Ground Transportation—Best Ways to Get to and From the Show

  Monorail
The Las Vegas Monorail is great for those staying at a hotel near a Monorail station. Trains run every seven minutes throughout the day and stop right in front of the LVCC.
   

Ground transportation improvements make commuting to the Las Vegas Convention Center (LVCC) during the 2018 SEMA Show easier than ever for attendees. As the single largest gathering of small businesses in America, the upcoming SEMA Show is expected to attract nearly 170,000 industry professionals to the Las Vegas Convention Center (LVCC), October 30–November 2.
