"Our mission from the very beginning has been to facilitate broad, open distribution of product data throughout the industry with the goal of growing sales and market size," said Jon Wyly, CEO of the SDC. "By providing free unlimited exports to SEMA members, we will remove all obstacles for data receivers while providing a great reason to join SEMA and enjoy other benefits of membership. With free data exports available, SEMA members can power their business systems and web sites more affordably than ever.”

"What a great new reason for resellers to join SEMA. Not only will we save our members up to $1,200 each year through this program, but we’ll also help them get more out of their industry trade association,” said Nathan Ridnouer, vice president of councils and membership at SEMA.
