2022 North American NVP Expo Back at Full Speed

Dealer attendance increased by 40%.

After a three-year hiatus, Parts Unlimited, Drag Specialties and Parts Canada were back together for the 2022 North American NVP Expo in Madison, Wisconsin, and it was full speed ahead.

The event, which took place Aug. 18-21 at the Monona Terrace, was a long-awaited reunion of the three companies to introduce the fall buying season. Not only was the expo floor expanded to accommodate over 20 new vendors, but dealer attendance increased by 40%, making it the largest Madison NVP Expo ever.  

Paul Langley, chairman of LeMans Corp., said, “A record number of vendors, dealers and LeMans staff participated in the 2022 Summer NVP, and post-show feedback has been abundant and extremely positive. The planning and teamwork put forth by our dedicated staff along with a three-year hiatus crafted the best NVP I have ever witnessed. Moving forward, we can build on this momentum for 2023 and beyond.”  

Highlights of the weekend included a dealer-packed expo floor both days and 20-plus new vendors in attendance across many markets: from Harley-Davidson to ATV/UTV and many from LeMans’ newest market, e-bike. The Intense TazerMX e-bike booth held a steady stream of visitors, where attending dealers were able to get first-hand experience with the bikes and hop-on for a test ride. The biggest highlight by far was just being back together, face-to-face with industry colleagues and friends.

James Danyluk, president of Parts Canada, stated, “It had been three years since we last got together; after mere minutes with old industry friends, it became very evident the show was going to be a success. The two main ingredients for a successful show are great industry relationships and mutual sales objectives, and the 2022 Madison NVP was a complete success on both.”

Saturday evening’s Meet & Greet once again brought the industry together with a Bike Show, where attendees could vote for their favorite Metric and V-twin creations. People’s Choice award winner for Metric was Fabian Gonzalez of The Toy Shop & Motolounge, while the V-Twin People’s Choice award went to Tyler Griffen of Road Rage BikeWorks. Following the bike show was a celebration of Icon’s 20th anniversary with a stunt show and mini e-bike relay races in downtown Madison.

Mike Collins, president of LeMans Corp., said, “This was the largest family reunion I have ever attended. It was also the best. We’ve set the bar very high with this one. I can’t wait for Louisville!”
