SEMA News—April 2020

Vegas, We Have Ignited!

Although the SEMA Show is an exclusively trade-only event designed to provide the automotive aftermarket industry with a venue in which to conduct business, SEMA Ignited is the official after-party that enables automotive enthusiasts to share in the excitement of the SEMA Show and see some of the top vehicles and products from the event. As the official SEMA Show after-party, SEMA Ignited takes place at the conclusion of the final day of the event. Last year’s SEMA Ignited featured hundreds of SEMA Show vehicles taking part in the SEMA Cruise, as well as drift demonstrations, celebrities, iconic builders and displays—all of which were captured by media outlets like the ones below.


Michael Eckerson provided his readers with a comprehensive report on what took place at the 2019 SEMA Ignited. His accompanying photography captured everything from the vehicles that cruised into the after-party to the Nitro Circus and drifting demonstrations.

MSN picked up Hot Rod editor Zach Martin’s coverage of SEMA Ignited, which included a gallery of more than 100 photos. In addition to vehicles displayed at the after-party, his photos gave readers multiple glimpses of the events and the conclusion of the Battle of the Builders competition.




The Las Vegas TV network sent reporter Alex Fresquez to SEMA Ignited to not only produce a video spot from the event, but also write a piece for the network’s online platform. He especially focused on the Ringbrothers, whose ’69 Camaro was crowned SEMA Battle of the Builders winner.
