All professionals of the custom motorcycle industry know that the 2012 Cincinnati V-Twin Expo and the Indianapolis V-Twin Dealer Show are competing to attract exhibitors and dealers. The V-Twin Expo seems to have chosen the strategy of producing testimonials from some of its long time exhibitors, a strategy that the Indianapolis V-Twin Dealer Show can’t adopt because 2012 is its inaugural edition (new formula, after a try a few years back)
Below, reproduced as received, the press release from the Cincinnati V-Twin Expo asserting, via some exhibitors’ testimonials, that it is the best trade show of the industry.
Fred Fox, CEO of Parts Unlimited and Drag Specialties speaks out about the 2012 V-Twin Expo and its relevance along with other industry notables. “The V-Twin Expo is undoubtedly the best show for Drag Specialties because of the high quality, established dealers in attendance. If it didn’t deliver, we wouldn’t attend” stated Fred Fox, CEO of LeMans Corp, parent company of Drag Specialties and Parts Unlimited. Fox and many other high visibility exhibitors believe in the V-Twin Expo because it repeatedly delivers the best-qualified dealers. Drag Specialties rewards these dealers each year at the V-Twin Expo by hosting its annual Super Bowl Party near the Expo site. “We re-invest and reward attending dealers for supporting the V-Twin Expo and Drag Specialties with our party. We believe in the V-Twin Expo and plan to continue to support this show and dealers for many, many years to come” finished Fox.
Avon Tyres and SuperTrapp Industries feel much the same about the show and added, “Avon Tyres chooses to attend the V-Twin Expo in Cincinnati because we get our best exposure to the V-Twin market at this event. We have been involved since its first year in 2000” explained Sukoshi Fahey of Avon Tyres. From SuperTrapp, “The V-Twin Expo is and always will be SuperTrapp’s first choice when choosing to attend a V-Twin trade show” said Jeff Wells, Sales, SuperTrapp Industries. The 12th Annual V-Twin Expo in Cincinnati February 4-6, 2012 is not open to the public and focuses exclusively on the American V-twin motorcycle market. It is the only exclusive V-twin trade show attracting dealers from the US, Canada and world.
