SEMA has won a $50,000 grant from the state of California. This is good news for California-based companies, as qualified companies are eligible for $1,500 to help defray the cost of participating in the upcoming SEMA Middle East Business Development Conference, March 31–April 7, 2020. 

This is in addition to the $1,250 available from the federal government for a total grant of $2,750 to exhibit in a turnkey booth at Custom Show Emirates in the United Arab Emirates and to participate in the first-ever SEMA trip to Saudi Arabia to meet with trade buyers, attend networking events and tour specialty-equipment shops in Riyadh.
