In light of continuing developments related to COVID-19 and based on recommendations from health officials, we have decided to cancel the 2020 SEMA Washington Rally, which was scheduled for May 13.

The decision was a difficult one to make. We appreciate your interest in the event, and your ongoing commitment to supporting the industry’s legislative efforts. We will continue to advocate for the industry in the nation’s capital, and as we move forward, it will be more important than ever to work with legislators to help reduce regulatory burdens on member businesses.

We are confident that the industry will persevere through this challenging time, but given the current climate, we believe the decision is the right one to make. Should you have questions or concerns about the Washington Rally, please contact Christian Robinson at
