We were concerned when registrations didn’t open in September as scheduled, but now comes word that the 2018 V-Twin Expo has been cancelled. Here is the word from event founder Jim Betlach:
“I regretfully inform you that the 2018 V-Twin Expo in Cincinnati is being cancelled, due to factors beyond our control that ultimately impact the overall event quality. As you know, the V-Twin Expo has played an important role in the V-twin industry since 2000.
I’m proud to say the V-Twin Expo delivered a world-class trade show year after year and helped reignite the industry’s only v-twin focused trade show. We apologize for any inconvenience, and hope that you will see our decision positively and support it.
I want to take this time to thank you for your on-going support over the years, and I look forward to seeing you again at the next V-twin industry event.”
The V-Twin Expo brought together business-minded industry professionals at the beginning of each year to network, collaborate and exhibit the latest products for the V-Twin market. The formula was simple: to give the industry what it wanted, at a time it was wanted and in a location the dealers and vendors wanted it. For the American V-Twin market, the V-Twin Expo by Easyriders was what the industry had asked for for nearly two decades at the Duke Energy Convention Center in downtown Cincinnati.
