Attendees

I registered and am approved to receive my badge (or received my badge in the mail). But now I find I am unable to attend the show. Can I receive a refund or credit for next year’s show?

Tagged under:
No. Registration fees are non-refundable. No credits or refunds for registration fees will be provided. No exceptions. Please note: Failure to obtain a visa in advance of the show does not constitute a valid basis for a refund.

What if I lost or forgot to bring my badge to the show? Can I have it reprinted onsite?

Tagged under:

Yes. If you arrive on-site and for any reason do not have your badge, you may have it reprinted onsite one time only for a fee of $100 per badge. The fee for reprinting a non-exhibiting company (NEM) badge is $200 per badge.  You may not have anyone else’s badge reprinted onsite but your own. You will need to present an official, government-issued photo ID (like a passport or driver’s license) that must match the name in your registration record. Go to the registration desks at the Westgate Hotel to pay the fee and have your badge reprinted.

If I have a badge for the SEMA Show, do I need to register for the AAPEX Show, also?

Tagged under:

No. One badge allows you entrance to both the SEMA and AAPEX Shows. Please note the AAPEX Show is located at the Sands Expo Center and is not open on Friday, November 2. The AAPEX Show is only open Tuesday – Thursday, Oct. 30 - Nov. 1. Please see their website: www.AAPEXShow.com for more information on their event.

I am unemployed or retired from the automobile aftermarket industry. Or, I am a car club member/ car enthusiast. How do I register to attend the Show?

Tagged under:
The SEMA Show is a trade-only industry event. It is not open to consumers or the general public. If you are unemployed, retired, a car club member or car enthusiast, you do not qualify to receive a badge.

I don’t have access to the Internet or I do not want to register on-line. How can I register?

Tagged under:

You may register on-site using a paper registration form, but depending upon the day and time you arrive, the lines for new, on-site registration may be lengthy. You will also need to bring with you to the Show your qualification documentation and a government-issued photo ID (such as a passport or driver’s license). If you do not have this paperwork with you, you will not be able to complete registration.

Pre-show EXHIBITORS may only register on-line via their designated key contact. Pre-show, ATTENDEES may contact Customer Service to be faxed or mailed a paper registration form. Faxed or mailed-in paper forms received prior to Friday, October 12, 2018 will be processed at $65 each. After that date, paper faxed or mailed-in forms will be processed at $115 each. On-site registration is $90. On-site Registration is located in the Westgate Hotel (formerly the Las Vegas Hotel) adjacent to the Las Vegas Convention Center.

When do I have to wear my badge?

Tagged under:
Badges must be worn at all times in the AAPEX and the SEMA Show areas.

Can I just call SEMA and register over the phone?

Tagged under:
No. Neither Show Management nor Customer Service can take your information over the phone. No exceptions. You must register on-line or in person onsite, complete the registration form, and provide payment as well as any documents required to prove you are qualified to receive a badge for our show.

Can I give my badge to a friend?

Tagged under:
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.

I do not live in the U.S. When will my badge be mailed to me?

If you register after September 15, you must pick up your badge at the on-site Will Call desk.
