The numbers don’t lie. The 2011 Specialty Equipment Market Association (SEMA) Show was a huge success. A record 132,000 people attended the event, according to the Tire Industry Association (TIA), which sponsored the show’s Global Tire Expo section. There also were 61,000 buyers, also a record and close to 19% higher than last year.
Large independent dealers were out in force. Nearly half of the dealers on the Modern Tire Dealer 100 list, and nine out of the top 10, were in attendance. They accounted for 547 buyers.
The number of SEMA Show exhibitors was up, too. There were 2,142 exhibitors in all sections, up 12% compared to last year. The growth was even more significant at the Global Tire Expo: The 239 participating companies represented a 24% increase.
