SANTA MONICA, Calif. - Dealer Expo is expanding its support for powersports dealers who also sell products for the hunting, utility/landscape and electric vehicle markets, with new exhibits to support manufacturers and distributors from those industry segments.

Dealer Expo announced it is expanding its Off-Road exhibit area in acknowledgment that an increasing number of powersports dealers also sell products for these related markets.

"This all-new Dealer Expo is the premier B2B venue that hunting vehicle, utility vehicle, low-speed vehicle and related golf aftermarket product retailers deserve," said Gary Gustafson of G-Force Consulting. "The Off-Road pavilion is a unique way for these manufacturers to promote the latest products for OEM vehicles -- batteries and related equipment, motors and controllers, seats, tires, cab enclosures, and more -- to a broader dealer and distributor audience."

For retailers, "this is the perfect time to get away from the shop and find out about new hunting vehicles, drivetrain upgrades and related accessories in the coming year," Gustafson said.

Dealer Expo will be held Friday through Sunday, Dec. 5-7, at McCormick Place West in downtown Chicago. It will be preceded on Thursday, Dec. 4, by a one-day DX National Retail Conference hosted and organized by Dealernews. "This is a full retail education program in partnership with professional educators," Gustafson said. "Anyone who attends is going to walk away with information and training that simply isn't easily available anywhere else."

Companies in the utility, hunting, landscape and golf fields interested in receiving information on the 2014 Dealer Expo should visit or contact Gustafson directly at 218.209.1388. Retailers interested in registering for Dealer Expo and the DX National Retail Conference may do so at or by calling 800.556.3369.
