Favorite Shows We Attended In 2017
We were excited to attend many shows in 2017 across the U.S., from air suspension to off-road. Here were some of our favorites:
- Lone Star Throwdown in Texas, where we were impressed with the variety of top-notch bagged rides and over-the-top custom trucks!
- Forbidden Fantasy at the beautiful Avi Resort and Casino in Laughlin, our inaugural year of hosting the show in 2017! To learn more about VIAIR at Forbidden Fantasy, visit our blog post here.
- Off-Road Expo at Pomona Fairplex: from custom jeeps to lifted trucks, this show is perfect for the 4×4 enthusiast! Including autographs from your favorite dirt celebrities or jeep wheeling in the off-road obstacle course. See VIAIR’s experience at the Off-Road Expo here.
- Summit Racing’s Motorama at the Atlanta Motor Speedway. With over 200 vendors packed into the center of the historic Motor Speedway and people from many different market segments ranging from classic car restoration, drag racing, off road, motorcycle, and the overall automotive enthusiast, this show never disappoints!
Celebrating 20 Years at SEMA 2017
VIAIR kicked off our 20-year anniversary at the SEMA Show this past October. One of our favorite moments from the show was revealing builder Jeremy Rice of Tre5Customs’ 1981 GMC Sierra. Partnered with Select Glass, Inc., they created a custom one-of-a-kind full glass bed to display our new exclusive Limited Edition VIAIR compressors. See more about our SEMA experience here.
New Product Launches in 2017
We were excited to announce a number of new product launches this past year! In case you missed it, here are the highlights:
- Earlier in the year, we introduced our new line of DOT-approved Push-to-Connect fittings These quality products are made for a max working pressure of 200 PSI, nickel-plated brass for durability and are corrosion resistant. Get more info on our PTC fittings here.
- Just in time for the off-road season, we launched our Stealth Black Onboard Air Systems featuring our stealth black compressors and black inner braided leader hose. These kits are a great addition for any off-roader. Learn more about our Stealth Black OBA’s here.
