SEMA Ignited Offers Chance to See Great Custom Vehicles

Although the Specialty Equipment Market Association (SEMA) show in Las Vegas is one of the biggest events of the year, the main part of the festivities is only open to people in the industry who want to market their automotive accessories. The good news is that SEMA opens up the viewing of specialty vehicles with the SEMA Ignited aftershow, being held this year on Friday, November 3 starting at 3 p.m. on the Las Vegas Convention Center Gold Lot. That’s where you’ll be able to see all the cool builds from the show, a formula drift exhibition, live music and enjoy some food trucks. You can go to to purchase tickets and get more information. For all your local Las Vegas automotive needs, visit any of the Chapman Las Vegas dealerships.

Battle of Builders Culminates in Aftershow

As anyone who has ever attended the SEMA show can attest, one of the highlights is the battle of the builders, where specialty shops and solo artists create some outrageous concept vehicles. The Battle of the Builders culminates at SEMA Ignited, where all the finalists are spotlighted and the winner is announced. It gives fans and auto lovers a chance to interact with the builders and see just what goes into creating these spectacular vehicles, including the stories that inspired these fantastic creations. There’s also a “Young Gun” category for builders who are under age 27, encouraging young people to get an early start with their automotive works of art. The top 12 builds that are voted on during the SEMA show will lead the cruise over to the SEMA Ignited area.

Special Requirements for SEMA Show

Although SEMA Ignited is open to everyone, the actual SEMA show is only available to people who work in the automotive aftermarket industry. Documentation is required to get an entry badge unless you have attended previous shows. The SEMA show begins October 31 at the Las Vegas Convention Center and is designed to showcase the premier automotive specialty products available from around the globe. It is the premier show of its kind in the world and auto industry enthusiasts begin preparing for next year’s show almost as soon as the current event is concluded.
