A Message From Nate Shelton

SEMA Chairman of the Board

A Message From Nate SheltonOnce again, it’s “Showtime.” It’s hard to believe another year has come and gone, and we are once again on our way to Las Vegas. What’s not hard to believe is the excitement, passion and anticipation that is already building around this year’s Show.

This year, for most of us, 2013 has been a fairly lack-luster business year but all of us are working toward 2014 being that stellar year we all so greatly deserve. A great 2014 all begins with the 2013 SEMA Show—the Greatest Automotive Show on Earth!

As SEMA chairman of the board, I am excited about seeing all of you at this year’s Show. I am also excited to see what the many new displays are going to look like, and what fabulous new project cars and custom builds will debut. But what excites me the most is what we will see in creative, innovative and fascinating new products. This is what SEMA is all about, and I know you will be bringing your A game.

Two things that are must-sees at this year’s Show—for both attendees and exhibitors—are two of the many great benefits brought to you by your association. The first, the Vehicle Technology Center—located in the Grand Lobby of the Las Vegas Convention Center—is set to help the industry understand the latest, cutting-edge technologies and, ultimately, to help you develop, design and create new products.

Second, I would be remiss if I failed to suggest that all of you go by the SEMA Data Co-op booth #20579 and have Jon Wyly and his team show you how getting your product data organized through them will increase sales and grow your business.

Wow—we have a lot to see and a lot to do! I know all of you are just as excited as I am about this Show, so let’s make this year’s trip to Las Vegas the best SEMA Show of our lives. See you there!


Nate Shelton
SEMA Chairman of the Board
