Get Tickets Here for SEMA Industry Awards Banquet

By SEMA Editors

Celebrate the industry with your colleagues at the SEMA Show Industry Awards Banquet, featuring a formal sit-down dinner and entertainment from rock supergroup and fellow gearheads Billy F Gibbons, Jimmie Vaughan, Jeff Beck and Michael Anthony.

The four musicians will be backed by Vaughan’s Tilt-A-Whirl Band. While each is respected for his individual notable music contributions, they are also well-known as hot-rod enthusiasts, and each has an enviable stable of rods and customs.

“This is an extremely exciting opportunity to see four legendary musicians who are all ‘car guys’ play together at the SEMA Industry Awards Banquet,” said Chris Kersting, president and CEO. “It’s a rare, once-in-a-lifetime opportunity available only to Show attendees.”

The SEMA Industry Awards Banquet is the automotive specialty-equipment market’s premier awards ceremony where industry excellence and achievements are celebrated. Held annually on Thursday evening during the week of the SEMA Show, the event is the industry’s single largest gala attended by nearly 3,000 automotive icons, professionals, supporters and celebrities.

Tickets are still available to SEMA Showgoers and include a formal sit-down dinner. The program also includes the announcement of the SEMA Person of the Year, Manufacturer of the Year, WD of the Year, Rep Agency of the Year, and Gen-III Innovator of the Year awards, and pays tribute to this year’s SEMA Hall of Fame inductees—GiGi Carleton, Doug Evans and Barry Meguiar.

All SEMA Show exhibitors qualify to obtain a limited number of free tickets to the banquet. Tickets can also be purchased by any Showgoer at
