The 2020 SEMA show in Las Vegas is finally canceled Caleb Jacobs, The Drive · August 6, 2020 at 7:08 am Despite virtually every major automotive event taking 2020 off or running without fans, the Specialty Equipment Market Association (SEMA) show was holding on to hope. While it’d be nice to have crazy, one-off builds to take our minds off the disaster that is this year, it doesn’t look like that’s in the cards. SEMA officially announced Wednesday that the Las Vegas Convention Center will be empty come time for the show’s originally scheduled November dates. The news comes as no surprise, though SEMA did seem to be the most persistent of them all. Even Roger Penske has already announced that the Indianapolis 500–which attracts more than 300,000 fans annually–would run without a crowd this year, but SEMA is nothing without attendees.
