No. Badges CANNOT be reproduced, transferred, or resold. All AAPEX and SEMA Show attendees and exhibiting personnel must be prepared to provide a matching government-issued photo ID upon request. Show management reserves the right to refuse admission and revoke your badge at any time. If it is discovered you are allowing someone else to use your badge, that person will be escorted from the Show floor and both of you may not be allowed to attend a future Show.

What access will my media credentials give me to the Show floor?

Tagged under:

Media from companies that are also exhibiting will receive “Exhibiting Media” badge holders and are allowed the same access as exhibitors -- access onto the Show floor two hours before regular show hours.

What if I did not register or get approved in advance to attend as media? Can I still attend the Show?

Tagged under:

Yes. You can register on-site in the Media Center; however, while all qualified media will be approved, questionable applicants risk being denied and may not be approved onsite at the SEMA Show. We recommend you register in advance to expedite the process and ensure that you do qualify. To register on-site, bring qualifying materials to be approved for credentials as well as a photo ID.
