The easiest way to meet that goal is to visit the New Products Showcase—buyers’ number-one destination at the Show. Located in the Skybridge between Central and South Halls, the Showcase is adjacent to the Media Center, making it convenient for members of the press as well. Inside, nearly 3,000 entries are organized by category. Attendees can use scanners to create personalized lists of products with detailed descriptions and the contact information needed for follow-up. The New Products Showcase is open extended hours from 8:00 a.m.–6:00 p.m. to help attendees make the most of their time at the Show. Take a look at the following preview of products you’ll find at the 2018 SEMA Show, and make the New Products Showcase your number-one destination this year.
