SEMA Show Press Conference Application Deadline This Week

By Rachel Tatum

Press Conference
Hosting a press conference can be an effective way to reach a large number of media.

The deadline for SEMA Show exhibitors to apply to host a press conference at the 2018 SEMA Show is this Friday, July 27.

Exhibitors interested in hosting a press conference should note:

  • Hosting a press conference is not for every exhibitor. While a press conference can be an effective and efficient way to get your news to a large number of media, it is not suited for every type of news announcement. A great deal of planning goes into holding a successful press conference, and there is no guarantee that media will show up.
  • Submitting an application does not guarantee an official press conference slot. All applications will be reviewed and applicants will be notified of the status in mid-August. The final press conference schedule will be released in September.
  • A confirmation email is automatically sent when the application is received. If a confirmation email is not received, there may be technical problems and the application may not have gone through successfully.
  • There are several other resources available to help exhibitors connect with media.

Exhibitors are encouraged to contact Rachel Tatum at or 909-978-6669 to learn more about SEMA Show press conferences and other media resources.
