SEMA Show exhibitors who will host an industry icon, TV personality, celebrity or famous vehicle in their booth can gain additional exposure for their special attraction at the Show.

Let SEMA know about your famous guest by submitting the Celebrity Appearance Notification form by Friday, September 4.

Use the notification to have your special appearance publicized. Simply include your company name, booth number, the date and time that the special personality or attraction will be available to Showgoers. The information will be provided to attendees and media during the Show.

A common reason that companies host a celebrity is drive booth traffic by providing buyers with a identifiable, visual connection of the company's target market. However, celebrities are not the only tactic that draws buyer attention.

SEMA Show research identifies giveaways as one of the most effective methods to attract buyers. In fact, 2014 SEMA Show buyers cited freebies among the top five leading reasons for them to visit an exhibitor’s booth, along with product or vehicle displays, product demonstrations and a unique booth layout/design.
