SEMA Show Hotels Now Accepting Reservations
-- Rooms Booked Through Official SEMA Housing Services Guarantees Lowest Rates --

Diamond Bar, CA (March 13, 2013) - SEMA Showgoers may now secure hotel rooms from the official SEMA Housing Services at Available through Travel Planners, the reservations come with guaranteed low rates and perks such as no resort fees.

"We know that Showgoers are busy, and securing a hotel room shouldn't be a time-intensive job," said Peter MacGillivray, SEMA VP of events and communications. "By using the official SEMA Housing Services, attendees and exhibitors can rest assured that they are working with a legitimate company and paying the lowest rates."

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 SEMA to make it easy and affordable for industry professionals to attend the Show. Among the benefits of using Travel Planners are:

  • Guaranteed low rate: The housing bureau actively monitors to ensure that they are offering the lowest possible rates. If guests do find a lower rate, Travel Planners will match or beat the lower rate.
  • No hidden fees: Many hotels in Las Vegas advertise lower rates and charge a "resort fee" on top of that rate. SEMA and Travel Planners have worked with hotels to waive such fees. The price quoted through Travel Planners is all-inclusive and will not have other fees added to it.
  • Exclusive room blocks: SEMA and Travel Planners lock in prime blocks of rooms at host hotels. As a result, rooms may appear to be sold out to the rest of the world when in reality they are being held for SEMA Showgoers who go through the SEMA Housing Services.
  • Extra level of service: Because reservations made through Travel Planners identify guests as SEMA Showgoers, the hotel staff provides a higher level of service and helps direct guests to Show-related programs such as free shuttles. Guests also receive confirmation numbers in advance of the Show and can get hotel help from Travel Planners staff at the SEMA Show.

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.
