...promote the safest environment we can and allow people to get in and out to the show in the most efficient and convenient way possible.

 

What are some other changes that we will see at SEMA 2021?

Last year, we looked at the idea of making all of the aisles one-way, but we determined that it would be burdensome and not practical on many levels. So, we decided to take some of our main aisles and broaden them, so that people can get more space and move around in a more suitable manner. So, you will find some wider aisles this year and more aisle space altogether.

 

We are also creating other areas where if people want to step out of the flow of traffic for a moment to regroup or find that next booth, they can do that.

 

For those who want to travel, we will now have access to an underground transit system that was invented by Elon Musk’s The Boring Company, with 60 cars running continuously. It will be able to move a lot of people to one of three stations, South Hall, West Hall and Central Hall.

 

Eventually, this system will be operated autonomously and take people to the Las Vegas Strip, Downtown Las Vegas and the airport as well. It will take a 15– to 20-minute walk and turn it into a two- to five-minute trip, so we are excited about it.
