Online and Just in Time: SEMA 2020 Becomes SEMA360

Written by
SEMA’s Vice President of Events Tom Gattuso and his team tried to make SEMA 2020 happen, but when it looked impossible, they started developing SEMA360, a 100% virtual trade show.

“Get your workspace ready for five days focused on new products and feature vehicles. Make sure you have a reliable computer. Prepare a spot on your hard drive to download brochures and sell sheets from manufacturers. Check your internet connection. Have a camera, microphone and speakers on your computer so you can participate in optional video chats.

 

"Consider getting blue light glasses to ease the strain on your eyes. A comfortable chair will make the experience much more enjoyable. Have a plan. Remember to schedule breaks when you get up and walk around and stretch your hands and fingers. Also, block times on your calendar to participate in the seminars you don’t want to miss, and for browsing the New Products Showcase, Builder Showcase and Manufacturer Showcase pages.”

 

No name badges, no Cirque de Soleil shows, no monster buffets and no industry cocktail parties until next year---hopefully. Say goodbye to SEMA 2020 and hello to SEMA360.
