SEMA 2011
I had the privilege of traveling to Las Vegas last week to attend the 2011 SEMA show. No words can describe the size and scope of this show - Greg and I walked for a solid 7 hours per day for two days and still didn't get to see the whole show. The 3rd day saw us walk another 7+ hours through the AAPEX show, which was fairly impressive in its own right.

From a Meguiars perspective, there was the main booth in the central hall, two big rigs parked outside and the Car Crazy Central studio where Barry Meguiar spent time interviewing a variety of guests from the motoring world.

SEMA is also the traditional venue for the announcement of new Meguiars products, which were displayed throughout the Meguiars main booth.

The show itself is a sensory overload of cars, bikes, accessories and a few other attractions. I don't want to kill the site by posting all of my photos, so here is a random sample:

I also got meet up with a couple of legends in the detailing world

And not quite a detailer, but well known to fans of American Chopper

The worst part of the day was right at the end - waiting in line for the monorail back to the hotel
