DIAMOND BAR, CA (August 15, 2014)
- For the first time, media attending the SEMA Show, the premier automotive specialty products trade event in the world, can get a head start on their coverage before the Show's official opening.

At the SEMA Light-Truck Accessory Alliance (TORA) Media Preview registered and credentialed journalists can avoid the rush of 60,000 buyers to get a sneak peek at some of the newest parts and accessories for the truck & SUV segment of the automotive aftermarket, including those for the very popular and newly redesigned 2015 Ford F-150 pickup and Chevy Tahoe/GMC Yukon SUVs.

A limited number of TORA manufacturers will have their new products on display and representatives will be available for interviews from 1:00-5:00 P.M. PST on Monday, November 3 in the SEMA Show Media Center located in room N110 of the Las Vegas Convention Center.

"With more than 2,000 exhibitors spread over a million square feet, there's a lot to cover at the SEMA Show, even for the most seasoned journalists," said Peter MacGillivray, SEMA VP of events and communications.
