Showcase, taking place on April 19-22 at the Spring Carlisle Collector Car Swap Meet, Corral & Auction in Carlisle, Pennsylvania. This event is an opportunity for ARMO members to display one or more products at one of the largest gatherings of automotive restoration enthusiasts in the world.
Companies may submit multiple products to highlight in the Hot Products Showcase tent. The event is expected to feature nearly 100 aftermarket auto parts from about 40 to 50 manufacturers and suppliers. Products displayed may be new or items that a company chooses to feature. Event participation is included with the annual ARMO membership dues.
People’s Choice Awards
Consumers who visit the tent will have the opportunity to vote for their favorite new restoration products in multiple categories. The winners of these People’s Choice awards will be recognized through SEMA publicity and will be honored at the ARMO industry reception at the 2018 SEMA Show in Las Vegas. At this time, only new products will be eligible for awards; however, all products will receive exposure to consumers. The award categories will be as follows:
- Reproduction Original Replacement Engine
- Non-Original Interior
- Reproduction Original Replacement Drivetrain/Brakes/Suspension/Wheels
- Accessory Item
- Reproduction Original Replacement Interior
- Non-Original Drivetrain/Brakes/Suspension/Wheels

Hot Products Showcase Set in Prime Location
The Hot Products Showcase tent is located in a prime spot on the Spring Carlisle grounds across from the event stage, ensuring that virtually all of the nearly 100,000 quality attendees pass through at some point during the event.
Professional Photographer On Site
A professional photographer will be on site at the event to take hero shots of the products for the companies’ marketing efforts. The photos will also be displayed on ARMO’s website and in a looping presentation at the ARMO/HRIA booth at the 2018 SEMA Show.
This publicity is available exclusively to ARMO members for only the cost of shipping the product entries to the Carlisle Fairgrounds. Registrations will be accepted until April 17.
