An Igniting SEMA Show After-Party

Since its inception in 1967, the SEMA Show has remained a trade-only event open exclusively to industry professionals. To give the general public a chance to share in the excitement, the association hosts SEMA Ignited at the conclusion of the final day, featuring a parade of the hundreds of cars and trucks displayed at the Show in the SEMA Cruise. Last year’s SEMA Ignited also featured music, drift demonstrations, celebrities, iconic builders and displays. The media outlets below were among the many that documented the official SEMA Show after-party. If you haven’t attended SEMA Ignited, read on to see what the media is saying about the event.
