Peter Diamandis to Speak at SEMA Show’s New Product Awards Breakfast

Dr. Peter H. Diamandis, chairman and CEO of the X Prize Foundation, will be the speaker of the 2009 SEMA Show New Product Awards Breakfast, Tuesday, November 3, 2009, in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Widely recognized as a leader in fostering innovation through competition, the X Prize Foundation began a revolution in private spaceflight with the US$10 million Ansari X Prize. Diamandis heads up the organization and is focused on bringing about radical breakthroughs for the benefit of humanity by encouraging innovators to solve some of the greatest challenges facing the world today. Among the Foundation’s current projects is the Progressive Automotive X Prize, a multimillion prize to create clean, safe and super fuel-efficient vehicles.

Open to all exhibitors, the New Products Showcase is a program that allows exhibitors to increase exposure for their products. In addition to being considered for an award, submissions are displayed in a centralized location so that buyers can view thousands of the newest products without having to walk through 2-million-square feet of exhibits and attractions. Buyers visiting the New Products Showcase are also able to have details and images of selected products emailed directly to them. Additionally, photos and video of all the new products are pushed to media throughout the world.

Tickets to the New Product Awards Breakfast are free, but available on a first-come, first served basis as space is limited. Orders can be placed using the special event ticket order form at

Exhibitors interested in having a product considered for an award and/or entered into the Showcase can use the online form at
