DIAMOND BAR, Calif. (May 23, 2013) -- SEMA Showgoers can obtain reliable, low-cost hotel rooms from Travel Planners, the official housing partner for the 2013 SEMA Show. Reservations made at offer discounts at dozens of hotels, with rates as low as $56 per night and many more properties agreeing to waive the standard "resort fees" currently implemented throughout the city.

"We want to give SEMA Show attendees the confidence that when booking their travel plans, they are ensured low rates and a high level of personal service from a dependable partner to help make their trip to the SEMA Show easy and affordable," said Peter MacGillivray, SEMA VP of events and communications. "Showgoers should be aware that there are other travel providers that often misrepresent their rates and ultimately leave people paying more, or in some cases without a reservation at all."

SEMA began partnering with Travel Planners in 2011 to provide Showgoers with guaranteed low rates on dozens of hotel rooms in Las Vegas during the week of the SEMA Show. The 33-year-old company works with the hotels to identify guests as SEMA Showgoers, so they are informed about Show-related programs such as free shuttles. Other benefits of booking through Travel Planners include:

- No service fees charged

- Ability to update or cancel reservations up to three days prior to the event without any fees or penalties

- Immediate confirmations upon making reservations

- Onsite assistance from Travel Planners staff at the SEMA Show

SEMA Show organizers also coordinated with major air carriers to secure discounted airfare for 2013 SEMA Show attendees. American, Delta and United are among the first airlines offering up to 10% off on round-trip airfare to Las Vegas.

Every year we strive to increase value and lower costs for SEMA Show attendees," added MacGillivray. "This includes working with hotels in Las Vegas to negotiate the lowest rates possible. We're pleased that once again, many of the hotels are enthusiastically committed to servicing SEMA Showgoers."

To secure rooms through the official SEMA Housing Services, reservations should be made from the SEMA Show site and include the official housing seal. Travel Planners can also be reached directly at 800-221-3531 or 212-532-1660.
