An invitation to all Motorcycle & Powersports Dealers from your
Motorcycle Industry Council Board of Directors

A united industry is an industry that is best positioned to move forward together. Getting together in one place at one time provides the best opportunity to unite.

With these thoughts in mind, the board of directors of the MIC encourages you to make plans now and register to attend the 2019 American International Motorcycle Expo presented by Nationwide this September 26-29 when it returns to Columbus, Ohio.

For 2019, the industry’s show is themed Together We Rise as a direct reference to the collective benefit of working as a united industry and moving forward in unison.

Following a strong industry turnout in Las Vegas in 2018, the MIC is re-imagining the industry’s show experience to draw more attendees – dealer, consumer and industry – to this year’s event.
• A more engaging show floor layout
• More powerful dealer education
• Lifestyle neighborhoods on the floor
• An afternoon industry general session directly followed by a new industry party
• The return of powersports industry week
• Demo rides that will include four-wheel dirt demos in addition to motorcycles
As a board we recognize the value of consistency in the show’s location and have made a commitment to return to Columbus at least through 2020.

But as important as a specific venue is, YOU are the key to the future success of our industry.

We invite you to join us in America’s heartland this September for AIMExpo presented by Nationwide, and be an integral part of moving our industry forward as Together We Rise!

We look forward to seeing you in Columbus and encourage you to register today for the powersports event of the year.
