Overland Expo will host a panel of experts as part of SEMA Education at the 2019 SEMA Show, Nov 5-8, 2019 in Las Vegas.  The SEMA Overland Education program was developed as part of SEMA’s new Overland Experience area, Booth #51501 in the Performance Pavilion.  

The SEMA Show is a trade show produced by the Specialty Equipment Market Association (SEMA), a nonprofit trade association. The annual event is the leading venue bringing together manufacturers and buyers within the automotive specialty equipment industry.

SEMA’s new Overland Experience area will bring together vehicles and products that highlight the growing adventure travel lifestyle.  This dedicated section of the 2019 SEMA Show will feature dozens of overland-kitted vehicles displayed alongside exhibitors supporting the growing overlanding market in addition to the educational panels & seminars.

Overland Expo has designed the Overland Education sessions to educate the SEMA Show’s industry attendees about a range of topics including the differences between “off road” and “overland,” why brands should understand and embrace the overland community, and ways to identify overlanding trends, marketing best practices and cross-over markets within the community.
