Meet for lunch and conversation with top buyers from Down Under. Hear about the opportunities in this country of pickup and SUV customizing fanatics and diehard hot-rod enthusiasts. In particular, the new business for the aftermarket that has developed from the all-new Ford Mustang (in righthand drive) landing on Australia’s shores this past year..  Explore the challenges as well: All vehicles in the country are right-hand drive, and many vehicles popularly customized in Australia are not sold in the United States and a strong dollar making exports to that market more expensive. Meet with SEMA members who exhibited in May 2017 at the second SEMA Australia Business Development program in Melbourne. Find out about future programs.
