SEMA Show 2019 Review

Posted On: 12/13/2019

With a 53-year legacy, SEMA has a rich history of growth in the auto industry and has definitely earned its reputation as “The Premier Automotive Specialty Products Trade Event in the World”. This year, SEMA saw over 161,000 attendees, which included over 71,000 buyers looking to be wowed by the latest and greatest in automotive technology products. Over 2,400 exhibiting companies were represented throughout the 2.2 million square-foot exhibit hall and features area, and the Race Ramps team was out in force demonstrating to attendees why our products are worth the attention they receive in terms of quality, capacity and style.

At the Booth

For our slice of SEMA this year, we partnered with Dave Kindig of Kindig-it Design and Motor Trend’s top restoration show Bitchin’ Rides to showcase their gleaming custom red 1966 Nova with our foam ramp products. Displayed on Roll-Ups in the front and modified two-piece 67” XT ramps in the back with an LED mirror to reflect the shining rear underbody, the vehicle easily drew in a crowd!

On Thursday, visitors were also treated to a meet and greet with Kindig and Kevin “KevDogg” Schiele as part of a special Race Ramps booth attraction. Fans were thrilled to be able to snap a pic, get memorabilia autographed and meet the guys.

Black Widow Motorcycle Flatstoppers

Holding down the fort in one high-traffic corner, we premiered our Black Widow Motorcycle Flatstoppers so that passersby could feast their eyes on the sleek lines and clean design of these tire savers before stopping by our booth to say hi and find out more.

In addition to the Race Ramps crew, our parent company MOTIS Brands had some attendees who left the show feeling good about Race Ramps’ place in the auto industry.

“The energy and excitement at the Race Ramps booth was tremendous this year,” said Rich Spratt, MOTIS Brands CEO, “and I was proud and excited by the feedback we heard from existing customers and those new to our products as well.”

SEMA first-timer Eric Grunewald, CMO of MOTIS Brands, was impressed by the professional execution of the show, and felt that is was “a great opportunity for us to personally interact with our customers and receive quality feedback on our products.”

Race Ramps Representin’

Because so many of Race Ramps products can be used for show and display, it’s no surprise that many booths propped up their cars on Show Cribs, Show Rocks, Articulation Ramps as well as the larger Pit Stop. In the North Hall, Restyler Ramps provided the perfect lift height for wrapping demonstrations over the course of the show.

As we leave the 2019 SEMA show behind us and prepare for 2020, we look forward to continuing to have Race Ramps be the first name in professional ramps for the auto industry.

Here’s to wrapping up the year in style and starting to plan for the 2020 SEMA show!
