PPG has announced that visitors to its booth at the SEMA Show this year will be treated to a unique experience.
At its booth (#24600), PPG has planned to showcase custom lowrider vehicles, distinctive artwork pieces, and advanced automotive refinish products and has arranged for celebrity meet and greet sessions.
An artwork collection featuring the artistry and craftsmanship of more than 30 of the custom car world’s top artists will be in special focus.
“Each year, we like to raise the bar in our challenges to our painters,” says Cristina Fronzaglia-Murray, PPG Director, Marketing Communications, Automotive Refinish. “This year, our goal was to unleash their inner potential by inviting them to show what they always wanted to do with colour and take their creativity to an entirely new level. What they come back with is always amazing and more than what we ask for! We have some of the most talented and creative masterminds using our products, and this year, they do not disappoint!”
Well-known industry celebrities will be present at PPG’s meet-and-greet sessions to meet visitors and sign autographs. Reality TV stars Mark Worman and Will Scott from Graveyard Carz will mingle with fans and sign autographs on Nov. 6, from 11 a.m. to noon. Popular painters Charley Hutton and Bobby Alloway, as well as Tom and Mitch Kelly will also be present at the PPG booth. Father-son duo Tom and Mitch Kelly create one-of-a kind collectible posters for the show every year.
“SEMA is just a great stage to meet with old friends in the industry and make new ones,” says Hutton. “This year, I am super excited to get a chance to talk with the 2019 SEMA Battle of the Builders Young Gun Regional Winners alongside PPG. I love meeting and talking with other painters and craftsmen, especially the next generation of builders. They bring such a different perspective on painting, and I enjoy learning from them and hearing about their great ideas.”
Tasca Racing is also scheduled to appear at the meet-and greet sessions. Additionally, Kenny Youngblood, a popular drag racing graphic artist will present his latest creations at the booth.
PPG states in its release that it has been supporting the SEMA Show for a long time now.
“SEMA is one of the best events to connect with the people who use our products every day,” says Fronzaglia-Murray. “We look forward to ‘talking paint’ with them and learning what we can do to help them achieve outstanding colours and finishes. And this year, we’re inviting all painters – regardless if they attend the show – to join in the fun and excitement of what you can do with PPG paint by sharing their inspiration with us on Instagram and Facebook using the hashtag #ppgunleashed.”
