What Is the SEMA Show?

If you are a seasoned auto parts seller, we don’t need to tell you anything about SEMA. In the unlikely case that you haven’t heard of or even attended the show yet, let us fill you in.

The SEMA (Specialty Equipment Market Association) show is a must-attend event for all automotive businesses, whether you are an established auto parts seller or a newbie just tapping into the market. It’s the place to discover the latest product innovations from trusted and up-and-coming exhibitors, learn about cutting-edge custom vehicle trends, and participate in over 99 free expert skill-enhancing education sessions.

Side note: SEMA Show vs. SEMA Fest

The SEMA trade-only show brings together business experts, automotive industry leaders, and large eCommerce players to provide insights into the current state of the automotive specialty equipment industry. It is not open to the general public. For more information, please visit semashow.com.

SEMA Fest is a two-day festival, open to everyone, which will take place after the SEMA Show on November 3 – 4, 2023 at the Las Vegas Festival Grounds. This is an opportunity for avid automotive enthusiasts to tap into the US car culture and enjoy custom cars and truck demonstrations, music, food, art, and all things automotive.

When Will SEMA 2023 Kickoff?

This year, the SEMA Show will take place on October 31 – November 3, 2023.

Where Will It Be?

Las Vegas Convention Center, 3150 Paradise Road, Las Vegas, NV 89109.
