It’s the first of November, and that means The SEMA Show in Las Vegas is underway. This not-open-to-the-public event is the premier automotive specialty products trade event in the world. It draws the industry’s hottest products to one place, the Las Vegas Convention Center. Last year, it drew more than 50,000 domestic and international buyers. Editor John Grafman is there to cover the show, and he provides us with some early glimpses of what it’s all about.
