While the tradeshow industry struggles to bring back visitors after Governor Steve Sisolak and the Nevada Democrats targeted the sector for destruction, the hits just keep coming. Ford, Hyundai, and GM have all pulled out of the November 2022 SEMA Show in Las Vegas, and several trade shows have started putting mask and COVID vaccination requirements in place for attendees again.
“We are proud to support the automotive aftermarket industry and collaborate closely with its members,” said Ford in an official statement. “However, we are taking a new approach to the SEMA show. Instead of our traditional display, we look forward to showcasing our winning portfolio of vehicles digitally online as well as at Ford events and shows.”
“GM has made the decision not to participate in the 2022 SEMA Show,” read an official statement. “The SEMA show has always inspired us, and accessories and performance parts remain an important part of our business.”
“Hyundai has been an active participant in the SEMA show for many years,” the company said in a statement. “For 2022, our strategy has focused on some specific vehicle launch strategy and media events, and in these plans, Hyundai will not have a corporate presence at SEMA.”
This is another major hit to our economy, courtesy of the Democrat party that killed the Tradeshow industry and our economy! Thanks Democrats!
