AIMExpo, MPN Partner for Disruptive Thinking Education Series

The Disruptive Thinking education series will run on Tuesday and Wednesday, Feb. 6-7.

AIMExpo and Motorcycle & Powersports News (MPN) have partnered to bring the most engaging, actionable education sessions yet to the Disruptive Thinking stage for the 2024 show, Tuesday through Thursday, Feb. 6-8, at the Las Vegas Convention Center. It will feature three focused tracks: Training and Talent, F&I/PG&A, and Marketing.

As a leading industry publication, MPN has the pulse on powersports trends and developments and understands what dealers need to know today so they can succeed tomorrow.

“We’re thrilled to broaden our relationship with MPN by having them as our strategic partner to help curate AIMExpo’s education series,” said Cinnamon Kernes, vice president of market expansion and events at the Motorcycle Industry Council. “We’ve had a relationship with MPN since the show launched, so it’s fitting that we team up on AIMExpo’s 10th anniversary to put together the most relevant, exciting Disruptive Thinking series, with content and speakers that will help drive the industry forward.”

“The entire Motorcycle & Powersports News team is excited for another AIMExpo, and we are even more thrilled to have expanded our partnership for 2024,” said Greg Jones, content director, Power and Performance Group, MPN. “As such, it is important to us that we help deliver content dealers want and need for the Disruptive Thinking stage. We put the dealer first at MPN, and these educational panels will reflect that in the topics covered and in the companies and people we have on the stage with us. Make sure you’re in attendance and ready to expand on your dealership practices.”

AIMExpo’s Disruptive Thinking education series will run on Tuesday and Wednesday, Feb. 6-7. Among the topics featured are:

  • Symposium-inspired sessions to address issues at the forefront of our industry, including economic changes and forecasts, government relations, new-rider initiatives and more.
  • Classroom-style content with actionable takeaways for dealers and retailers.
  • MIC Breakfast with the Board sponsored by S&P Global. On both Tuesday and Wednesday, the Disruptive Thinking stage will kick off the show with breakfast, and members of the MIC board of directors sharing thoughts and insights on 2023, with an open conversation about the year ahead.
  • Focused, more intimate classroom sessions throughout the day, delivered by industry experts, leaders and influencers in their fields.

“This is powersports’ biggest, most impactful trade show in North America,” Jones continued. “Everyone will be here, and we can’t wait for this annual reunion so we can connect, face-to-face, with all of our powersports colleagues and friends.”

The American International Motorcycle Expo will span more than 225,000 square feet of exhibit space, with more than 15 original equipment manufacturers (OEM), three distributors and hundreds of exhibitors already signed up. Additional features include two e-Bike demo areas, New Product Central, the Dealer Recharge Zone, the MIC Business Center, the AIMExpo Industry Party powered by Tucker and more.
