Host City Of New American International Motorcycle Expo To Be Announced May 11

It's Down to One in the Search for the American International Motorcycle Expo Host City

CAPISTRANO BEACH, Calif. The months of criss-crossing the U.S. and countless hours of searching for the perfect venue and host city for the American International Motorcycle Expo (AIME) have finally paid off as the Marketplace Events team of Larry Little, Cinnamon Kernes, and Mike Webster have narrowed down the candidates to one.

On Friday, May 11, the formal announcement of the date and location of AIME, set to take place in the Fall of 2013, will be revealed to the world. Starting with an original list of more than 10 cities, one well-known destination has surpassed the rest as the ideal site to host an event of this magnitude.

"We've gone from a 'Tale of Two Cities' to the one perfect venue for this showcase," said Little, Vice President & General Manager, Motorcycle Group. "We truly want this event to be something the North American Marketplace has never seen before, so this process has taken some time for good reason because there are so many factors to consider."

AIME's social media efforts will serve as the vehicle for the big announcement, with an exclusive video profile set to be unveiled on Friday, May 11. The video announcement will spotlight the new home of the American International Motorcycle Expo in the Fall of 2013.

"I think we've kept the industry waiting long enough," added Little. "We're ready to let everyone know when and where AIME is headed so the marketplace can adequately plan for 2013. We just need to put the finishing touches on a few things before revealing the big news. I'm confident that what we've been developing is going to get industry, retailers, press and consumers really excited about new possibilities for showcasing motorcycling."
