Show floor re-imagined
AIMExpo has re-imagined the show floor. Neighborhoods have been designed around individual powersports lifestyles.
- “The Camp” features two and four-wheel off-road and adventure enthusiasts.
- “The Alley” is oriented towards Street, Urban and Sport riders.
- “The Shop” covers the V-Twin, Cruiser and Custom riding segments.
These neighborhoods will let visitors quickly find their area of interest(s) and exhibit the vehicles, parts, gear, and accessories that best fit each neighborhood type.
