PPG is tipping its hat to color through a display of dazzling paint jobs and world-class custom cars, trucks and motorcycles at this year’s SEMA show set for Nov. 1–4 at the Las Vegas Convention Center. The PPG exhibit, booth 24601, will focus on the unbeatable combination of advanced refinish products, custom builders and boundless imagination.

More than 100,000 domestic and international industry professionals attend the annual SEMA show. The much-anticipated event provides attendees with product demonstrations, networking opportunities, educational seminars and more; PPG is always an enthusiastic exhibitor.

“SEMA is the industry’s big show, and we like being part of it,” said Cristina Fronzaglia-Murray, PPG manager, marketing communications. “This is where everyone gathers to see what’s new, what’s hot, where the industry is going. And every year the painters and builders amaze us with their creative and ingenious use of PPG products. The PPG booth is open to all SEMA visitors. Come see us, meet the industry’s leaders and check out some really wild wheels.”

Mix PPG products with abundantly talented builders and painters, and SEMA visitors have plenty to see in booth 24601.
