Fall 2014 Expo Results

With three of this fall’s events out of the way, and one starting next week, we catch up the events group to find out how shows are performing this year:

Big East Powersports Show & Rocky Mountain Snowmobile Expo

Actual, paid attendance at the Big East Powersports Show was up by more than 20 percent over last year, and last year was up even more than that over the year prior to that.

At Denver, the Rocky Mountain Snowmobile Expo saw attendance increase by 6 percent, and at both shows our vendors reported a dramatic increase in sales of everything from riding gear to performance parts to magazine subscriptions.

Snowmobilers are excited about the coming year, and that showed up at the fall shows.

American International Motorcycle Expo (AIMExpo)

AIMExpo attenandance was 18,145, up from 13,219 in 2013.

Powersports Business Institute @ AIMExpo had 842 attendees in 32 dealer training sessions, or an average of 26 dealers per session. That’s up from an average of 22 dealers in each session last year.

The Motorcycle Group also had over 500 consumers attend 16 seminars on DIY tips for enjoying your motorcycle adventure in the debut of RIDERS GARAGE.
