The deadline for 2014 SEMA Show exhibitors to submit applications to conduct a press conference during the Show is August 1.

Applications for SEMA Show Press Conferences are due next Friday, August 1.

Hosting an official press conference can be effective in reaching a large number of media and building relationships. They are, however, a great deal of work and require a large amount of time and effort. Read "What Exhibitors Need to Know Before Hosting a SEMA Show Press Conference" to help you determine whether a press conference is right for you.

SEMA will publish a Media Conference Schedule to be distributed to all attending journalists and posted on As a reminder, having a press conference does not guarantee that media will be in attendance and does not entitle exhibitors to receive any media lists.

Due to time limitations, all media conference topics must be pre-approved by SEMA. Press conference topics must be newsworthy. New-Product announcements will only be considered if the product is completely new to the Industry, not just to your company.
