SEMA 2014 Show Photos

The 2014 SEMA Show has officially ended. The booths are being dismantled, the cars loaded onto trailers, and 130,000 people are heading home after the 4-day event.

If you are not familiar with SEMA, it is an annual trade show for the automotive aftermarket industry. This was our 3rd year attending the show, and it was a very memorable one!

We took plenty of photos of this year’s show, which featured approximately 2,500 exhibitors and over 1,500 vehicles on display. We will be profiling many of these cars in upcoming posts, so be sure to stay tuned for more coverage!
