David, Fabio, Jesse and Dario at the TEXA booth at AAPEX 2018
You know you’re going to be in for a lot of walking when you head to a big convention in Las Vegas and SEMA / AAPEX was no different.
The SEMA Show (Specialty Equipment Market Association) at the Las Vegas Convention Center featured more than 2,400 exhibitors across a million square feet of floor space in 16 halls and 4 parking lots.
The AAPEX Show (Automotive Aftermarket Product Expo) was held just across town at the Sands Expo Convention Center at the Venetian Hotel. Two floors containing over 2,200 exhibitors from around the world plus education sessions covering everything vehicle related.
Everyone asks what stood out or caught your eye at the shows, the answer is everything. There are so many new products, celebrity appearances, exotic/modified vehicles and unique displays to pick a favorite.
After spending some time at the TEXA booth and visiting other suppliers we wandered the halls and took in a number of informative education sessions and captured photos of a small sampling of what was on display.
