There are plenty of conventions, conferences, and other events for the auto industry and its related fields. But these days, it’s hard to beat the SEMA show when it comes to educational, business, and networking opportunities. Let’s look at everything you need to know about the upcoming SEMA 2022. 

About the SEMA Show

SEMA (short for the Specialty Equipment Market Association) bills itself as the top tradeshow for specialty auto equipment manufacturers and more traditional auto industry players.

With a variety of exhibits, educational classes, and fun and informational events, it’s both an extremely valuable professional event and a ton of fun at the same time! However, it’s crucial to note that this is a trade-only event for industry members, so no members of the general public are allowed to attend.
