Unfortunately for SEMA fans, the Specialty Equipment Market Association announced that there will be no SEMA Show for 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Event organizers and industry members have been working tirelessly to make sure the show went on in November but decided that with the growing uncertainty and safety concerns it was the right call to pull the plug. SEMA expects the decision will bring much-needed clarity to an uncertain picture and will help exhibitors, attendees and partners plan accordingly.
However, SEMA will be working with industry members to determine interest levels on specific alternatives like a virtual trade show. More info on that in the near future.
“The SEMA Show is committed to furthering businesses in the automotive specialty equipment market, and to providing manufacturers and buyers with the best opportunity to connect, promote new products and discover new trends,” said Chris Kersting, SEMA president and CEO. “We appreciate the spirit, hard work and innovation our industry puts into the SEMA Show each year. While we are disappointed circumstances prevent us from hosting the Show in November, we look forward to getting everyone together in 2021 for another outstanding event.”
Full refunds for SEMA Show exhibitor booth deposits and attendee registration fees will be issued.
Updates will be posted to SEMAShow.com.
