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

29 03 2017

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 AIMExpoUSA.com/register. 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 AIMExpoUSA.com for more general show information.

Industry Leader Launches ROR Brands

29 03 2017

Former MAG Exec Rod Derifield Back In The Saddle

SANTA ANA, CA – March 29, 2017 – (Motor Sports Newswire) – Powersports industry brand builder and entrepreneur Rod Derifield is back in the saddle… literally. Most recently President of the Motorsport Aftermarket Group (MAG) Off-Road Group, including DragonFire, Malcolm Smith Racing, ProTaper, QuadBoss and Renthal, Derifield is launching ROR Brands. ROR’s initial products will focus on seats and related accessories with imminent plans to expand into other arenas. The first look at the business will be at the Laughlin River Run.

“ROR Brands is founded on strength of passion for the powersports industry and our commitment to elevate the riding experience,” says Derifield. After managing five MAG brands with more than $50 million in sales in the U.S. and the U.K., Derifield has seen the loyalty and passion that riders have, and it is a vision he shares. “We want every rider to enjoy every ride in comfort… for as long as they want.”

Prior to the powersports industry, Derifield pioneered advancements in the life sciences field. “There are many design technologies and materials used in the medical device industry that are a natural fit for a motorcycle, ATV or UTV,” he explains. “After building various brands in the motorcycle industry since 2012, I could clearly visualize the road to synergy of materials, design, and technology from medical device and life science industries with the need to alleviate some of the ‘pain in the butt’ aspects of being in the saddle all day.”

Analysis, planning and strategy clarified some of the industry needs. However, it was the passion, strength, and loyalty of the powersports community and the opportunity to acquire Royal Riding that convinced Rod the time was right to launch ROR Brands. “We are only getting started… the powersports industry will be hearing more from ROR,” concludes Derifield.

Look for the ROR Brands roll out at the Royal Riding display during the Laughlin River Run, April 26-29, 2017. For more information on ROR BRANDS and its products, e-mail rod@rorbrands.com, call (714) 325-5572 or click on https://royalriding.com/pages/ror-brands-inc
