Finding Food During the SEMA Show

Some 60+ Options to Choose From

By Fredy Ramirez

  Food
The Members Lounge is a great option for lunch. Hot meals are available for purchase daily only in the North Hall Lounge from 11:30 a.m.–2:00 p.m, and Grab ’N’ Go beverages and sandwiches can be purchased during Show hours in both lounges.
   

Grabbing a good meal during the SEMA Show is important to maintaining the energy you need for a successful Show, and luckily, there are plenty of food options. The trick is to find something that fits the amount of time allotted for you to eat.

SEMA Vice President of Events Tom Gattuso puts it this way: “We know that your time at the Show is valuable, so we’ve worked closely with Centerplate and concessions companies all year long to provide food options that are high quality, reasonably priced, and can be picked up in an efficient manner.”

The Show offers a variety of concessions to choose from. Each part of the Las Vegas Convention Center offers its own selection. Outlined in the next couple of pages are your options and where they are located.

Member Lounges

One option for lunch is visiting the SEMA Members Lounge. Members Lounge–North is in Upper North Hall Room N251 and Members Lounge–South is at the east end of the Lower South Hall Lobby, Booth #46000. Both are exclusively for SEMA, SEMA Hall of Fame, Tire Industry Association and Society of Collision Repair Specialists members only. Members can sit down and enjoy a hot meal at the Members Lounge–North. Grab ’N’ Go lunches are available during Show hours Tuesday–Friday in both lounges. Both locations offer a place for a quick break, charging stations for phones and laptops and a professional atmosphere. The lounges make great rendezvous points and have private rooms available for meetings. Reserve yours in advance by visiting www.SEMAShow.com/mlmeetings.

Exhibitor Lunch and Appreciation Reception Monday

During setup days, SEMA staff will be handing out coupons to exhibitors for sandwich lunches. The process is simple: All you need to do is present your exhibitor badge and redeem your coupon at the nearest meal station to receive a sandwich and a bottle of water. The lunches are available November 4–5 from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m.

Exhibitors also won’t want to miss out on the Exhibitor Appreciation Reception on Monday night, November 4, at 5:00 p.m. Located just outside of Central Hall on Silver Drive, it’s a great time to get to know other exhibitors, enjoy live music and good food, and recharge for opening day the next morning. Best of all, it includes an exclusive preview of some of the most exciting vehicles you’ll see in this year’s Show.
