Diamond Bar, California — The US-based Specialty Equipment Market Association (SEMA) has decided to cancel the 2020 edition of the event due Covid-19 and the uncertainty it presents for a major trade show.
"Without reasonable assurance that the experience could be reliably delivered, the announcement is being made to help exhibitors, attendees and partners plan appropriately," Tom Gattuso, SEMA VP of events, and Warren Kosikov, SEMA VP of sales, said in a letter to exhibitors.
The 2020 SEMA Show was scheduled to be held 3-6 Nov at the Las Vegas Convention Center.
"The SEMA Show is committed to furthering businesses in the automotive specialty equipment market," SEMA president and CEO Chris Kersting said.
“While we are disappointed circumstances prevent us from hosting the Show in November, we look forward to getting everyone together in 2021 for another outstanding event."
Held annually in Las Vegas, SEMA Show brings together automotive aftermarket manufacturers, OEMs, distributors and retailers.
