SEMA 2020 Officially Canceled

by Michael Satterfield

SEMA announced officially that the 2020 show would be canceled, due to the on-going Covid-19 pandemic and concerns that the Las Vegas convention center would not be available for events. The cancelation also includes the associated APEX show which is held at the Sands Convention Center.

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. 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.
Chris Kersting, SEMA president and CEO
