Las Vegas, Nevada — The 2020 SEMA Show has officially been cancelled due to the pandemic and concerns that event facilities and services will be unavailable.
Both event organizers and industry members had been working hard to try and find a way for the show to run this November, however, due to the large uncertainty around running the event it was deemed inadvisable.
While the in-person element has been cancelled, recent SEMA Show survey results have shown possible interest in a virtual tradeshow with related live events. SEMA will be working with industry members to determine interest levels on specific alternatives.
“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 that 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
