Truck Camper Adventure will be attending the 2016 Specialty Equipment Market Association (SEMA) Show in Las Vegas, NV. This year’s show will be held from Nov. 1-4.
SEMA is an annual trade show that brings manufacturers together with buyers from all over the world. The 2016 SEMA Show features more than 2,400 exhibiting manufacturing companies. The show consistently hosts more than 140,000 individuals, including nearly 70,000 buyers. About 25 percent of professionals who attend the show come from outside the United States. Over 3,000 media representing automotive and mainstream outlets will also be in attendance. The first show was held in 1963.
A major component of the SEMA Show is the educational program, which begins the Monday before the Show opens and continues until the end of the week. With dozens of seminars, workshops and sessions, the educational program is considered to be a premier conference in and of itself.
Manufacturers come to the SEMA Show to showcase their new products, while buyers come to the SEMA Show to discover the new products and trends. The SEMA Show is a place for industry professionals to connect and do business, and so the SEMA Show is a trade-only event that is NOT open to the general public.
Numerous vendors of interest to the truck camper community will be in attendance at the 2016 show. A partial list of these vendors includes Hellwig Products, Timbren Industries, Warn Industries, BF Goodrich, Nitto Tire USA Inc., Ramsey Winch, Curt Manufacturing, Blue Ox, Weathertech, Thule, Ford Motor Company, Chevrolet, and Cummins Incorporated.
This will be Truck Camper Adventure’s first SEMA Show. Look for a report of this show in the near future.
