Still wondering why they moved this from Orlando where it's typically beautiful weather in December to....Indiana?

Good question. Before it moved back to Indy, another show, IMIS, was getting good turnouts of exhibitors and attendees. IMIS followed the PRI weekend - it was a chore for many exhibitors to do both. SEMA then bought them both and went with the location that was garnering a higher turnout at the time. The weather often stinks, but Indy's a central location, with a larger number within driving distance over Orlando.

It's been in Indy forever because of Indy car shops and NHRA. It only moved to Orlando because they tore down the dome stadium to build Lucas oil stadium.

It was in Columbus for a while in the mid 90's...

I get that. But keep on selling me on how much better Canadiapolis is in December than Orlando wink

I dunno, I've done everything from a light jacket to no coat, to preparing for a polar adventure because of the weather.
