SEMA 2014, another year for LED light bars, trucks on 24x14s and seemingly bottomless build budgets. While SEMA is known for the flash, the extreme and often over-the-top vehicle builds, the show is also chalked full of new technology, innovative ideas, and emerging trends in the automotive industry.
For those of you out there that haven’t heard of SEMA, the Specialty Equipment Market Association, is a trade association made up of thousands of automotive product manufacturers, retailers, builders, clubs and more all working towards the common goal of supporting, protecting, and endorsing automotive customization. Each Fall SEMA hosts an event out in Las Vegas, a gathering of companies from around the world to showcase the latest in automotive customization. While the show is closed off to the general public, the world watches on as media outlets, vendors and industry members attend this “industry only” event drawing more than 100,000 each year for the 4-day show at the Las Vegas Convention Center.
BDS Suspension has been attending for 6 years now as has continues to stake our claim in booth #30192, a 80×25′ spot in the off-road section where we show off some of the latest products and invite customers to stop by to hang out and enjoy a beverage of choice with the BDS crew. We teamed up with sister companies Zone Offroad Products, JKS Manufacturing, and 4×4 Posi-Lok, all divisions of Sport Truck USA Inc for what was one of our best years yet at this colossal automotive show. In the booth we had several show trucks to include the BDS’s project 2015 Chevy Colorado, Operation Fearless Bronco, the military themed High Honor 2015 GMC 3500 Dually, and the Trail Seeker JK as well as dozens of BDS equipped vehicles on display around the show. The event was packed this year as retail shops, media personnel, OEMs and other industry professionals came out to the show to see all the new products. The booth was buzzing all week long as the masses came by to check out the rides and hang out in the BDS lounge and chat over an ice cold beer. Check out some of the photos from the show and stay tuned for more to come in the coming months as many will be featured online and in print from various off-road publications.
Thanks again to everyone that stopped by the booth to check out what’s new with BDS and the other Sport Truck USA brands. We’re excited for the future and looking forward another awesome year in 2015!
