National Powersport Auctions Gears Up For 2014 AIMExpo

National Powersport Auctions (NPA) is actively preparing for the Second Annual American International Motorcycle Expo (AIMExpo), set for October 16-19, 2014 at the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando, Florida.

National Powersport Auctions (NPA) is actively preparing for the Second Annual American International Motorcycle Expo (AIMExpo), set for October 16-19, 2014 at the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando, Florida. AIMExpo represents an all-new way of conducting business in North America and an exciting way for NPA to reach out to the entire powersports community.

“We were part of the inaugural AIMExpo event last year and felt that it was right on target,” says Ryan Keefe, NPA’s Director of Marketing. “The ability to interact with the dealers on the show floor was very timely, and the Powersports Business Institute @AIMExpo educational program provided tremendous value to dealers.” NPA helped line up key elements to [email protected] by bringing in experts representing OEMs, leading financial institutions including GE Capital and Sheffield Financial Services, and powersport dealers to provide a real world “state of the industry” roundtable. In looking forward to this year’s program, Keefe stated, “Wait until dealers see what we have in mind for an encore.”

“NPA brings a lot of energy and engagement to AIMExpo, and we’re more than pleased to welcome them back for 2014,” said Cinnamon Kernes, AIMExpo Show Director. “We’re also pleased that they’re contributing significantly to a key charitable component of the show, with their top auctioneer leading the Pediatric Brain Tumor Foundation’s live auction for the Joseph C. Parkhurst Education Fund that benefits the PBTF’s scholarship fund for pediatric brain tumor survivors.”

“Because our core business is dealer-only auctions, we have world class auctioneers on our team that are masters of their craft. Contributing one of our stars to the charity auction at AIMExpo is a perfect fit,” explains Keefe. “All proceeds go to kids that need all the help we can give, so hang onto your hat and be prepared to open your wallet for this very worthy cause!”  The benefit auction will be conducted following AIMExpo’s Happy! Happy Hour on Thursday, October 16.

In addition to the charity auction and the dealer education component, aftermarket exhibitors and dealer attendees will have access to NPA’s latest tools in buying and selling pre-owned powersports and P&A. NPA has also revamped their Value Guide, which now includes a mileage breakdown. “We believe this is the most comprehensive source for pre-owned powersport values in the world,” claims Keefe. The NPA crew will be headquartered at Booth 455 on the show floor. “We can’t wait to pull the trigger on the 2014 AIMExpo show!” says Keefe.
