Free Dealer Registration for 2017 American International Motorcycle Expo Presented by Nationwide Now Open

New Columbus Location Puts The Powersports Industry’s Expo Close To Dealers

IRVINE, CA – March 29, 2017 – (Motor Sports Newswire) –  Motorcycle and powersports dealerships can start planning for the 2017 American International Motorcycle Expo (AIMExpo) presented by Nationwide, with the opening of the show’s free dealer registration portal. In a new location and at a new time, the Motorcycle Industry Council produced AIMExpo will fill up the entire exhibition space at the Greater Columbus Convention Center in Columbus, Ohio, from September 21-24. The highly-anticipated move puts the industry’s biggest show within 500 miles of 41% of the nation’s dealers, making the event – where 2018 products will be launched – more accessible to dealership personnel than ever before.

Qualified dealers will discover a streamlined registration process for their free trade-attendee credential that secures access to a variety of valuable tools and experiences at the industry’s only all-inclusive powersports expo. Kicking off AIMExpo’s four-day format are two days dedicated specifically to trade and media. Dealers, industry and media attendees will have the opportunity to personally interact with and view global and North American new product introductions from OEMs and aftermarket companies.

At the Powersports DEALER Seminars presented by PowerSports Business (PSB), retailers will have free access to a wide range of seminars geared toward enhancing their business and helping it reach its ultimate potential. Presenters are among the best and brightest leaders in the industry, as selected by PSB. Dealers will also be able to participate in demo rides on a variety of machines at AIMExpo Outdoors!

“Creating a valuable dealer experience, including educational seminars that help make a dealer’s business more effective and profitable, and a showcase of the industry’s new products that will drive sales in 2018 are vital reasons why a dealer needs to attend,” said Cinnamon Kernes, AIMExpo Show Director. “We recognize the investment a dealer needs to make in time and expense to attend, and we are working hard to provide a substantial ROI for their investment.”

She added, “the new central location makes AIMExpo less than a day’s drive for nearly half of the U.S. dealers and only a short flight for even more. The downtown Columbus location will remind many dealers of industry shows from previous years, except the weather will be warm! As the only convention in town, we’re looking forward to having the powersports industry take over downtown Columbus, bringing to life the tight-knit community that we all know and love.”

Dealer registration is free to all motorcycle and powersports dealers at In addition, dealers will find information about where to stay with special show rates at host hotels.

Dealers with questions about AIMExpo or registering to attend can call toll free at 855-MC-SHOWS (855-627-4697) or visit for more general show information.
