SEMA seeks nominations for innovator award

The Specialty Equipment Marketing Association  (SEMA) is seeking nominations to recognize a young individual from the industry who is making breakthroughs in the areas of new products, has new approaches to business or is setting new trends. These nominations will be used to select the first-ever SEMA Gen-3 Innovator Award.

The winning candidate may be launching a new trend, the inventor of an original product or the first to devise and implement stellar ideas that better suit the changing marketplace of the new millennium. Whatever the case, the Gen-3 Innovator will be young — under 40 years of age as of Dec. 31, 2012.

SEMA will honor the SEMA Gen-3 Innovator Award winner at the 2012 SEMA Show Awards Banquet, which takes place on the evening of Thursday, Nov. 1, 2012. Finalists will be invited, along with a guest, to attend and participate in the banquet.

Nomination forms must be received prior to close of business on 5 p.m. PDT on Wednesday, Oct. 10.
