INTERNATIONAL MEDIA VOTES ARE IN
Best 2018 SEMA Show New Products Debuted for Global Enthusiasts
The SEMA Show is an increasingly international platform for companies to display their latest products and promote their brand awareness to not only the U.S. audience but also to buyers and media from 135 countries. In recognition of that global trend, a select group of 30 leading enthusiast media from 19 countries served as Global Media Awards (GMA) judges.
The GMA are now in their 12th year. Each of the panelists selected 10 products from the 3,000 entries in the New Products Showcase that they believe would resonate best with their readers back home. After the dust settled and the 2018 SEMA Show was in the books, 170 companies returned home with prestigious global awards.
Since its humble beginnings in the 60’s, the SEMA Show has evolved and developed, not only multiplying many times over in size and in the vast range of products and from 100 booths to 2,500 but also (perhaps most striking of all) in how global the Show has become, and exhibitors are increasingly taking advantage of its international reach.
Of the 2019 GMA-winning companies, 23 were first-time exhibitors. Journalists from Brazil and Canada selected three of first-time exhibitor Digipower’s products for the prestigious awards.
“The 2018 SEMA Show was very special for us,” said Marcos Jardim, Digipower Founder & CEO. “We are very excited with this amazing experience. I am so proud to have the hard work of our entire team recognized at the biggest automotive trade show in the world. Our engineers, sales and marketing department as well as the entire company received these awards like an injection of adrenaline. It means a powerful seal of quality, because the product has been selected by experts from around the world. It will certainly open doors for Digipower, since our products have been approved by a team with a worldwide mindset who are highly attuned to consumers.”
