What to Expect at the 2021 SEMA Show

Sep 30, 2021

SEMA President and CEO Chris Kersting joined THE SHOP to provide an update on preparations for the 2021 SEMA Show, scheduled for Nov. 2-5 in Las Vegas, Nevada.

At the time of the interview, Kersting confirmed that there are over 28,000 resellers and 1,300 exhibiting companies currently registered for the show.

“After almost a two-year hiatus, we understand that the SEMA Show is viewed as highly important to so many companies as we head into 2022,” said Kersting. “We’re glad to see so many resellers registered for the show. They are eager to check out the industry’s latest innovations and trends.”

During the interview, Kersting noted that SEMA will be following the health and safety requirements issued by the Nevada health authorities. Additionally, the Las Vegas Convention Center has installed medical-grade air filtration and ventilation systems throughout the facility and has achieved a GBAC (Global Bio-risk Advisory Council) Star Certified rating. Hand sanitizing stations will also be placed throughout the show floor and crews will be cleaning and sanitizing high-traffic areas daily.

The Convention Center has also expanded. The addition of the new West Hall has added 25% more show space, making room for wider aisles, more places to network and navigating the show more easily.
