Earlier this year, the Marketplace team, consisting of industry standards Larry Little, Cinnamon Kernes and Mike Webster, began scouring the country for the potential city that will host the debut American International Motorcycle Expo (AIME) slated for Fall 2013.

And after visiting 10 cities, the team has decided on what city will officially launch the AIME.

Larry Little (Vice President & General Manager, Motorcycle Group) says: “It’s been a long process, but we feel that we have found the perfect home for the AIMExpo. This will be a familiar setting for many in the motorcycle industry and part of that factored into our decision. The venue, the city, and the geographic location of the AIMExpo’s new home combined to make it the choice for our new venture.

“The idea of hosting the expo in a ‘destination city’ was always a factor in finding the right fit and we truly believe that’s what we have with our decision. We’re excited to take the continued development of the event into its next phase.”
