The Specialty Equipment Market Association (SEMA) Show priority space selection process concluded earlier this month, with nearly 2,000 exhibiting companies securing space for the upcoming event. The trade-only event will take place Oct. 30-Nov. 2 in Las Vegas.

“After the three-week space selection, we are more excited than ever for the upcoming SEMA show,” said Peter MacGillivray, SEMA vice president of events and communications, in a press release. “Exhibitors have great optimism for the show. They have made it clear that Las Vegas is the place they want to be in October and their plans are already well under way to showcase their newest innovations.”

The number of exhibitors in several segments has already surpassed the total number featured at last year’s show. Those sections include Hot Rod Alley, Racing & Performance, Restoration Marketplace and Wheels & Accessories.

Exhibitors will continue to sign up for the show up until the event takes place and new exhibitors will be added to the online floorplan as they are confirmed. Details about the 2012 SEMA Show, including information on how to attend and exhibit, are available at www.SEMAShow.com.
