SEMA Member News - November/December 2010

ARMO New-Products Showcase

Automotive Restoration Market Organization (ARMO) member companies were once again given the opportunity to show their newest and hottest products to buyers at Spring Carlisle, held April 21–25, 2010, in Carlisle, Pennsylvania. The ARMO New Products Showcase gives member companies exposure in front of thousands of buyers and consumers. The April event date provides a perfect opportunity to jumpstart the season, but product exposure doesn’t end there. Each product in the Showcase is professionally photographed, and the photos are shown on a large flat-screen TV in the ARMO booth during the annual SEMA Show in Las Vegas. Additionally, the products are included in this edition of SEMA Member News. The annual New Products Showcase at Carlisle is free to all ARMO members and is one of the most popular ARMO benefits. Nineteen member companies participated in 2010, showing off more than 40 products.
