Show Floor Project
A new financing option gives exhibitors with five or more years of seniority points the choice to extend their payments.

SEMA Show organizers are offering qualified exhibitors a unique and radical payment plan option to ease cash-flow concerns. For the first time in the SEMA Show’s 43-year history, exhibitors with five or more years of seniority points may choose to extend their payments for as much as 12 months. The promotion is one of several new programs designed to make it more affordable for companies to participate in the SEMA Show, Tuesday–Friday, November 3–6, 2009, in Las Vegas.

“The SEMA Show is the largest gathering of automotive aftermarket companies in the United States,” said Peter MacGillivray, SEMA vice president of communications and events. “Based on early registration numbers, we’re confident that the 2009 event will continue to be the best place for the industry to do business and stay connected with this market.”

The financing option was developed to assist long-standing SEMA Show exhibitors participating at the 2009 event. In previous years, SEMA Show exhibitors were required to pay in full months before the Show. The financing option includes a low processing fee and has exhibitors submitting final payment as late as mid-May, 2010.

“These exhibitors are the reason why the SEMA Show has been such a success,” said MacGillivray. “They are the innovators who define our market. We’re here to help them in any way possible.”

Companies that reserve their booth space by Friday, May 22, will be able to secure the best booth location by taking part in the Priority Booth Selection Process, which begins Tuesday, June 16. Space will continue to be assigned after the drawing on a first-come, first-served basis.
