  The Business Management track set for the 2010 SEMA Show consists of 15 sessions.

This 2010 SEMA Show seminar discusses the different types of intellectual property, affordable ways to protect the property and various resources that can help owners control costs while avoiding pitfalls.

Mark your calendars, and attend the seminar!
