The Specialy Equipment Market Association (SEMA) Show is the premier automotive specialty products trade event in the world, and it is not open to the general public. Every year, SEMA draws the industry's brightest minds and hottest products to one place, the Las Vegas Convention Center, to join in a week of both excitement and exhaustion. As part of the AAIW, the SEMA Show attracts more than 100,000 industry leaders from more than 100 countries for unlimited profit opportunities in the automotive, truck and SUV, marine, and RV markets. SEMA features more than two million square feet of exhibits. If you do the math and walk up and down every aisle of the show, it could push more than 35 miles! Talk about a marathon. That's the main reason for the week-long venture; you just can't see it all in a couple days.
The displays are segmented into 11 sections, while a new products showcase features more than 2,000 newly introduced parts, tools, and components. In addition, the SEMA Show provides attendees with educational seminars, product demonstrations, special events, networking opportunities, and more. This year, we wandered the halls aimlessly with no plans, except to see as much cool stuff as possible. So, we snapped pics of the hottest trucks, chicks, and products, to bring them directly to you. Trust us, it wasn't easy! Enjoy.
