The Specialty Equipment Market Association has announced it is cancelling the annual SEMA show for 2020. The show attracts thousands of people worldwide from the automotive industry and is held every year in Las Vegas.
Due to COVID-19 concerns, the Las Vegas Convention Center, one of the main facilities used by SEMA will not be available along with several other facilities and services needed to make the show happen. SEMA had been working on safety protocols to make the show happen.
SEMA is looking at options to host a virtual show. “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 circumstances prevent us from hosting the Show in November, we look forward to getting everyone together in 2021 for another outstanding event.”
Vendors will receive full refunds.
