DIAMOND BAR, Calif. (Sept. 18, 2015) — The Specialty Equipment Market Association (SEMA) has added some features to its 2015 SEMA Show Mobile App to make it easier for showgoers to navigate the four-day event in Las Vegas Nov. 3-6.
The app features custom turn-by-turn navigating directions, SEMA said, along with an up-to-date exhibitor list, and — new this year — the ability to scan products in the show's New Products Showcase to create a customized list buyers and media can use during and after the trade show.
“The mobile app's scanning ability empowers users to build a product list that meets their specific needs,” said Peter MacGillivray, SEMA vice president of events and communications. “Users control what products are included on their list, and they have complete ownership of that list. It's great for identifying what booths to visit, and it helps with post-show follow up.”
According to the Diamond Bar-based association, the app also has the ability to:
- Create a custom list of exhibitors to visit by bookmarking them, allowing users to view the selected companies on a single map and find the best route to visit them. The list can be emailed and include notes for each exhibitor;
- Flag the exhibitors visited through a list that will provide contact information and details for all the exhibitors a showgoer meets with during the SEMA Show. Notes can be included;
- View a comprehensive list of educational seminars, celebrity appearances and networking events by day or by category. Events can be flagged to create a personalized schedule, and seminars attended by a showgoer can be rated quickly and easily with the app;
- Easily access transportation details, including where the transportation hubs are at the SEMA Show and which hotels are included in the free hotel shuttle; and
- Stay up-to-date with the latest news through SEMA's social media feeds, available directly through the app.
