Through the SEMA Awards, SEMA exhibitors that make the products and accessories for today's popular models identify the vehicle platforms they believe are best for accessorizing.
The program creates awareness for aftermarket products and is an example of the ongoing collaboration SEMA has with automakers and aftermarket manufacturers to bring quality products to market. SEMA also helps aftermarket manufacturers with product development through the SEMA Garage, measuring sessions and technology transfer.
