New Location – Same Great Show
For the first time in its five year run – AIMExpo moved from Orlando, FL to Columbus, OH. While the move was initially controversial – the show seemed to fit in it’s new environment. Rich with great
restaurants, bars, and nightlife opportunities for after the show – attendees were pleasantly surprised by what Columbus had to offer. The hope was that the AIMExpo would essentially take over the city for the show dates – and did it ever.
Around the Greater Columbus Convention Center, bikes were lined up – parked alongside busy city streets. The surrounding hotels were packed with riders who attended for both work and play. With a huge variety of exhibitors to meet with, products to sample, bikes to test ride, and informative presentations – AIMExpo had a little bit
of everything to engage the most novice of powersports enthusiasts to riders who’ve been at it for years.
From Indian to Yamaha to Suzuki and Harley Davidson – all the big manufacturers pulled out the stops for this show. They were there with their best displays, most bad-ass bikes, and off-road units that could take you to the farthest reaching corners of our country.
Next year, the show’s headed to Vegas – lining up with Las Vegas Bike Week and Monster Energy Cup in October – giving attendees more than enough to keep them busy. It should definitely be a top destination on your 2018 list.
