Drag Specialties and Parts Unlimited hosted their most successful NVP and Product Expo in 20 years at the Indianapolis Convention Center earlier this month. Following two days of sales training from top vendors in the industry, the show opened to dealers and reps on Saturday, February 10.
“The entire event was fantastic,” reported Jeff Derge, Vice President of Sales. “There was a tremendous amount of enthusiasm from vendors, reps and dealers from the minute the show opened. The Meet & Greet at Crane Bay showcased a great bike show, along with great food and refreshments. Dealers renewed many old friendships and voted for their favorite bikes in the show. It was a very positive way to kick-start the 2018 season!”
Dealer attendance on both days at the Product Expo was the highest of all past NVP shows, according to show officials. The Dealer seminars offered Saturday and Sunday morning were crowded with dealers interested in new products and in-depth training from new vendors. During the Expo hours, dealers were excited to meet and talk with the knowledgeable staff of the many companies represented. Many famous racers were also in attendance and mixed with the crowd.
Mike Collins, President and CEO, summed up the success of the event: “The quality and number of vendors and dealers was impressive. Our reps were very excited about our new products and programs. It’s the first step to a successful year for us, our dealers and hopefully for the entire industry.”
