SEMA Installation and Gala Set for July

Apr 23, 2021

SEMA leadership, volunteers and industry members will gather in Las Vegas for the 2021 SEMA Installation and Gala on Friday, July 30, the organization confirmed.

The SEMA Installation & Gala recognizes and celebrates individuals who have made extraordinary contributions to the industry, the organization said, and has served as a formal gathering where new SEMA Hall of Fame inductees are introduced, incoming Board of Directors are sworn in and outgoing Board of Directors are honored.

This year’s event will take place for the first time in Las Vegas, Nevada, in the new West Hall of the Las Vegas Convention Center, SEMA said.

“SEMA has a deep history and connection with the city of Las Vegas,” said Chris Kersting, SEMA president and CEO. “We could not be more excited about celebrating the industry in Las Vegas and christening the West Hall with such a noteworthy event.”

The SEMA Installation & Gala will be one of the first events held in the West Hall since construction of the 1.4 million-square-foot facility was completed in January. The event, which is expected to include about 400 individuals, will also mark SEMA’s first mass gathering to take place in more than a year.

“I look forward to the SEMA Gala each year – even more so this year than any other year since it will be a reunion for our industry’s friends and family,” said Kersting. “The SEMA Installation Gala is important to the association, the members and the industry, and it’s about much more than just introducing new Hall of Fame members or recognizing our Board of Directors. The event is about community, family and celebration, with people who share a common passion and love for the industry.”

Details about the honorees (new Hall of Fame members and incoming Board of Directors) will be announced in May.
