I’ve enjoyed heading out to the V-Twin Expo for the past few years to check out all the new stuff being released and hooking up with some industry people. Looks like this year the “Monday” part of the show is being axed for some longer hours on Saturday and Sunday. From what I’ve heard over the past few years (as I am usually not there on Mondays) this shouldn’t really be a shock to many people….
From a post on the V-Twin Site:
In an effort to meet exhibitor and dealer requests, the V-Twin Expo will extend Saturday and Sunday show hours and eliminate Monday show hours.
The 13th Annual V-Twin Expo is not open to the public and focuses exclusively on the American v-twin motorcycle market. It is the only exclusive v-twin tradeshow featuring world-class exhibitors that design, produce and or manufacture products specific to the v-twin marketplace. The V-Twin Expo held at the Duke Energy Center in downtown Cincinnati consistently attracts thousands of dealers from the US, Canada and around the world. The exhibitors and dealers alike stated the need for more time on the show floor Saturday and Sunday. In 2013, the new show hours will be Saturday, February 2 from 8:00AM – 6:00PM and Sunday, February 3 from 9:00AM – 5:00PM. The V-Twin Expo will no longer be open Monday.
“We’re fortunate our team has open lines of communication with our exhibitors and dealers. The result of their input has been and continues to be significant in maintaining our on-going success in Cincinnati. For 13 years we’ve partnered with our customers to meet their trade show needs while growing the show overall. We’re excited about what’s to come. New show hours is just the beginning. There’s more news to share in the near future” explained Show Producer Jim Betlach.
