Can’t believe that it was 10 years ago that I participated to the 1st edition of the Cincinnati V-Twin Expo. Across my display, were 2 beginners in the motorcycle industry. Bert & Lisa Baker of Baker Drivetrain…I remember like yesterday. Ten years spent in the custom motorcycle industry feels like a full generation of new participants, manufacturers, distributors, vendors and. And I already spent almost 2 generations in the biz! Anyway, 2010 is the 10th edition of the V-Twin Expo, will count about 350 exhibitors, will be exciting like every year and…a lot of fun after show hours.
The words “how are you doing?” are going to resonate with more amplitude than ever and strolling the trade show alleys it will be easy to spot those who have succeeded adjusting, very often by diversifying, to the new rules imposed by our economy. As a matter of facts it will be the main topic of several seminars held on the 2nd floor of the Cincinnati Duke Energy Center. What sells, what doesn’t, the new trends, the new parts, the new bikes, the new faces, the old friends, the beginners, the veterans. The V-Twin Expo is all about this and attracts participants, visitors and medias from all over the world. Of course I will participate and report almost live, except the usual Wi-Fi breakdowns of the best hotel in Cincinnati!. The trade show is not open to the public. Only registered dealers and medias can visit . V-twin Expo.
