By SEMA Editors

SEMA Show Exterior Crowd
To transport Showgoers from one side of the Convention Center to the other, the SEMA Show Loop shuttles run every 15 minutes. The shuttles are available Tuesday–Thursday, 8:00 a.m.–6:00 p.m., and Friday, 8:00 a.m.–4:00 p.m.

There are plenty of options when deciding how to get to and from the Las Vegas Convention Center (LVCC) during the week of the 2017 SEMA Show. Hotel shuttles, which run every 20–30 minutes, are available to take Showgoers to the event in the morning, and back to the hotel at the closing of the Show. There are shuttles from the airport, as well as traditional transportation options like taxis and the monorail. There are also areas reserved for people who prefer to use driving services, such as Uber and Lyft. Take a moment and become familiar with all of the ground transportation options available when you arrive for the SEMA Show.
