That's why I think show's like these would benefit if just one day was open to the general public. Increased awareness = the increase of potential profit for the vendors and manufacturers of their products. As it is now, it's left to various enthusiasts news outlets on what's worthy about being shown or discussed.
I did just submit a follow-up survey to SEMA officials.
Two Questions on there:
1. Do you feel the need to allow consumers into the show.
2. Do you feel consumers should be allowed to enter the show on Fridays, or possibly open up SEMA on the weekend for consumers?
So there you have it folks...it's been submitted and made the survey....I wouldn't doubt it that they allow people in next year.
In all reality, the outside portion of the show is accessible to ANYONE....so you get to do the DUB experience, West Coast Customs thing, FORD drifting, and all the badass cars parked outside........it's not inside where the products are, but still...cool
