The Las Vegas Convention Center is being transformed from a hollowed hall to the scene of the greatest automotive trade show in existence. The annual SEMA show will open its doors on Tuesday, November 1 at 9 a.m. and thousands will hit the floor, looking for the latest and greatest.
Before the first visitor can see the wares being offered, over 1,500 displays must be built. Nearly as many cars and trucks must be moved into the building, some under their own power. This year, we got there early, just to see it as the magic comes together. Throughout the day, workers built displays, constructed scaffolds, loaded parts, double-checked materials and embraced for the rush of Tuesday.
Throughout this week, we'll be passing along news and information here and at our facebook site. As soon as we hear about it, we'll be sending it your way.
Here's a sneak peek at what we saw on Monday before noon. There's a lot more where that came from.
