INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. - The largest consumer motorcycle show tour launches its first Indianapolis event during Dealer Expo weekend in February 2013.

The Progressive International Motorcycle Shows will make a weekend stop at the Indiana Convention Center Feb. 15-17, co-locating with the 2013 Dealernews International Powersports Dealer Expo being held that same weekend in a separate area of the facility.

“Our goal in developing one, single powersports weekend was to make sure we listened carefully to our customers, so that we created the right format, in the right city, at the right price and built the combined trade and consumer industry event they wanted,” said Advanstar Executive Vice President Danny Phillips.

Dealers attending the 2013 Dealer Expo will be able to visit the motorcycle show for free on Sunday afternoon. Show management encourages dealers to schedule meetings with their OEMs during this time. Dealers also will have the opportunity to view the 2013 models from a number of vehicle manufacturers.

Consumers will not be granted access to the Dealer Expo, nor any of its features and events, until Sunday afternoon, when the entire facility will be open to all trade and consumer attendees. The Dealer Expo will remain a secured, trade-only event from Friday morning to noon on Sunday, according to show management.
