Another Spectacular Year of SEMA in 2015 - What a Great Start!!  Here Are Our Day 1 Gigantic Highlights of SEMA Show (Model Edition)

Las Vegas, NV / Py Pai

A Mega Success! 

SEMA 2015 has proven again that they are the king of car shows.  The gigantic amount of companies brought their latest and greatest products to the show, many debuts of new and improved innovations on display, as well as the sheer enormous volume of the attendees, all have made this year's show a mega success!

The venue space has expanded to the outside, beyond just the simple extension. There are many big car companies that came out of the convention center halls, and embraced the first impression advantage being at the must-pass spots along the outside path.  Inside the convention center, three halls as the mainstays and again, South Hall brought the most glamorous show with the promotional talents by the shiny wheels and big tires.  The Central Hall exhibited many of the key vendors of various car accessories and modifications.  Then at the North Hall, hardware and tools and car manufacturers were present.  The pure size of these halls would make the 4-days show a short trip and everybody would wish there will be more time to explore.

Overall, this is a highly successful show that brought the industry together and establishes  the ultimate car nation that we are.  We have the highest respect to the SEMA team that made this happen and it is so well organized.  Our hats off to you all!  Great job!

Busy Floor Activities

Here is the 411 of the many floor activities that we have brought you on just the Day 1 of the SEMA show.  There were so many activities or promo-comotions that all vendors try to sway your gaze, change your path, or uncontrollably just want to go to the booth.  Besides the free giveaways, or product demos, or showing a really cool cars right at the display spot, one of the most instantaneous draw of the traffic is to have a high professional promotional personality.

These high performance professional models have been often mislabeled just for their looks or appearances.  However, the effects of their presences can reach out beyond a simple lead generation mechanism; they can create animated visuals that gather people's attentions, and are an extended marketing exposure to create much more lasting impact to targeted audience and even unreachable audience.

Wheels and Heels Magazine / W&HM Cover and Feature Models in Action!

Here at the SEMA show, we are extremely happy to see many of our over and feature models are here at the show representing many companies to heighten the companies promotion and create a wonderful brand association.

South Hall is always the center of the attention as far as the promotional modeling's perspective.  The South Hall hosts many of the wheels and tire companies, as well as lifestyle.  It's the bridge to the emotional side that requires a complete presentation that involves strong visual elements as well as emotional driven personal connections.  The promotional models are an integral part of the story telling, and many companies are full aware of this and definitely crafted them very well!

We are so proud of them bringing their super talents to help promoting their companies' messages, lead-gen, brand ambassadorship, as well as creating photogenic imagery for people to bring home, plus totally make the whole show softer, much more needed fun, as well as a brain break once in a while for everyone.

Model Coverage

There are so many models to cover at the SEMA show; however, we think we only have about 60-70% covered during the day 1 adventure.  There were models' hours mismatch with our schedule, or models at lunch, or simply our shoes just did not reach far enough on the first day.  Nonetheless, we will continue to bring you more updates and definitely look out for our Instagram as well as Snapchat (coming soon) for more updates or simply gorgeous photos of these amazing talents!!

Thanks to Companies Who Hired All The Promotional Talents

And most of all, we want to thank all the companies that hired any promotional personalities, being they are models, or celebrities, or special talents.  You have the vision, the pulse of this major show, and you have budgeted for these awesome professionals.  Without you, this show may be just hard and dry training opportunities, or support shortcuts, all technical and no fun.  

Day 1 is Done, And Day 2 is Coming!

At the end of the first day, we were totally exhausted, missed our lunch (because we ran around for coverage and kind of forgotten about it...) and could only drag our shaky legs back to the hotel, and had an awful dinner.  But all these are totally worth it!!  And we would not trade anything else for these four days of pure excitements of both sides of the brain, the artistic side and the technical side.

We will also publish the show car coverage, as well as the new and cool products that we've seen in the SEMA show separately in our Wheels section.  People may go just for some basic purposes to better their skills or their knowledge.  We are here for everything!!!  So definitely buckle up for the next several weeks to read about our coverage of the gigantic SEMA show!


A foot note, this year, contrary to our prediction, there seems to be more promotional models than before.  We are super ecstatic about it, not just because we can bring back more awesome photos of them to you, but also it indicates a great growth in the upcoming economy direction!  Who can hire models when there is no budget, right?  This is totally a great indicator that people want to invest, get the commerce flowing and move some goods!  We are very much looking forward to a bright and happy 2016 to come!
