Transportation hubs added for SEMA Show

Aug. 6, 2014

The 2014 Specialty Equipment Market Association (SEMA) Show will feature two new transportation hubs that will help show goers easily and efficiently navigate the annual trade show taking place Tuesday-Friday, Nov. 4-7, at the Las Vegas Convention Center (LVCC) in Las Vegas.

All shuttle and taxi cab pick-ups/drop-offs for the LVCC will be at one of the new transportation hubs, which will be specifically designed to make it fast, easy and safe for SEMA show goers to get in and out of the event. The locations of the transportation hubs will be:

- Gold Pavilion: Located near the LVCC North Hall, just across Paradise Road.
- Silver 4: Located near South Hall, in the parking lot to the east of the Renaissance Hotel parking structure.

"As the landscape of the SEMA Show changes, modifications are made to better accommodate the industry’s needs and to improve the overall show experience," says Peter MacGillivray, SEMA vice president of events and communications. "These transportation hubs make it easier for attendees to get in and out of the SEMA Show, so that they can spend more time connecting with partners and focusing on doing business."

Veteran SEMA Show goers will recall that Silver Road – the street off of Paradise Road that runs from one end of the LVCC to the other – is the street where the shuttle buses and taxi cabs would pick up and drop off passengers. For 2014, Silver Road will be closed to vehicular traffic on both ends, allowing space for additional displays and highlights.

"The 2014 SEMA Show is shaping up to include lots of new and exciting features," says MacGillivray. "We’ll be announcing specifics in the near future, but we’re excited about what this year’s SEMA Show has is store."

The transportation hubs will be surrounded by additional displays and features. SEMA Show organizers also are working with transportation officials to set up the area so that shuttle buses and taxi cabs flow in and out of the area quickly and easily.

Free shuttle bus service is provided on Show days, between the LVCC and most hotels offered through the official SEMA Show housing provider. For details about the transportation or hotel options, or general information about the 2014 SEMA Show, visit
