The 2013 SEMA Show, held in the Las Vegas Convention Center (LVCC), November 5–8, will include more than one million square feet of exhibit space. To help buyers get the most out of the SEMA Show, below are some tips and benefits of pre-planning for the Show and taking advantage of early registration.

For buyers, officially registering for the 2013 SEMA Show should be a top priority. To attend the Show you must have a badge, and the sign-up process has never been easier.

Early Registration

  • Visit today and take advantage of early bird discounts. Currently, admission to the Show is only $25, and rates will increase—so register today! In addition to saving money, early registration also guarantees that attendees will receive their badges in the mail. The one badge is good for all four days of the SEMA Show and is also good for admittance into the three-day APPEX show.

    With early registration, attendees can avoid registration lines and hit the Show floor with a plan in hand and more time for business. Not only does it save money and time, early registration offers attendees peace of mind, knowing that when they are ready for the Show, they can hit the floor with no delays and avoid potential registration snafus.  

Pre-Show Planning

  • With badges ordered, buyers can continue pre-planning, by making housing and travel arrangements online and taking advantage of additional discounts on hotels and airfare. SEMA Show organizers have been working with major air carriers to secure discounted airfare for attendees. American, Delta and United are among the first airlines offering up to 10% off on round-trip airfare to Las Vegas. Reserving hotel rooms allows attendees to take advantage of the lowest rates at premium properties in the best locations.

More tips and suggestions on how buyers can get the most from the Show will be available in upcoming issues of SEMA eNews. In addition, all of the information will also be presented during an upcoming SEMA webinar, "Are You Ready for the SEMA Show," that will be held October 10, from 10:00 a.m.–11:00 a.m. (PDT).
