“I was immediately pleased to learn the extent to which the desert is utilized for active hobby and off-road use,” said Lonnie McCurry (left), COO of Skyjacker Suspensions. He said that suspension lift systems have a modestly active market currently, but he saw potential for dramatically increased sales if regulations eased.

Meet pre-vetted buyers from throughout the Middle East at the SEMA Middle East Business Development Conference being held in the United Arab Emirates March 13–16, 2013. Motorsports and vehicle personalization have a strong and growing base throughout the region, and a quick drive around Dubai or Abu Dhabi would surprise any gearhead with the wide variety of customized vehicles traveling the roads. Off-roading is also extremely popular throughout the region with SUVs and pickup owners heading into the desert.    

The cost to participate is $2,750 with the U.S. Department of Commerce once again providing a $1,000 grant to defray the costs of participating for qualified companies. Last year's event sold out, so don’t miss out; register now!
