I wish I could stay till Thrusday, but someone else is footing the bill, so i am not arguing. I will be wearing a White Polo style shirt with the Stevenson Motorsports logo on the front. Not my choice either. I don't like polo shirts.

invitation only and you must own a business to be invited or go...also you have to be connected to the business. I.E,employed or representing.

I had worked a collision shop for years before I went...then the wife and I started mine and we went last year and again this year.

Tim, can you fit me in a Carry-on?

I'm not sure if i'd fit in one of those over-head compartments though...

Or you could say I work for you & call me the "Shop Bitch" if that would get me a Ticket!

BTW, It was Great meeting you in person finally! You've done some really nice work down there! I hope to come down, have a few drinks & hang with you & Fester again some time.

I seem to remember seeing a Bay Area Volksrods Garage business card, how hard would it be to make it an actual business out there? A buddy of mine owns and runs Rob's Restorations in Keller, TX a listed business but he generally only works on his own cars.

Probably not that hard to get in , based on the number of people going.
Should be an application or something on their site.

http://www.semashow.com/main/main.as...OWcom/HomePage

The SEMA Show and AAPEX are trade-only events and only qualified members of the automotive aftermarket are permitted to attend. The following categories do not qualify to attend:
  • Accounting Firms
  • Consumers
  • Freight Providers
  • Graphics companies non-automotive
  • Exhibit Installation/Dismantle Companies
  • Insurance
  • Law Firms
  • Modeling agent/agencies
  • Packaging
  • Printers
  • Software companies non-automotive specific
  • Travel Agencies
  • Any non-automotive company

I'd be worried that if I had a business license and didn't do much business some day the IRS may come sniffing around and tax you for the last 5 years based on the revenue they assumed you made......

Besides being a related business, you also have to be a SEMA member to go to the show......... I don't remember how much SEMA membership costs..... it's been a few years

I was able to attend last year's SEMA, which was a first time for me. Quite an interesting experience being in Vegas during Halloween...
The SEMA show blew my mind. IIRC, 1 million square feet of nothing but car stuff. I didn't really care for the AAPEX set up. Other than seeing some new tool companies, it was a waste of time.

I got back in late Thursday night. It was a blast. Saw and talked to a Few great designers. So much car stuff there it was mind blowing. But after a while it all started to bend together. I did see a lot of other company's using each others products to promote their own stuff. In other words started seeing a lot of the same things.
I did manage to spend a nice bit of my boss's money. Bought some new equipment of a couple of our shops, you know, show "show Specials".
Now I can't wait till PRI, I will be there the 11th though the 14th. Wish I could get there earlier but I have to work sometime.
