AIMExpo Earns AMA Endorsement, Surpasses 300th Exhibitor
The American International Motorcycle Expo (AIMExpo) has been officially endorsed by the American Motorcyclist Association (AMA) following an announcement by AMA President and CEO Rob Dingman in the latest issue of American Motorcyclist.
In his American Motorcyclist column, Dingman acknowledges the incredible effort by AIMExpo to create an infrastructure that has the ability to accommodate the various interests of a very diverse group of motorcycle enthusiasts. He pointed out the impressive amount of legwork AIMExpo put in to making a true all-encompassing platform that welcomes motorcyclists from every corner of the sport, it became an obvious choice that AIMExpo also serve as the ideal venue for the AMA to pursue a longstanding goal of bringing its members together.
As a result, the first ever AMA National Convention will take place at AIMExpo, creating an opportunity for its 216,000 members to gather in one place, at one time and an ideal way to celebrate the AMA’s 90th anniversary.
In addition to the convention, the annual AMA Motorcycle Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony will take center stage at AIMExpo. This highly regarded event is a celebration of the rich heritage of motorcycling and the industry’s most influential figures from both on and off the track.
The news just keeps getting better for the American International Motorcycle Expo, as it has signed its 300th exhibitor for its 2014 event with Gibbs Sports Amphibians. As a result, AIMExpo is setting a fast pace to exceed the mark of nearly 400 exhibitors from the event’s launch last October. The second year event will be held October 16-19 at Orlando’s Orange County Convention Center (OCCC).
Gibbs was a marquee exhibitor at AIMExpo last year, showcasing its one-of-a-kind Quadski – the first commercially available amphibian vehicle that reaches 45 mph on both land and water, transitioning between both surfaces in a matter of seconds at the push of a button. With its unique product, the AIMExpo platform aligned with Gibbs’ vision and led to significant media exposure as well as positive responses from both trade and consumers. Returning to AIMExpo in 2014 allows Gibbs to continue its focus on growing their network of quality dealers and positioning the Quadski as an innovative, high-end product for the powersports marketplace.
