Las Vegas – SEMA 2015 – Automotive Week 2015

The SEMA Show, we were told, is pretty much the biggest automotive specialty products trade event in the world. This year like others, it apparently drew the industry’s brightest minds and hottest products to the Las Vegas Convention Center. As part of the AAIW, the SEMA Show attracts more than 100,000 industry leaders from more than 100 countries, all searching for profit opportunities in the automotive, truck and SUV, powersports, and RV markets. SEMA Show drew big numbers of both domestic and international buyers. The displays were segmented into twelve sections, and a New Products Showcase featured nearly 2,000 newly introduced parts, tools and components. In addition, the SEMA Show provided attendees with educational seminars, product demonstrations and special events.

Representing a $395 billion global motor vehicle aftermarket, more than 130,000 professionals from around the globe participate in the AAPEX Show. A keynote was dedicated to Building the Workforce of Tomorrow: How to Recruit, Retain and Grow Your Young Talent: companies are having trouble recruiting and retaining younger employees, we heard, yet they are set to represent 75 percent of the entire workforce by 2025. Research has shown that that the average Gen-Y worker leaves in just over two years. It’s therefore imperative that companies keep their younger employees engaged and motivated.
