Recap from AIMExpo 2016

Thousands of motorcycle enthusiasts from around the world converged on Orlando, Florida’s Orange County Convention Center last week for AIMExpo 2016, North America’s largest powersports trade show. Nearly 500 exhibitors took advantage of the four-day showcase featuring the latest and greatest products coming to the powersports marketplace, which was highlighted by a large number of both global and North American debuts of new motorcycles, gear, and aftermarket products during two exclusive trade days. The weekend welcomed an endless stream of consumers, who came in droves to see the newest products first hand and also put a wide selection of two, three, and four-wheeled vehicles to the test at AIMExpo Outdoors! The excitement-filled celebration of North America's passion for motorcycling left a lasting impression on all those who attended, establishing high levels of anticipation for AIMExpo 2017, which will make its inaugural visit to Columbus, Ohio, next September 21-24.
