The automotive aftermarket is a $39 billion industry filled with both opportunities and challenges. SEMA Show Education Days will help arm attendees with the information they need to grow their businesses and advance their careers.
According to education session attendees surveyed after last year’s event:
- 79% said SEMA Show Education Days was the best place to get new ideas.
- 72% said attendance was the best way to keep up with the latest industry trends.
- 87% (nearly nine out of 10) rated the education they received at the SEMA Show as “excellent” or “good.”
For those who have registered for this year’s education sessions, take the important next step: show up! You can’t benefit from what you don’t know. Exciting new first-time tracks and sessions are planned for this year’s SEMA Show, including “5 Ways to Increase Your Cash Flow for 2017,” led by a CPA who will tune attendees into the practices and cutting-edge back-office technologies that will help them with the most important task any business owner has—keeping the cash flowing in instead of out.
A new “Builders” track is stacked with sessions on how participants can take advantage of a fast-growing industry segment focused on trucks, off-road vehicles, sports/compacts and restoration.
In addition, superstar bloggers, including ChrisFix, EricTheCarGuy and Jason Fenske will offer their insights on how attendees can take advantage of social media to grow their businesses. Also, don’t miss the “Working With YouTube and Facebook Stars to Reach the Next Generation of Automotive Enthusiasts” session.
This is just the beginning of what’s new this year. The 2016 SEMA Show is where attedees will get all the information and advice they need to prosper in the 21st-century aftermarket industry. Be there!
