Aftermarket Car Show Opens at Convention Center

The largest aftermarket car accessory trade show just started at the Las Vegas Convention Center.

Everything from high-tech gadgets to tires is on display at the 35th annual Specialty Equipment Market Association or SEMA show. The show brings in manufacturers from more than 100 countries  

"The show attracts buyers from not only all over the United States but all over the world. The reason they are coming here is because their customers demand accessories that will personalize their vehicles and make their vehicles fit them like a glove," Vice-President of SEMA Peter MacGillivray said.

Vendors have packed the convention center to showcase their wares. One of the hottest items is an iPad adapter that installs into the headrest of a car, providing entertainment for kids in the backseat.

Even with the tough economy, vendors say the turn out is better than expected.

"So far, it has been very good. I'm a bit surprised,” said Allen Arzoumanian, with Accele Electronics Inc.  

More than 100,000 people are expected to visit SEMA before it closes at the end of the week. The trade show is not open to the general public.
