Before many products debut at the SEMA Show and end up on a retailer’s shelf, they make an East Coast appearance at Spring Carlisle as part of the Automotive Restoration Market Organization (ARMO) Hot Products Showcase.
Spring Carlisle, April 21–25, at the Carlisle, Pennsylvania, Fairgrounds, is open to the public, and has been an annual destination for car lovers since 1977. One of the marquee features of the spring show is ARMO's display. ARMO directs its efforts toward preserving and promoting the automotive restoration industry and annually, at Spring Carlisle, offers its showcase for the nearly 100,000 guests and thousands of vendors who converge on fairgrounds for the days-long automotive spectacular.
With the showcase at Spring Carlisle, visitors will see the latest and greatest products in the restoration market. Product experts are available at the ARMO display to talk about each item. New for 2021, products will also appear in an online showcase display, and guests will vote for Best New Product Awards electronically. In addition to the New Product awards, a special “People’s Choice” award is reserved for the products on-site in the ARMO Hot Products Showcase tent, and will be chosen only by guests on-site.
“ARMO members look forward to participating in Spring Carlisle each year,” said SEMA’s ARMO Council Director Jim Skelly. “As the largest restoration event of the year, it’s the perfect way to kick off the car show season and showcase products. We’re especially excited for our members to show off their hot new products and connect with the industry at this year’s event.”
