DIAMOND BAR, Calif. (Feb. 22, 2012) - Applications are now available to exhibit at the 2012 SEMA Show, the premier automotive trade event where manufacturers of specialty parts and accessories connect face-to-face with more than 60,000 quality buyers from throughout the world. The application, also called the Exhibitor Space Rental Agreement (ESRA), is available at

While submissions are accepted anytime before the event takes place on October 30-November 2, 2012, manufacturers who return their ESRA with a deposit by April 27, 2012, will have greater opportunities to collaborate with Show organizers and participate in the Priority Booth Selection Process. The selection process is the first opportunity exhibitors have to select the actual location of their SEMA Show booth.

"The Priority Booth Selection Process is the best time for exhibitors to select their space at the Show," said Tom Gattuso, SEMA director of trade shows. "We highly recommend that exhibitors take part in the space selection process and commit to participating in the SEMA Show as early as possible. This really gives exhibitors the time they need to plan and prepare for the upcoming Show, and it allows for our staff to work with and assist as much as possible."

To further assist exhibitors in obtaining the greatest return on their investment, the SEMA Exhibitor Education Summit is now open to all exhibitors and potential exhibitors to register. Taking  place April 2-4, 2012, in Las Vegas, Nevada, the summit is an intensive program designed to connect exhibitors with key individuals and provide participants with up-to-the-minute insights into the Show.  Complimentary hotel rooms for and meals at the summit are included. Certain conditions do apply and are explained at, or can be obtained from Casie Stock at or 702/450-7662, ext. 109.
