Parts Unlimited / Drag Specialties 2010 NVP

Motorcycle Vendor Shows

The atmosphere throughout the Monona Terrace Convention Center was one of excitement as the 17th annual Parts Unlimited/Drag Specialties National Vendor Presentation (NVP) and Showcase took place this past week in Madison, Wis.

The industry-leading staff of Parts Unlimited and Drag Specialties representatives met with hundreds of vendors to discuss some exciting new products and programs being unveiled for the coming year.

Numerous vendors commented on just how enthusiastic, engaging and motivated the reps were throughout the six-day event.

The event wrapped up with an exclusive Dealer Showcase that experienced record-breaking attendance from around the country. "The dealers in attendance at this year’s NVP Dealer Showcase really impressed me," commented one vendor. "They asked a lot of really good questions, were excited to hear about the new programs and had an overall positive outlook on the coming year."

The CEO of LeMans Corp., Fred Fox was equally enthusiastic about the event.

Fred Fox says: "NVP this year was a tremendous success. We had dealers, vendors and reps all tell us how pleasantly surprised they were that despite the down economy, everyone in attendance was really focused on making the best of the situation and taking advantage of the excellent programs and increased margins we have developed for the coming year."

Greg Blackwell (VP of Sales) says: "We have received numerous emails from vendors commenting that they felt this was the best NVP ever, it was an exhilarating experience and the dealers were really engaged and took everything much more serious than in years past. We couldn’t be happier with how it all turned out."

The NVP attendees also enjoyed some one-on-one time with some of the world’s fastest racers as Ryan Villopoto, Jake Weimer, Josh Strang, Mike Brown and others took time to chat with everyone during the Meet & Greet at the Janesville Distribution Center.

For those authorized Parts Unlimited/Drag Specialties dealers who did not make it to Madison this year, be sure to contact your local representative about reserving your spot for 2011 as this is an event you cannot afford to miss.
