Innovation Direct™ ready to make it a November to Remember at SEMA and AAPEX Show 2010…
Hello, Juan C. Blanco, Innovation Direct™’s Director of Product Licensing, checking in with a report on the final stop of our 2010 trade show itinerary. Innovation Direct is pleased to confirm that we will once again be attending the leading U.S.-based trade shows of the automotive industry, SEMA 2010 and the AAPEX Show 2010. The events run semi-concurrently during the first week of November in Las Vegas, Nevada. The SEMA (Specialty Equipment Manufacturers Association) Show will take place November 2-5 at the Las Vegas Convention Center; AAPEX, meanwhile, will be housed at what has become its customary venue the last few years, November 2-4 at the Sands Exposition Center at the Venetian Hotel and Casino.
As per their official website, the SEMA Show attracts more than 100,000 industry leaders from the automotive field hailing from more than 100 countries. During last year’s edition of the proceedings, the SEMA Show attracted more than 50,000 domestic and international buyers. New products and innovations are certainly a significant part of the show’s focus, as over 1,500 new products were featured in the event’s New Product Showcase last year. 12 major sections make up the SEMA Show, allowing for the automotive, truck motorcycle, RV, and SUV markets to be well represented.
The AAPEX (Automotive Aftermarket Products Exposition) Show is the perfect partner show to SEMA, as the automotive aftermarket garners profits of approximately $395 billion annually, as per the show’s official website. Much like SEMA, AAPEX attracts visitors and exhibitors from all over the globe. In fact, over 50,000 total buyers visited the 2009 edition of the event.
As always, Innovation Direct™ looks forward to being a part of such an exciting productive trade show environment. Check back with the Innovation Direct™ Blog frequently for all future updates regarding the SEMA and AAPEX Shows!
