Additional seminars have been added to the upcoming V-Twin Expo, traditionally that industry segment’s largest event of the year.
The seventh annual event will be held at Cincinnati’s Duke Energy Convention Center on Feb. 3-5. The showcase will feature more than 500 exhibitors and 1,100 booths.
The more than 500 exhibitors is a slight increase from last year, according to event organizers. Like in previous years, expect to see a full spectrum of custom bike builders, from the larger manufacturers like Big Dog Motorcycles and American IronHorse to smaller builders, and a host of aftermarket companies.
Seminars will take place from 2 p.m. to 5 p.m. Friday, from 10 a.m. to 4:15 p.m. Saturday and from 10 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Sunday. The seminars, which Expo Executive Producer Jim Betlach refer to as “real meat-and-potato seminars,” will include:
The site of the V-Twin Expo, the Duke Energy Convention Center, features refurbished second and third floors. As usual, the second floor will be reserved for seminars and meeting rooms. But this year, about 150 exhibitor booths will be on the third floor. That floor, which includes the newly refurbished ballroom, will have a restaurant and new products and registration areas.
The third floor also will be the site of this year’s awards banquet. psb
