From companies exhibiting their latest and greatest inventions, to buyers from across the globe, the SEMA Show is one of the busiest and most important times of the year for those in the automotive industry.
For those of you that are unfamiliar, the SEMA Show is a trade-only event – meaning, if you aren't in the automotive industry, essentially, you can't attend.
Each year it draws an insane amount of attendees. For 2018, the number continues to grow, with an estimated 150,000 people in attendance.
It's a collection of some of the most incredible vehicle builds in the country. It's the debut event for thousands of innovative new products. It's probably the only place you can turn your head one way and see Ken Block, and turn it the other way and spot a modified wide-body Lamborghini.

For consumers, the SEMA Show is also the holy grail of automotive events –but for different reasons. With plenty of celebrity autograph signings, seminars to attend, and (of course) incredible builds to see, there is no shortage of things to do.
