An excerpt from the proclamation reads,

“AIMExpo continues to provide the powersports industry with a unique, comprehensive and all-in-one platform on which to conduct business; and whereas AIMExpo gathers hundreds of exhibiting companies and thousands of consumer and trade attendees in Orlando, Florida for the purpose of growing commerce; and whereas AIMExpo includes in its core mission the goal of improving motorcycling, the business of motorcycle and the lifestyle of motorcycling with dedicated safety programs as well as a comprehensive educational curriculum.”

“It is integral to have the support of the local community in order for an event of AIMExpo’s magnitude to be successful. Both Orange County and the OCCC have been important partners of AIMExpo since its inception and the proclamation is further proof that Orlando is an ideal venue to host such a groundbreaking event,” said Larry Little, VP and GM of AIMExpo. “It has been a privilege to call Orange County the proverbial home of AIMExpo the past two years and we know the third year is going to be the best one yet.”

By definition, proclamations are official government announcements reserved for matters of great importance. With its contributions to the improvement of both B2B and B2C business for the powersports marketplace, providing an unparalleled setting and platform to celebrate the industry and a boost to the local economy in Orange County, AIMExpo has successfully transformed the landscape of the powersports industry in just two years and is on a path to achieve even greater success for 2015.
