SATA always has the same great spot at SEMA, and every year they pull the trigger and go all-in.
This year, people who visited the SEMA booth in the North Hall saw new product releases, demonstrations, and world-class painters from all over the planet to create original art all within a German-themed booth.
Fifty years ago, in 1969, "Peace, Love and Music" was the cool motto of the "Summer of Love," when hippies adorned with flowers and tie-dyed garb danced and celebrated at the fabled Woodstock Music Festival. Commemorating the 50th anniversary of this iconic concert, SATA recognized the cultural impact of the era all within a special edition spray gun.
This special edition gun can be ordered with sample RPS multipurpose cups. The Hippie spray gun is available in “I” and “O” versions with nozzle sizes ranging from 1.2 to 1.4, both RP and HVLP technology versions come in Standard only, according to SATA.
This year the theme was Oktoberfest, and Tony Larimer wore lederhosen himself to get into the Bavarian mood. “Since our company is based in Germany, the goal was to essentially bring a little Germany here, so we brought all of the various Bavarian aspects of Germany here, and we’re delighted with the results,” he said. “We always want to feature a booth with a lot of things going on that will engage and entertain people. I think we hit a home run with this one based on the feedback we’ve received.”
At the show, SATA also offered discounts on www.satausagear.com — strictly devoted to SATA gear and promotional items for sale. “We offer something for everyone,” Coordinator of the SATA USA gear Katrina Jorgensen said. “Now that we have the clothing website, every style and size is always available, and if an item is on backorder, it doesn’t take long to get the product delivered to the customer’s door.”
Airbrush artist Franny Drummond was invited from his PaintZoo Studios in Langhorne, PA, to create portraits of classic rock stars such as Bob Dylan, Jim Jimi Hendrix, and Janis Joplin, to name a few.
