Take your vitamins: If you thought Lucas Oil Stadium was big, wait until tomorrow when the remaining 60 percent (yes, 60 percent) of the show opens for business. Dealer Expo 2009 gets into full swing Saturday when the exhibit halls open at the nearby Indiana Convention Center.
If your doggies are tired, fear not; the Dealer Expo Express is there to help you persevere. These shuttle buses will be running constantly between the Convention Center and Lucas Oil Stadium. They're clean (nice), they're heated (yay!), and they'll give your feet a few minutes' rest before you venture forth into new exhibitor worlds.
And you can even do some good while you're in transit by dropping your spare change into collection bins for the Joseph C. Parkhurst Education Fund benefiting the Pediatric Brain Tumor Foundation. (You didn't want all that coinage weighing you down anyway, did you?)
The Indiana Convention Center features the new Business Services pavilion, the popular Italian Pavilion, the Cycle World Joseph C. Parkhurst Education Fund Silent Auction, the Dealernews Top 100 Gallery (featuring the Dealer of the Year and the Merit Award winners), all of the Dealernews Live seminars, and a Business Center hosted by the Motorcycle Industry Council. On the exhibit floors you'll find everyone from the big distributors (Parts Unlimited, Tucker Rocky, Western Power Sports and others) to the major brands (Ogio, Mustang Motorcycle Seats, RK Excel, Tourmaster and many more).
