EVENT: Less Than One Month Remains Until 2015 American International Motorcycle Expo

With the countdown clock inside of one month until the kickoff of the Third Annual American International Motorcycle Expo (AIMExpo), the anticipation surrounding the 2015 event continues to build as the days count down. North America’s premier powersports trade show is poised to be larger than ever with an increased number of exhibitors and attendees anticipated at Orlando’s Orange County Convention Center (OCCC), October 15-18. Domestic visitors from all 50 states and Canada, and international visitors from nearly 50 countries will be welcomed to the unparalleled all-in-one platform that brings every facet of the powersports marketplace together in one place at one time, including trade, dealers, media and consumer visitors.
 
With more than 550 manufacturers and aftermarket brands, AIMExpo easily surpassed 2014’s exhibitor mark as increasing numbers of powersports companies have recognized Orlando in October as the place to be for business. Headlining the excitement is a record number of OEM exhibitors bringing their latest 2016 models for attendees to see and experience, both inside the OCCC, and on the demo ride courses at AIMExpo Outdoors!. A total of 17 OEMs will be represented on the exhibitor floor, including first-time participants Arctic Cat, BMW, Can-Am/BRP, Honda, and Yamaha WaterCraft. Importantly, this landmark achievement of OEM participation will also feature global and domestic debuts from several manufacturers.

At the off-road portion of AIMExpo Outdoors!, attendees will be able to put four-wheel vehicles to the test from OEM’s like Arctic Cat, Can-Am/BRP, Honda, KYMCO USA, Massimo Motors, Suzuki and Yamaha. For those more inclined to take to the streets, on-road demos will feature Can-Am/BRP, Honda, Kawasaki, KYMCO USA, Orlando Harley-Davidson, Suzuki, Yamaha and Zero. Ever ridden an electric motorcycle? For the first time at AIMExpo you can experience the quiet thrills of Zero’s electric fleet of vehicles.
 
If your powersports hobbies also take you to the water, AIMExpo offers up a strong marine segment this year with BRP’s Sea-Doo line, Gibbs Sports Amphibians and Yamaha WaterCraft on hand. Gibbs will show off its land and water capable dual-purpose vehicle – the Quadski – on the appropriately named “Quadski Lake” at AIMExpo Outdoors!.
