It's not too early to start preparing for the 2012 Specialty Equipment Market Association (SEMA) Show. And you're in luck: Attendee registration is open.
The annual trade-only event takes place Tuesday through Friday, Oct. 30-Nov. 2 in Las Vegas, Nev. To register, visit www.SEMAshow.com/register.
"Pre-registering online is the easiest and most economical way for buyers to obtain credentials to the SEMA Show," says Peter MacGillivray, SEMA's vice president of events and communications.
Buyers registering at www.SEMAshow.com/register before the early registration deadline pay just $25. They also will be sent their badges in the mail in advance of the event, allowing them to hit the show floor immediately when the show opens on Oct. 30.
The SEMA Show attracts more than 100,000 industry professionals from more than 100 countries each year. It is designed to bring manufacturers and buyers of automotive specialty parts and equipment together. For more details, visit www.SEMAshow.com.
