AIMExpo dealer registration now open
Dealer registration for AIMExpo 2016 is now open for the fourth annual event on October 13-16 at the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando, Florida.
Registration is free for dealers and “offers access to many valuable experiences including global and North American new product debuts from participating OEMs and aftermarket companies, on-and off-road demo rides, and no-cost participation in the highly valued Powersports DEALER Seminars presented by Powersports Business in conjunction with the Motorcycle Industry Council.”
Qualified powersports dealers will find registration simplified for 2016. Dealers who have previously registered for the first three years of AIMExpo will be recognized by the new registration system and will be able to bypass the trade qualification steps, completing the process in only a few clicks.
The event will again play host to the 2nd annual Championship of the Americas (COTA) custom bike show, and affiliation with the AMD World Championship of Custom Bike Building means the winner will receive expenses to go forward and compete at the 2018 World Championship at INTERMOT, Cologne, Germany.
During the exclusive trade days on October 13 and 14 dealers join international media attendees as being among the first to witness many of the new OEM model and aftermarket product launches happening during both trade days. “With nearly 600 exhibitors expected, there will also be plenty of products to check out from companies exhibiting for the first time, with an increasing number of exhibitors offering show-only specials as a benefit for dealers.
“Additionally, the increasingly popular education program offers five tracks of seminars designed to equip dealers with cutting-edge information they can use to improve the business of their dealership. From social media and marketing, to advanced dealership inventory procedures and more, there is a session for every type of dealer.
“Dealers have told us that getting a look at new product and acquiring knowledge are the most important reasons they attend AIMExpo. Networking with their peers and industry representatives are high on the list too,” said Mike Webster, SVP of MIC Events, producer of the event. “AIMExpo offers all of that and more, and any dealer looking to grow their business has the chance to do so with a minimal financial investment and a great potential return. We’re positive their visit to Orlando in October will prove a worthwhile experience that is sure to reap benefits throughout the next year and beyond.”
