How the OEM's Decisions Today Affect Your Business Tomorrow

 John Waraniak, SEMA VP Vehicle Technology
 SEMA VP of Vehicle Technology John Waraniak will moderate a webinar discussing the SEMA/CAR future industry forecasts.

Reports of a sour economy continue to circulate. Automakers are retooling, adjusting their directions to maintain and, in many cases, regain market shares. The future of the auto manufacturers will have a direct impact on the direction of many SEMA-member companies.

Take one hour on Thursday, September 17, to participate in the SEMA webinar, “Major Determinants of U.S. Automotive Demand: Factors Driving the U.S. Automotive Market.” This is your chance to learn more about the major economic drivers of the U.S. automotive market and their potential impact on the specialty-equipment industry.

The session will help SEMA members increase their understanding and awareness of macroeconomic trends and analysis to support business-development and scenario-planning efforts.

The findings are the result of a multi-phased series of specialty-equipment forecasting reports conducted by SEMA and the Center for Automotive Research (CAR). This session includes the findings from Phase III.

Moderator John Waraniak and CAR's Brett Smith will host a live Q&A at the end of the webinar to address the report's conclusions. SEMA recently presented the industry research findings at the annual State of the Association meeting in Pasadena, California, in August.
