Dealer Expo Date Change
The October 2013 Dealer Expo, announced in September, will not be held, an Advanstar official confirmed.

So the industry’s major trade show lineup as it stands today is:

  • 2013 V-Twin Expo, Feb. 2-3, Cincinnati
  • 2013 Dealer Expo, Feb. 15-17, Indianapolis
  •  2013 American International Motorcycle Expo, Oct. 16-20, Orlando
  • 2014 Dealer Expo, Sept. 26-28, Indianapolis
  • 2014 American International Motorcycle Expo, October, Orlando

Advanstar’s announcement of the new fall date for Dealer Expo included the following factors in the decision to move to October:

  • OEM and distributor meeting timing has shifted the buying cycle to the fall
  • Dealers place the bulk of their orders in Q4
  • New products, both OEM and aftermarket, are launched closer to the end of the year
  • Indianapolis in October is beautiful, making the show a true “Ride In” destination

Select manufacturers will host their dealer meetings in Indy.
