SEMA Education
SEMA Education will host four international networking roundtables at the 2018 SEMA Show in Las Vegas.

The 2018 SEMA Show, to be held October 30–November 2, in Las Vegas, will feature more than 100 free educational seminars, providing attendees with professional development and training resources designed to help their businesses grow. The following are four must-attend international networking roundtables:

Tap into the Passionate Middle East Customizing Market
Monday, October 29, 2018; 11:00 a.m.–12:00 p.m.; Upper North Hall, Room N259
Learn how to cash in on this lucrative region. The United Arab Emirates and surrounding countries provide some of the best opportunities for U.S. specialty-parts manufacturers. Off-roading, classic-car collecting and motorsports are all growing in popularity. Attendees will also learn about the details of the one-on-one matchmaking program to be held in Abu Dhabi, March 19–24, 2019.

Lunch Down Under: Australia/New Zealand
Monday, October 29, 2018; 12:00–1:00 p.m.; Upper North Hall, Room N259
Meet for lunch and conversation with top buyers from Down Under. Hear about the opportunities in these countries of pickup and SUV customizing fanatics and diehard hot-rod enthusiasts. In particular, excitement is building for the Ford Mustang (in right-hand drive). Talk with distributors and retailers eager to carry product to meet the groundswell of enthusiasm, with more than 20,000 “letters of interest” submitted by consumers drawn to the all-new performance vehicle. Explore the challenges as well; all vehicles in Australia and New Zealand are right-hand drive, and many vehicles popularly customized in those countries are not sold in the United States.

Network at the Inaugural SEMA Show Latin American Roundtable
Monday, October 29, 2018; 2:00 p.m.–3:00 p.m.; Upper North Hall, Room N259
The Latin American vehicle customization market will be the focus of a first-ever SEMA Show roundtable covering this important region of 646 million people. Learn about the latest trends in customizing and hear from key buyers and experienced exporters about how to get started or grow your business selling to customers in Latin America.

Access to 1.4 Billion Consumers: The Chinese Specialty Equipment Market
Monday, October 29, 2018; 3:00 p.m.–4:00 p.m.; Upper North Hall, Room N259
Chinese distributors and SEMA members already successful in the region provide insider tips. Learn the latest trends, applications and perceptions of U.S. brands in the Chinese market. This will be a great opportunity to meet with press and distributors of specialty products in this giant market in an informal, practical session that will assist attendees in deciding if this market is a good fit for their products.
