Diamond Bar, Calif. (May 14, 2012) - Wheel manufacturers, perhaps more than any other segment, are showing strong signs of confidence in the economy by securing booth space for the 2012 SEMA Show taking place Tuesday-Friday, October 30, November 2, 2012, in Las Vegas, Nevada.

The upcoming Show will include nearly 150 manufacturers exhibiting in the Wheels & Accessories area - the highest number of exhibitors since the section was created in 2010. Among the companies exhibiting in this area are several first-time exhibitors and companies that have not exhibited at the SEMA Show in recent years.

"We're pleased to see so many wheel companies joining us at the 2012 SEMA Show," said Peter MacGillivray, SEMA VP of events and communications. "Wheels are such an integral product in our industry, and the fact that so many exhibitors have confirmed their participation this early in the year is exciting."

Along with the Global Tire Expo, Powered by TIA (Tire Industry Association), the Wheels & Accessories section of the SEMA Show fills the entire lower level of the South Hall. Other sections of the SEMA Show include Business Services, Collision Repair & Refinish, Hot Rod Alley, Mobile Electronics & Technology, Powersports & Utility Vehicles, Racing & Performance, Restoration Marketplace, Restyling & Car Care Accessories, Tools & Equipment, and Trucks, SUVs & Off-Road.

The exhibitor list and floorplan will be posted on www.SEMAShow.com after they begin selecting their space later this month. The website also includes information on how to exhibitor and attend the 2012 SEMA Show.
