The official attendee app for the 2013 SEMA Show, ConnectME Mobile is designed to help attendees create the ultimate Show experience. In addition to an electronic Show guide, this app connects buyers with exhibitors via an automatic matching component; provides a searchable database of exhibitors, sessions and speakers; and lets users create an appointment agenda and receive Show organizer updates.
