With SEMA and AAPEX just around the corner, many attendees are starting to finalize their plans for the show. From after-parties and off-site events, traveling during SEMA can sometimes be a major pain in the ass!
Don’t worry, we have you covered!
This year SEMA Showgoers are being encouraged to use hotel shuttles and the Las Vegas Monorail to get to and from the SEMA Show in Las Vegas, as parking will be impacted by major construction projects at the Las Vegas Convention Center.
“We’re encouraging Showgoers to plan in advance and take advantage of the time-saving and low-cost transportation options that are available,” said Tom Gattuso, SEMA VP of Events. “These alternative options are easy to use and will make the overall Show experience much more positive.”
