|While there's no doubt that the 2020 SEMA Show will be different, the SEMA team is making plans to preserve the Show’s core business value in a safety-first environment.|
This November SEMA will host the automotive industry for four days of business, innovation, inspiration, and education at the 54th SEMA Show. In some respects, it will be one of the most challenging events the association has delivered. But it will also be among the most rewarding for those participating.
SEMA members have made clear the event is essential this year to help the industry renew business ties, find new opportunities and accelerate into a successful 2021. While there's no doubt that the 2020 SEMA Show will be different, the SEMA team is making plans to preserve the Show’s core business value in a safety-first environment. Expect the opportunity to introduce new products, make connections, share ideas and strategize for the future.
What will the 2020 SEMA Show look like? Plans are taking shape around best practices, such as:
- Crowd density concepts, including directional traffic flow and social-distancing measures.
- Use of CDC recommended personal protective equipment, such as facemasks, face shields and safety partitions.
- Reducing touch points in high-traffic areas like Registration and the New Products Showcase.
- Efficient health query protocols as you arrive on campus.
- Increasing frequencies of facility cleaning and adding a process for nightly sanitization.
- Streamlining food service locations to create touchless and cashless transactions.
- Encouraging early registration so credentials can be mailed in advance the Show.
While specific plans are still fluid, SEMA’s work with state and local authorities and a range of experts in the fields of health, facilities management and event production is keeping us apprised of evolving recommendations and best practices.
SEMA will work in the months ahead to evaluate and incorporate these measures to keep your health and safety as our highest priority. Look for regular updates on our developing safety plans throughout the Summer and into September.
Thank you for your continued support of the SEMA Show, and we look forward to seeing you in November.
