AIMExpo - Columbus, Ohio, September 26-29

This year's AIMExpo is said to have seen a combined total dealer/industry and consumer attendance of 19,358, with 13,983 consumers and 2,314 recorded as dealers/buyers from 992 individual "unique retail locations"; the remainder of the attendance being exhibitor booth staff and "associated industry professionals."

All 50 U.S. states were represented by dealer attendees, with visitors from 55 countries in total. There were 370 exhibiting companies, with 35 total OEMs represented on the show floor; 830 people were recorded as attending the Powersports Dealer Seminars, with representatives of 186 media outlets in attendance.
The organizers have estimated that the show generated 416,000 social media engagements and 4.6 million social media impressions.

The show is slated to return to Columbus in October 2020, maintaining its two-day trade and weekend two-day consumer attendance formula (1st through 4th). Many in the motorcycle industry are hoping that the Expo will 'drop anchor' at Columbus and make the popular Midwestern city its permanent home.
