2019 SEMA Show Preview: New Products Showcase

The Latest Product Offerings for 2019 and Beyond

The eye-catching project vehicles may generate the most buzz on the Show floor, but at the SEMA Show, there’s no better place to assess the state of the automotive aftermarket—and to stay abreast of all the latest tech and trends—than the New Products Showcase, located on the Skybridge between the Central and South Halls. Considered a first stop by many attendees, the Showcase is open for extended hours—8:00 a.m.–6:00 p.m. daily—to accommodate the needs of exhibitors and buyers alike who may be unable to visit during regular Show hours. It’s also next door to the Media Center, making it convenient for members of the press who need to make the most of their Show time.

Roughly 3,000 new products, arranged by category, are entered into the Showcase each year, and 2019 promises to offer an equally diverse range of offerings for virtually every enthusiast market segment. The Showcase can also connect exhibitors and buyers thanks to scanning tools that are available at booths around the Showcase. Using a scanner, attendees can obtain detailed descriptions and company contact information for each product, which can be printed on site for use during the week. What follows is a sampling of the newest products from 2019 SEMA Show exhibitors, and a glimpse into what this year’s Showcase holds in store for attendees.
