In addition to 11 designated floor sections, the 2013 SEMA Show will include three different areas where First-Time and Featured Exhibitors can be found.
“In order for us to accommodate the more than 2,400 companies exhibiting at the 2013 SEMA Show, we’ve expanded our footprint,” said Peter MacGillivray, SEMA vice president of communications and events.
He added, “Collectively, the First-Time and Featured Exhibitor areas include hundreds of new and innovative manufacturers that represent allmarkets in the industry. These are must-see areas for everyone in the industry.”
While the SEMA Show has included a First-Time and Featured Exhibitors area in previous years, 2013 marks the first time that the show will include these three areas:
Upper South Hall, east end near the New Products Showcase: This is the same area where First-Time and Featured Exhibitors were located in 2012.
Bridge, between Central and South Halls: Many Showgoers will know this area because of the Media Center, the Center for International Commerce and the Show Office. For 2013, the Media Center will move to N109 (Meeting Rooms to the east of the Grand Lobby); and the Center for International Commerce will be located in N255 (second floor above the Grand Lobby).
LVH South Pavilion area, near Central Hall: The LVH is located across the street, but adjacent to the north side of North Hall. Several exhibitors will be located in the Pavilion area of the LVH, along with General Registration.
The 2012 SEMA Show was ranked No. 7 on the TSNN Top 250, with 2,250 exhibitors and 135,000 attendees on a nearly 1 million net square foot showfloor at the Las Vegas Convention Center.
