There are few trade shows on the planet that can rival the SEMA (Specialty Equipment Market Association) show which is held in Las Vegas. It’s beyond huge and fills the floor space of six Las Vegas sized convention centers and their parking lots with everything from tools, to tires. High-end supercars, custom builds, Mad-Max style creations, and ATVs can be found. There is even a power sports pavilion where hot new products that will soon find their way to trails near you make their debut.

Every industry has its annual conventions, trade shows, or expo. It’s a chance to network with fellow industry insiders, preview new products, check up on the competition, and generally have fun for a couple days all under the guise of “work”. Besides the show there’s the nightly debauchery with all manner of temptations and many attendees flock to the usual dens of gyrating decadence as pulsating neon signs draw them in like moths to a bug light.
