The AAPEX Show, a sister event to the SEMA Show, announced today that show goers and exhibitors will be required to show proof of a COVID-19 vaccination or a negative COVID PCR test taken prior to arrival. AAPEX owners are also considering offering onsite COVID testing.
This follows the CES announcement that show goers will be required to be vaccinated to attend the event in January.
Organizers of the SEMA Show, November 2-5, Las Vegas Convention Center, announced they are “taking into account that the COVID-19 landscape is changing week to week. The SEMA Show is working with state and local health authorities to announce more in the coming weeks concerning safety measures that will be required in November. While subject to change, as of July 30, 2021, Nevada is requiring masks for all indoor events in Las Vegas.”
AAPEX said its COVID protection measures will be administered through a third-party verification platform and on-site screening. As with the SEMA show, as of now, masks will be required.
