The SEMA Show: Where the Global Industry Gathers


By SEMA Editors

Once a year, the SEMA Show creates a defining platform to be seen, connect, share ideas, and drive the industry into the future. And it's not just one Show, but 12 Shows in one, showcasing the entire product landscape of the automotive aftermarket, including exclusive halls covering Business Services, Collision Repair, Global Tire Expo, Hot Rod, Mobile Electronics, Powersports, Racing & Performance, Restoration, Restyling & Car Care, Tools & Equipment, Trucks/SUVs/Offroad, and Wheels & Accessories.

It's true: there is no other event on the planet that can provide the quality and variety of automotive products, vehicles, trends, ideas and people uniting as a global community in one location than the SEMA Show in Las Vegas, October 31-November 3.

"You have everything you can think of for automotive in one location," said Alex Taylor, drag racer and automotive influencer.

"It's very much like being able to travel to more than 140 countries in just four days because that's how many countries are represented each year at the SEMA Show," continued Andy Tompkins, SEMA trade show director, communications & events.

The latest automotive innovations, technologies, trends and ideas will once again be on display at SEMA 2023.

"The SEMA Show is the pinnacle of product research and development," said B.J. Baldwin, athlete and off-road champion.

In addition, SEMA Show attendees can create a personalized development plan, with 57 free and 47 paid education seminars giving attendees an opportunity to sharpen their skills, boost their knowledge of the newest industry trends and learn about the latest business best practices.

"The education has been absolutely amazing!" said Christopher Harris, African American Racers Association.

There is no substitute for the countless face-to-face interactions at the SEMA Show, where business connections and interpersonal relationships are forged.

"In-person interactions are vital so that [the] passion keeps spreading and the conversation keeps going," said Taylor.

There's always tremendous excitement, enthusiasm, and buzz on SEMA Show floor. And, "Las Vegas is the perfect host city, offering a wide variety of hotel, restaurant and entertainment price points along with world-class opportunities to get business done on and off the Show floor," said SEMA's Tompkins.
