Every year the SEMA specialty parts and accessories industry trade show brings thousands of aftermarket and customization parts manufacturers and dealers under one roof where the latest and greatest aftermarket parts and accessories are showcased.
Although the main show is a week-long trade-only event, it ends with a bang with the SEMA Ignited Official After-Party and Car Show.
Who's Invited and Where Does it Take Place
Open to the public, this year’s SEMA Ignited takes place on Friday, November 2 from 3:00 PM to 10:00 PM at the Las Vegas Convention Center.
The After-Party and Show has been going on since 2013 and gets bigger each year.
This year, an estimated 20,000 custom truck and car enthusiasts and consumers are expected at the event to share in the concluding excitement of the SEMA trade show.
What is SEMA Ignited?
A fun time for adults and kids alike, SEMA Ignited is a car lover's festival featuring more than 100 of the custom project trucks and cars that will be on display during the trade-only part of the show.
As the final destination of SEMA Cruise, these amazing vehicles will be driven out of the Convention Center after the close of the trade show and parade around to the SEMA Ignited location to be on display for all to see.
This is where enthusiasts can talk to the car builders personally.
The evening will also include hundreds of manufacturer booths, Formula DRIFT demonstrations, automotive industry celebrity appearances, music, food booths, a beer garden, and much more.
