General Motors, through several of its vehicle brands including
Chevrolet, GMC, Cadillac and Saturn, is a long-time supporter of the
SEMA Show. The automaker has exhibited at the event since 1996, and
also demonstrates a strong commitment to vehicle personalization by
collaborating in numerous SEMA programs that make it easier and more
cost-effective for its members to develop products for their vehicles.
These programs allow SEMA members to obtain vehicles in advance of the
public, access confidential drawings and data on new vehicles, and be
recognized for their creativity and design achievements.


“We could not be more pleased to be working with the General Motors
family at the SEMA Show,” said MacGillivray. “The automaker has a long
and deep history with our industry, and it’s evident through the
vehicles that they manufacture.”

Also at the 2008 SEMA Show will be a dozen of the world’s leading
automakers, where thousands of display vehicles will be outfitted with
custom wheels and tires, mobile electronics, performance products,
accessories and more. Each year, more than 130,000 industry
professionals attend the event, which is open exclusively to automotive
professionals. Additional details about and registration for the 2008
