If you ask most car enthusiasts about SEMA they will more than likely tell you that it is on their bucket list of must see events during their life time. The reason that most of those enthusiasts haven't had the chance to visit this spectacular event is that it is not open to the public. SEMA (Specialty Equipment Market Association) is a trade show, meaning that only people involved with the industry can participate. This is where anyone and everyone that is involved with aftermarket products for vehicles all come together to show of their latest and greatest wares. Its a place where new ideas are finally revealed, long awaited products are finally released, and many new relationships between companies are created. Endless meeting rooms and board rooms are set up to cater for the numerous negotiating between manufacturers, suppliers and retail businesses. Oh, did I mention that this is all held under the glittery lights of Las Vegas, Nevada once a year?
What better place to showcase the hottest products on some of the worlds most spectacular cars. The Las Vegas Convention Centre hosts this massive event over 4 days. Most people that attend say that it is not enough to take in all that is on offer. We love it because it gives us a chance to meet face to face with a lot of our overseas suppliers and create relationships with new ones. It's such fantastic place to share new ideas and to see what is possible now and coming up in the future.
Speaking of what we have coming up in the future, SEMA was the perfect place to confirm details about our upcoming Ford Mustang range of products. Exciting times ahead for those with one on order. Ours will be arriving soon and we can't wait to show you guys what we can do with them.
There was still quite a lot going on with GM and their LS engines, did I mention that Edelbrock intake? Check out our facebook page for that. So many great options, and so nice to see that our work is being recognised around the world, with many brands recognising who we are and what we do. It's so great to catch up with so many familiar faces to discuss, not only our products, but what we have seen and the ideas that inevitably flow from that.
Have a flick through some of the awesome-ness that was SEMA 2015 at the top and bottom of this page, and let us know what you're looking forward to seeing come through our workshop the most.
