AIMEXPO ROLLING INTO LAS VEGAS FOR 2022 SHOW

AIMEXPO ROLLING INTO LAS VEGAS FOR 2022 SHOW

The AIMExpo announced their 2022 show location this week. In a press release and YouTube video, the show announced the move from Columbus to Las Vegas.

I originally thought that they would stay in Columbus for several years. If given the chance, I think Columbus could have achieved the same vibe that we had in Indy and before that in Cincinnati for the heyday of the old Dealernews shows.

Below is a press release announcing the location.

IRVINE, Calif., June 15, 2021 – The Motorcycle Industry Council’s American International Motorcycle Expo has selected the world famous Las Vegas Convention Center for AIMExpo 2022, scheduled for January 19-21, 2022. Tucker Powersports will co-locate their annual dealer show at the venue, creating the largest and most important powersports industry event in the country.  

“AIMExpo 2022 will be the first time our industry gathers together in more than two years, and we are working to make this a can’t miss event for everyone in powersports,” said Erik Pritchard, president and CEO of the Motorcycle Industry Council. “In the two years since we last met, our industry managed to thrive under the most challenging of circumstances. We are building a show that will help dealers continue this success, no matter what the future holds.”

New for 2022, AIMExpo will be partnering with Tucker Powersports and other industry leaders to create an educational line-up that offers basic and advanced sessions designed to increase dealership profitability, community visibility, and efficiency. Focusing on the business of your business, AIMExpo Dealer Education will help drive door swings by sharing content that speaks to community engagement, business management, and best practices for retail operations.


“By continuing to partner with Tucker Powersports, the nation’s premier powersports distributor, both AIMExpo and Tucker will be able to deliver exponential value to dealers and enable them to efficiently connect and conduct business,” said Cinnamon Kernes, vice president marketing and events.  

In addition to the combined educational offerings available through AIMExpo and Tucker, nearly 300,000 square feet of adrenaline-filled exhibit space will feature more than 300 of the industry’s top vehicle manufacturers, aftermarket manufacturers, distributors, and service providers showcasing their latest products and services, along with show specials designed to kick-off the powersports industry’s order writing season.  Dealers who are customers of Tucker Powersports will enjoy a separate check-in experience, VIP activities, an exclusive lounge on the show floor and much more.

“With COVID pushing us apart for many months, we’re happy that we can help bring dealers together to learn, to experience great products and to reconnect with friends,” said Tucker Powersports President and CEO Marc McAllister. “The powersports industry is all about people joining together to do what they love, and Tucker has always put a high value on building great relationships with our dealers.”

After more than two years since the last AIMExpo, an industry reunion of this scale wouldn’t be complete without networking events celebrating the people and passion that make this industry great. AIMExpo’s opening day will feature a general session focused on the year ahead, market expansion and how the powersports industry can unite for future growth. Following the general session there will be an epic industry party kicking off the 2022 buying season. Finally, after two solid days of education, exhibits, and networking, the show will close out in true Las Vegas style; Johnny Lewis and flat track racing return to AIMExpo for Fast Friday with celebrity, industry, and e-class racing.
