“SEMA Show exhibitors are the experts when it comes to knowing what trends to follow or which vehicles are the best for vehicle customization,” said Mike Spagnola, SEMA VP of OEM & Product Development Programs. “We’re grateful that SEMA Show exhibitors have voiced their picks and are excited to recognize winning automakers at the upcoming SEMA Show.”
The SEMA Award Program creates awareness for aftermarket products and epitomizes the ongoing collaboration SEMA has with automakers and aftermarket manufacturers to bring quality products to market. SEMA also helps aftermarket manufacturers with product development through the SEMA Garage, measuring sessions, 3-D printing and technology transfer.
