Technology and Innovation on Display

Since 1967, manufacturers of automotive aftermarket parts have relied on the SEMA Show to debut their products and conduct business, so after having to spend more than a year mostly separated, the industry is eager to reconnect at the 2021 SEMA Show.

Companies exhibiting at this year’s SEMA Show have already selected their booth spaces and are preparing to bring nearly two years’ worth of innovation and new technology to share with attendees. The exhibits will be housed throughout the four halls of the Las Vegas Convention Center, including the newly constructed West Hall and the outside areas. Below are some of the publications that look forward to the SEMA Show every year to highlight what’s new in the industry.
