IRVINE, CA – April 25, 2019 – (Motor Sports Newswire) – AIMExpo presented by Nationwide, the premiere showcase for the powersports industry in North America, has re-imagined the show for 2019.

Also new, Dealernews will produce the official show directory and show dailies for the 2019 AIMExpo in Columbus, Ohio, September 26-29, 2019.

Dealernews is proud to announce its partnership with AIMExpo to produce and publish the 2019 Show Directory and Show Dailies,” said Dealernews Publisher John Murphy. “For more than 50 years, we have been the leading trade media outlet for the powersports industry, so it is a natural fit to partner with the premiere trade show in North America.”

In addition to its digitally delivered package, the August 2019 issue will serve as the official show directory and will be printed and distributed to all AIMExpo attendees. “The AIMExpo in Columbus is the powersports industry’s Show, and it is a vitally important component of our $24+Billion industry.”

“We’re returning to Columbus with a host of changes from last year’s successful show,” added Andre Albert, AIMExpo director of sales & marketing. “We’re excited to spotlight and energize the powersports industry and showcase the best it has to offer. The new lifestyle segments in the show bring the passion, excitement and freedom from our sport to the exhibition floor. Outside, we’re excited to add off-road demo rides to AIMExpo Outdoors. These additions combined with subtle but significant changes to the basic architecture of the show will give dealers, exhibitors and consumers the best show experience possible.

This “face-to-face” time is an opportunity to put a face to a name and to shake a hand to solidify existing relationships… and the chance to make new ones,” said Murphy. “That’s really what makes the AIMExpo so important.”
