ATV Symposium Added to June's EICMA China


An ATV symposium has been added to the roster of events and activities to be held this year at EICMA China — The Motorcycle Show, in Beijing, June 11-13.

The symposium will be facilitated by the MIC in partnership with the organizers of EICMA and the Chinese Chamber of Commerce for Motorcycle (CCCM).

"We'd like to express our appreciation to Costantino Ruggiero, managing director of EICMA, who paved the way for MIC's participation at this exciting new motorcycle exhibition in China," MIC president Tim Buche said in a press release. "The ATV symposium will provide a tremendous opportunity to exchange information and ideas on ATV issues around the world with government regulators, industry, and other stakeholders."

Topics to be covered at the three-hour ATV symposium include market dynamics, consumer use, safety and training, vehicle standards, technical issues, and regulatory issues such as mandatory standards, youth vehicle requirements, and testing and certification.

The MIC says it has been developing relationships with the co-organizers of EICMA China. Last year, sister association SVIA visited China with CPSC Chairman Inez Tenenbaum and participated in the ATV Industry Outreach session. The industry associations also met with CCCM Secretary General Chen Bingnan at the EICMA Milan Bike Show in Italy.
