Travel Planners includes this seal on all e-mail communications with SEMA exhibitors and attendees, as well as on their website. If you do not see this seal on a website or e-mail that promotes hotel rooms for the SEMA Show, it is not an official SEMA provider.
Hotels for the SEMA Show are going fast, and exhibitors and attendees of the November 2013 event are encouraged to start making room plans and reservations now. To help those making the trip to Las Vegas obtain a low-cost hotel room and support throughout the entire housing process, SEMA has partnered with Travel Planners—the official housing service for the 2013 SEMA Show.
Showgoers who make reservations through Travel Planners will benefit from the company's Lowest Rate Assurance. Travel Planners negotiates lowest-rate guarantees into every one of its hotel contracts. The company works with the hotel to meet or beat the reduced rate and passes it along to Showgoers. Even if reservations are set, the rate will be lowered automatically and the savings will be confirmed by e-mail. All that attendees and exhibitors have to do if they find a lower rate is contact Travel Planners. As long as the rate is for all of the dates of the stay, Travel Planners will get the price that is as good or better.

Show Management is increasingly aware of the amount of solicitations that Showgoers receive regarding hotel reservations for the week of the SEMA Show. While other options are available, Travel Planners is the only housing company that is backed by SEMA.
"Companies can book their rooms for the Show with confidence, knowing that their requests are handled by an official Show partner," said Peter MacGillivray, SEMA vice president of communications and events. "With the advantages of pre-negotiated prices and low-rate guarantee, Showgoers can make plans with the certainty that their rate is competitive."
