SEMA Chairman of the Board

It is my pleasure to welcome more than 160,000 exhibitors, attendees and enthusiasts to the 2019 SEMA Show. This week-long event in Las Vegas celebrates the innovation, creativity and excitement of the automotive aftermarket. Thousands of exhibitors display an incredible array of products and technology. Amazing custom cars, modified trucks and unique displays showcase emerging trends and new business opportunities.

The SEMA Show is something special. It provides a glimpse into what captivates the minds and hearts of millions of automotive enthusiasts. The Show also reveals the aftermarket products and technology that enable innovative design, improved performance, enhanced vehicle functionality and high-quality vehicle restoration. It is a great place to learn about new products and discover things that can transform an automotive business.

I hope that you are able to experience all aspects of the SEMA Show. It is the culmination of millions of hours of design, development, manufacturing and other preparations by our exhibitors, builders, staff and suppliers. The New Products Showcase highlights many innovative new products, but there are thousands of other things to see and do across all of the exhibit spaces. Plan a full week to get the most from the Show.

We also gather at the SEMA Show to renew friendships, build new relationships, discuss common challenges, identify new opportunities and recognize the best in the business. This direct face-to-face interaction is the most valuable aspect of the Show. Check the SEMA Show schedule to take advantage of the many education sessions, networking receptions, awards programs and other events within the Show. Add the SEMA Show app to your phone now to have easy access to information when you need it.

We appreciate all of the people involved in making the SEMA Show the focal point of the automotive aftermarket industry. This great event depends on the participation of enthusiastic buyers and media and the hard work of our member manufacturers, distributors, retailers, installers, vehicle builders, marketers, service providers, suppliers and staff. We know that your time is valuable, and we hope that the 2019 SEMA Show exceeds your expectations and leads to a great year in 2020.

Thanks for your time, and please let us know where we can improve.
