The growing collision repair section of the 2011 SEMA Show is now branded
"Collision Repair and Refinish." The area will be one of 12 floor

in Las Vegas, Nevada.

"The number of
exhibitors and educational seminars for the collision repair and refinish
market increases year after year," said Peter MacGillivray, SEMA VP of
events and communications. "The new name, Collision Repair & Refinish,
is just one way that the SEMA Show is evolving to better and more accurately
reflect the growing presence of this market."

industry professionals each year, the SEMA Show is a comprehensive trade show
that features automotive parts and accessories in markets such as performance,
off-road, racing, restyling, light truck, powersports, collision repair &
refinish, mobile electronics and more. Buyers come from more than 100 countries
to meet with leading manufacturers and discover new markets and trends.

"Buyers are constantly
seeking opportunities to expand and grow," said MacGillivray. "At the
SEMA Show, buyers can easily discover the most relevant cross marketing
opportunities and see what the hot trends are. The floor sections make it easy
for buyers to home in on the products most relevant to their businesses, and
make the best use of their time at the SEMA Show."

In addition to the more

& Refinish section, the SEMA Show features 11 other floor sections that
