What did they see, you might ask? 3,000 newly introduced parts and tools, 2,400 exhibiting companies, and 1,500 of the coolest cars you’ve ever seen. UpdatePromise, an exhibitor at the event, provides some insight into their experience in this SEMA Show 2017 review.

SEMA was especially exciting for UpdatePromise this time around, mostly due to the release of their enhanced mobile app this year, as well as a new integration partnership with one of the largest credit and debit card processors in the US. You can find UpdatePromise at their next event, the National Automotive Dealers Association Convention, in Las Vegas next year, from March 23rd to 25th.
