The show acts as an annual epicenter of automotive business, trends and culture

The annual Specialty Equipment Market Association (SEMA) Show was held across November 1-4, featuring more than 1,900 exhibiting companies and nearly 65,000
buyers across all four Las Vegas Convention Center halls.
SEMA Show industry attendees had access to thousands of the newest automotive aftermarket products from start-ups and iconic exhibitors, debuts from automakers, hundreds of custom vehicle builds, interactive experiences and demonstrations, celebrity appearances, extensive networking opportunities, and 70-plus education sessions led by top industry experts.
Numerous automakers returned with larger exhibitor displays that not only provided more space to enrich their activations on the Show floor, but also help enhance their exposure.
Also returning this year was the dedicated SEMA Electrified area in the North Hall, showcasing electric vehicles and products designed for modifying them or converting ICE vehicles to electric power.
An expanded SEMA Overland Experience featured highly modified adventure-focused builds and trends that can add new profit centres for aftermarket businesses.
Products on display included rooftop tents, awnings, portable kitchen systems, and much more.
Other Show highlights included a new advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS) showcase, which provided attendees with experts and resources for modifying vehicles equipped with the high-tech safety features.
eBay Motors presented its eBay Motors Experience, featuring drift ride-alongs and other demonstrations, and Optima Batteries debuted its new Optima Unleashed experience to host the Ultimate Street Car Invitational during Show hours.
Some of the automotive industry’s premier artists also exhibited their creations in the SEMA Show Art Walk, and for the first time ever, Chip Foose provided the official art for the 2022 SEMA Show.
SEMA Ignited also returned on November 4, giving consumers a chance to glimpse some of the vehicles and excitement from the world-famous trade-only SEMA Show.
“The SEMA Show provides exhibitors a superior opportunity to connect and develop relationships with partners, buyers, distributors, and more, not just on the Show floor but also through activations, industry receptions, banquets, and awards presentations,” SEMA Vice President of Events, Tom Gattuso, said.
“Small businesses and American manufacturing are the engines that power our economy, and the industry is back at full strength. As a reflection of the industry, the SEMA Show is the perfect showcase for both entrepreneurialism and American ingenuity. Quite simply, nowhere else can you witness this collection of small businesses and automotive passion, and build connections with other business leaders.”
The SEMA Launch Pad finale, SEMA Industry Awards Banquet and the SEMA Best New Products Awards also highlighted the industry’s best and brightest.
