10 Reasons Why the Powersports Industry Needs to Exhibit at the SEMA Show

  Honda Ruckus at SEMA Show
  The Honda Ruckus ignited a whole market of young car and powersports enthusiasts and made its first SEMA Show appearance in 2008.

If you're a manufacturer, buyer or member of the powersports industry, then you need to join us at the 2010 SEMA Show to see the latest products and trends emerging in this dynamic marketplace. Here are just a few of the reasons you need to get to Las Vegas in November:

10. Excellent exhibit value: The SEMA member rate is only $19.95 per net square foot.

9. Improved ROI: With lower booth pricing, exhibitors realize higher return on investment (ROI).

8. More than 50 free educational seminars: With subjects such as website design, online marketing, customer relationship management, selling to younger buyers, providing excellent customer service and improving ROI on in-dealership accessory programs, the SEMA Show attracts high-quality, professional dealers.

7. Powersports-dealer-specific education: The all-new, two-day, 14-session Powersports Dealer Update Workshops, conducted by Gart Sutton & Associates, will attract powersports dealers nationwide.

6. Exhibit space in addition to booth space: A dedicated powersports section in the Show’s New Products Showcase gets seen by the more than 100,000 Show attendees and 2,400 media attendees. Exhibitors receive one free product display and as many more as they want for only $75 each. Even better, as a SEMA Show exhibitor, you are entitled to free scheduled press conferences with journalists from powersports publications including Motorcycle Product News, Motorcycle, ATV Rider, Baggers, Dirt Rider, Hot Bike, Motorcycle Cruiser, Motorcyclist, Sport Rider, Street Chopper, Super Street Bike, American Iron and Road Bike magazines.

5. 4,650 powersports dealers, distributors and others interested in buying powersports products attended the 2009 SEMA Show. Year-to-date, 2010 SEMA Show attendee pre-registration numbers are ahead of last year’s. What’s more, in 2009, 40% of the buyers were from the West Coast and 25% were international.

4. The specialty-equipment industry and the powersports industry are a natural fit. Powersports and the SEMA Show share tremendously complementary cross-over lifestyles—custom V-twins and hot rods, motocross bikes, dirt bikes, ATVs, UTVs, trucks, metric street bikes, sport-compact cars, drag bikes, dragsters and more. A first-ever SEMA Powersports Industry Leaders Roundtable will be held with leaders from both industries, providing valuable insights and information for helping powersports companies compete and grow their businesses today as well as prepare for tomorrow’s challenges and opportunities.

3. New buyers and markets for powersports products: More than 50,000 buyers attended last year’s SEMA Show, of which 87% make or influence buying decisions. Twenty-five percent of the buyers are international from more than 100 countries worldwide. This is an untapped and extremely lucrative market for powersports exhibitors.

2. Family friendly and fun: Las Vegas in November is beautiful and sunny and enjoys temperatures of more than 70ºF. And while exhibitors are doing business at the SEMA Show, their families can take advantage of the all the fun Vegas has to offer and the lowest hotel room rates in recent history.
