Exhibitors: Use Your Seniority to Choose Your Show Floor Location Early

The deadline to submit SEMA Show Booth Applications to participate in the Priority Selection Process—where companies choose a Show-floor location based on exhibitor seniority—is April 3.

Companies that submit 2023 SEMA Show Booth Applications after the April 3 deadline will select floor space during the Priority Selection Process, May 1–17, on a space-availability basis. The selection process provides exhibitors with the opportunity to secure the best location for their Show display.

On April 24, each company will be contacted via email with a booth selection date and time range. The email will be sent to the person listed as the exhibitor’s primary SEMA Show contact.

How To Be Prepared. About an hour prior to their selection time, exhibitors are encouraged to prepare by viewing the 2023 Show’s online floorplan. Updated every 30 minutes, exhibitors can see as the Show begins to take shape and monitor their desired section to gain a general idea of where they want to display.

When Check Email. On April 24, each primary contact should take time to check their email, including their “junk” folders. Companies that have not received a correspondence by April 26, or that want to change the primary Show contact listed on the application should email or call 909-396-0289.

Make the Pick. During the exhibitor’s time to pick, a SEMA Show account representative will call the primary SEMA Show contact and help locate and assign the exhibit space that best suits the company’s needs.

The 2023 SEMA Show is scheduled for Tuesday–Friday, October 31–November 3, in Las Vegas. For additional information about exhibiting at the SEMA Show, visit
