SEMA Show organizers have reported an increase in the number of booth space applications from exhibitors for all of the SEMA Show's 12 sections.

Booth space applications for the 2013 SEMA Show are currently being accepted. Early indicators reveal an increase in exhibitor activity, and SEMA Show organizers are also reporting an increase in interest and booth applications for each of the Show's 12 sections. The numbers are currently outpacing the amount of applications received at this time last year. The 2013 SEMA Show takes place at the Las Vegas Convention Center, Tuesday–Friday, November 5–8, in Las Vegas.  

Companies interested in exhibiting at the 2013 SEMA Show are encouraged to submit booth space applications to ensure participation in the Priority Booth Selection Process. While booth space applications (commonly referred to as the Exhibitor Space Rental Agreement) are accepted anytime before the Show in November, manufacturers who return their applications with a deposit by April 5, 2013, will be included in the Priority Booth Selection Process—the first opportunity exhibitors have to select their booth locations for the upcoming SEMA Show.

"It's clear that Show exhibitors are picking up where they left off, making the commitment to the SEMA Show earlier in the year and building off of last year's momentum," said Peter MacGillivray, vice president of communications and events. "We are working to attract increased numbers of qualified buyers while providing exhibitors with the ideal venue to showcase their newest products and innovations and boost the return on their investment."

The 2012 SEMA Show drew more than 60,000 domestic and international buyers. The displays are segmented into 12 sections, and last year's New Products Showcase featured nearly 2,000 newly introduced parts, tools and components. In addition, the SEMA Show provides attendees with educational seminars, product demonstrations, special events, networking opportunities and more.

The 12 categories of the SEMA Show are: Collision Repair & Refinish; Mobile Electronics & Technology; Wheels & Accessories; Global Tire Expo—Powered by TIA; Powersports & Utility Vehicles; Tools & Equipment; Restoration Marketplace; Trucks, SUVs, Off-Road; Racing & Performance; Business Services; Hot Rod Alley; Restyling & Car Care Accessories.
