SEMA Data Co-op Has Meeting Marathon at the SEMA Show

More than 200 companies met with the SEMA Data Co-op team over four Show days.

The SEMA Data Co-op (SDC) made its first appearance at the 2012 SEMA Show a memorable one with a large meeting room in the Central Hall staffed by leading industry data experts. Equipped to conduct up to four presentations each hour, the room was literally filled to capacity throughout the week. Pre-Show recruiting for scheduled meetings was enthusiastically received, and strong walk-in traffic resulted in the SDC team meeting with more than 200 companies over four Show days.

Participants received a sneak preview of the full-featured PIM system to be launched in January, which met with rave reviews on its features, user interface and state-of-the-art functionality. Early results include bringing more than 65 new participants into the SDC beta phase with more than 60 additional strong prospects.

"It seems our only limitation is the number of companies we can get in front of," commented Jon Wyly, SDC CEO. "Our results at the Show were fantastic, and we look forward to hitting some exciting milestones over the next couple of months."

In addition to introductory meetings and demonstrations, the SDC conducted a very well attended ACES and PIES training session led by the "Father of PIES" himself, Ed Heon. Principal and founder of DATAgility, the SDC's primary technology and support provider, Heon and his team bring a level of expertise and experience to the SDC effort that is truly unique.
