We have attended the SEMA (Specialty Equipment Manufacturers' Association) almost every year in the recent past. Since we have been attending, we have seen the automotive aftermarket industry at it's peak. Shortly afterward, we have seen the show reduce in size, matching the pace of the slow economy at that time.
However, for 2014, we felt a buzz throughout the event that we have not felt in the recent past. The numbers on both show participants and show exhibitors were up considerably over recent years. We expect that this growth and excitment will fuel the industry through the holiday season and into early summer.
Stay tuned to FollowMyBuild.com as we hope to have a large announcment around the 2015 SEMA Show.
