SEMA Confirms Health & Safety Plans for 2021 Event

Dear Valued SEMA Show Attendee,
Thank you for your continued support of the 2021 SEMA Show. We are looking forward to welcoming the industry back to Las Vegas in November.
There has been a lot in the news as of late and we want to assure you that we are 100% committed to hosting a successful event in Las Vegas. SEMA is working with Nevada authorities to produce an outstanding Show consistent with local health and safety requirements. We are confident we will deliver an event where industry members can connect, discover new products, and do business November 2-5.
We wanted to reiterate the policies for the two events that make up the Automotive Aftermarket Industry Week that happens in Las Vegas.
SEMA is monitoring the evolving COVID-19 landscape and expects to have details in the coming weeks about what requirements will be in place for the SEMA Show. While subject to change, Nevada currently requires masks for indoor events such as trade shows. Nevada does not require proof of vaccination for trade shows.
The co-owners of AAPEX – the Auto Care Association and the Automotive Aftermarket Suppliers Association (AASA) – recently announced that they will require proof of a COVID-19 vaccination or a negative COVID PCR test be administered prior to arrival in order to attend their 2021 event at the Venetian Expo & Caesars Forum. AAPEX co-owners are also evaluating the potential for onsite testing for those unable to be vaccinated or to obtain a negative PCR test prior to the show. These measures will be administered through a third-party verification platform and on-site screening. Additionally, while subject to change, as of July 30, 2021, Nevada is requiring masks for all indoor events in Las Vegas. AAPEX will announce more details in the near future. AAPEX’s requirements apply only to the AAPEX event and not for the SEMA Show.
Successful events are currently taking place in Las Vegas and our partners throughout the city are prepared to host our industry. The Las Vegas Convention Center, which was recently awarded the GBAC Star Facility Accreditation in recognition of superior health and safety practices implemented at its facility. Our Hotel partners are also implementing similar measures to ensure a safe and productive stay during your time at the Show.
In addition, SEMA is adding its own measures, including wider aisles to provide more space to move around the show, reconfigured registration areas, and an expanded campus that allows the Show to realign exhibitor sections and give attendees an optimal environment in which to network and do business. Visit https://www.semashow.com/health-and-safety to learn more about the measures in place for the SEMA Show.
Currently we have strong support from more than 1,600 exhibitors and a pre-registration of tens of thousands of industry buyers ready to make this year’s Show a success. Events taking place right now are reporting high levels of exhibitor and attendee satisfaction. We expect the same when we gather in Las Vegas in a few months.
We want to make sure you have the latest information at all times. Please be sure to use SEMA’s official communications, semashow.com, SEMA eNews and sema.org as your trusted sources for the most up-to-date and accurate SEMA Show information.
We are looking forward to a great event and are excited you are a part of it! If you have any questions, please contact the Show Department at semashow@sema.org or (909) 396-0289.

News from SEMA

We are vigilant in our commitment to delivering an in-person trade show that the industry can rely on in November. We will follow all mandates that are required to host the 2021 SEMA Show, as determined by the Clark County Commission, Southern Nevada Health District, and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Requirements may change, but currently all individuals in Las Vegas – vaccinated or not – are required to wear masks in public indoor settings. Masks are also required to be worn by all individuals on public transportation and in transportation hubs, and it is recommended that those who are not vaccinated continue wearing masks and follow social distancing while in public.
