Every year, the New Products Showcase serves as a resource for manufacturers to advertise their latest and greatest innovations. One of the top SEMA Show attractions for buyers and media alike, it’s no surprise that the number of entries this year surpassed 3,000 in 16 categories ranging from street-performance, racing and off-roading to mobile-electronics, interior and exterior products.

A panel of automotive professionals selected one winner and two runners-up from each category, which were announced at the New Products Breakfast held before the opening of the 2016 SEMA Show. Congratulations to all the companies that were recognized during the breakfast and to all that participated in this year’s Showcase.
