What is the difference between AAPEX and SEMA?

The Automotive Aftermarket Products Expo (AAPEX) and the Specialty Equipment Market Association Show (SEMA) serve separate but highly compatible markets within the auto care industry. The difference between AAPEX and SEMA is that AAPEX focuses on the more traditional vehicle repair and maintenance market and features exhibitors who provide hard parts, supplies and services to professional and retail customers. 

SEMA exhibitors and attendees tend to serve the car enthusiast marketplace, including restorers, hot-rodders and those primarily interested in performance products. 

Together, the two comprise Automotive Aftermarket Industry week (AAIW) and is the second largest tradeshow gathering to the Consumer Electronics Expo (CES) in the U.S.
