SEMA Show rebrands collision repair segment

May 18, 2011

May 18, 2011 — SEMA Show is rebranding its collision repair section, now referring to it as “Collision Repair & Refinish,” event organizers recently announced.

The division has been growing and already includes 110 confirmed exhibitors for this year’s show, scheduled Nov. 1-4 in Las Vegas.

“The number of exhibitors and educational seminars for the collision repair and refinish market increases year after year,” said Peter MacGillivray, SEMA vice president of events and communications. “The new name, Collision Repair & Refinish, is just one way that the SEMA Show is evolving to better and more accurately reflect the growing presence of this market.”

Collision Repair & Refinish will be one of 12 floor sections at this year’s trade show. The event draws more than 100,000 industry professionals annually for the latest in automotive parts and accessories. Buyers come from more than 100 countries to network with manufacturers and industry peers and discover new trends.

“Buyers are constantly seeking opportunities to expand and grow,” MacGillivray said. “At the SEMA Show, buyers can easily discover the most relevant cross-marketing opportunities and see what the hot trends are. The floor sections make it easy for buyers to home in on the products most relevant to their businesses, and make the best use of their time at the SEMA Show.”
