DIAMOND BAR, Calif. – Registration to attend the 2015 SEMA Show is now available at SEMAShow.com/register. The annual trade show for the automotive accessories market is set for Nov. 3-6 in Las Vegas.
Registration is offered in three categories: attendee, exhibitor and media.
Attendee: Distributors, retailers, installers and buyers who will be meeting with exhibitors at the SEMA Show should register using the “attendee” link. Applicants may be required to submit proof of employment in the industry.
Beginning in May, attendees will be able to sign up for special events and seminars, including those offered by the Society of Collision & Repair Specialists (SCRS), Tire Industry Association (TIA) and more. Approved attendees who register before the early deadline in October will receive their badges in the mail.
Exhibitor: The exhibitor category is for company personnel working in the booths of exhibiting companies. To secure an exhibitor badge, individuals will need to have the unique password and user ID that was provided, via email, to the primary (or key) contact at the exhibiting company. The primary contact may register the entire staff at one time quickly and easily. Exhibitor badges are not to be used for non-employees, including contest winners, contractors and vendors. Domestic exhibitors (U.S./Canada) who register before the early deadline in October will receive their badges in the mail. International exhibitor badges will be available for pick-up on-site.
During registration, exhibitors also will be able to order complimentary tickets to the SEMA Industry Awards Banquet. Tickets to the banquet, which is attended by 3,000 show-goers and considered by many to be the industry’s premier celebration, sell for $50 each.
Media: Editors and journalists covering the SEMA Show can register for complimentary media credentials using the “media” link. Applicants may need to supply proof of media affiliation, such as bylined articles or business cards. All approved media will be able to pick up their credentials on-site in the SEMA Show Media Center, which includes exclusive services and amenities to assist with reporting from the event.
During registration, media are able to secure a ticket to the LTAA Media Preview, an exclusive event that debuted at the 2014 SEMA Show and is scheduled to take place Monday, Nov. 2, the day before the SEMA Show officially opens. Media can sign up for the event by checking the box for “LTAA Media Preview.”
“There are many advantages to registering early for the SEMA Show,” said Peter MacGillivray, SEMA vice president of events and communications. “Early application expedites the registration process, saves money and ensures that applicants are kept up-to-date of breaking show news.”
