Women & Motorcycling Conference Scheduled for August

The American Motorcyclist Association's next International Women & Motorcycling Conference (IWMC) is scheduled to take place at the Keystone Resort & Conference Center in Keystone, Colo., Aug. 19-22, 2009.

The 2009 event will be the fifth AMA International Women & Motorcycling Conference. Previous conferences took place in 1997, 2000, 2002 and 2006. The AMA looks to continue to build upon the success of past conferences with the Keystone event, which will be the first Women & Motorcycling Conference held west of the Mississippi River.

The 2006 conference took place at the Classic Center in Athens, Georgia, and hosted more than 1,100 attendees who enjoyed a range of activities including seminars and panel discussions; demo rides from Harley-Davidson, BMW, Buell, Ducati, Honda, Kawasaki, KYMCO, Ridley and Yamaha; a product vendor exposition; industry keynote speakers; motorcycle skills courses and workshops; guided rides; live entertainment; and catered meals.

Keystone, about 90 minutes west of Denver, is close to many world-class motorcycling destinations within Colorado's Rocky Mountain region. The AMA says selection of the Keystone site was the culmination of several months of research by the organization and representatives of prominent women?s motorcycling groups.

IWMC 2009 event pricing, reservation applications and lodging information will be available shortly. For event sponsorship and product vendor opportunities, please call 800/AMA-JOIN, ext 1190.
