10/25/2018 by I-CARIn just a few short days, several I-CAR® staff from both our Hoffman Estates and Tech Center locations will make their way to the annual SEMA (Specialty Equipment Market Association) show, the world’s largest trade-only industry event hosting more than 160,000 individuals from all over the world.
Held October 30—November 2, 2018 at the Las Vegas Convention Center, SEMA is a place for industry professionals to connect and do business, with more than 2,400 exhibiting manufacturing companies. There’s even well more than 100 “celebrity appearance,” from the cast of Velocity’s “Wrench’d” to drivers of Monster Trucks and MMA fighters. Its shear size is a sight to behold, and also a reflection of the growth and innovation of the industry.
For I-CAR, SEMA is the ideal venue to connect with all segments of the inter-industry – who are present and exhibiting - and share our training products, programs and expertise that have helped lead the industry through our mission of advancing complete, safe and quality repairs for the ultimate benefit of the consumer.
In our Outdoor Demo area (located at the SEMA Collision Repair & Refinish Stage, booth number 64200), you’ll see our educators put advanced welding techniques into action, with hands-on, free live demonstrations – all with the goal of showing the changing in joining technologies – many of which are required to repair today’s advanced vehicles.
Want to be the first to know the latest in collision repair trends? Each and every day during SEMA, we’re conveying and facilitating expert panels, bringing industry experts together to discuss everything from adhesives technology to Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) and real-world collision challenges impacting our work today, and into the future.
Several of I-CAR’s staff are also leading or participating in panels and forums with colleagues from throughout the inter-industry, all with focus on bettering the industry for the important work ahead of us.
Inside the halls of SEMA, our team stands ready to share how I-CAR's knowledge and solutions help you build a stronger business and improve customer satisfaction and profits.
Finally, we wouldn’t be a leading training organization if we didn’t come prepared to offer a variety on classes during SEMA.
