Exhibitor badges for booth personnel at the 2015 SEMA Show are available at www.SEMAShow.com/register. Each exhibiting company is given a complimentary allotment based on their booth size, and additional badges may be purchased for $25.

Badges must be secured by the individual designated as the exhibitor’s key contact and are to be used only for company staff and booth personnel, as well as translators, celebrities, models and booth vehicle builders.

Other badge types are available for the following groups and should not be registered as exhibitors:

  • Exhibitor-Appointed Contractors (EAC). Third-party contractors providing services to exhibitors are required to fill out the Exhibitor-Appointed Contractor Agreement, where they will be asked to provide proof of insurance. This includes, but is not limited to: an installation company, exhibit builder, sound and lighting company, production company, model or hostess service, florist, computer rental or detailer. Learn more through the Exhibitor-Appointed Contractor Rules.
  • Feature Vehicle Owners. While Feature Vehicle applications are submitted by exhibitors prior to the SEMA Show, badges for feature vehicle drivers are distributed on site. At the SEMA Show, feature vehicle owners will check in their vehicle before going to registration, where they can purchase up to two badges for $25 each.
  • Contest Winners. Exhibitors who host a contest that results in attendance to the SEMA Show must register their contest and adhere to the promotion rules listed in the application. Winners' badges must then be secured through Show Management as noted on the application. 
  • Advertising/Marketing Contractors. Outside advertising/marketing consultants or agencies must apply for credentials using the “Attendee” link at www.SEMAShow.com/register. Applicants may be required to provide proof of industry affiliation and an established partnership with one or more exhibiting companies. Credentials will allow applicants to represent their exhibiting clients at the Show, and are not to be used to solicit new business.

Show Management makes active efforts to screen all registration applicants in order to provide the industry with the best possible environment to connect buyers and sellers, while still keeping the process simple for qualified individuals. Those caught misrepresenting themselves or assisting in falsifying information run the risk of being banned from the Show.

For questions and information regarding who does and does not qualify to receive exhibitor badges, contact Customer Service at 866-229-3687. Exhibit space is still available at www.SEMAShow.com/buyabooth.
