“[email protected] is a truly unique opportunity to provide dealers something they’ve never had access to before,” said Amy Collins, PowerSports Business group publisher. “We have been providing educational seminars for many years and they have been a huge success. However, never has such a comprehensive curriculum of seminars been available at a single event. We are looking forward to bringing this program to life.”
The program’s schedule was created to ensure maximum flexibility for attending dealers, giving them the ability to participate in a variety of sessions while also maximizing time on the AIMExpo show floor. Classes will be conducted over three days in four separate rooms enabling participants to manage their time as they see fit.
"Our objective with AIMExpo’s educational program is to provide attendees with a product that delivers the greatest value possible," said Kerry Graeber, marketing director, Marketplace Events Motorcycle Group. "Our research has indicated that dealers need comprehensive education more than ever, so we have placed a great emphasis on building this program. The curriculum has been developed based on dealer input and the speakers are among the leading voices in powersports. We’re absolutely confident that by taking part in the Powersports Business Institute @ AIMExpo, dealers will return to their shops with valuable tools and techniques to improve their business."
