Promotevents attended this years International Motorcycle Show in Washington, DC at The Walter E. Washington Convention Center, an extraordinary 2.3 million-square-foot conventions and meetings facility, is equipped to handle events of all sizes, from small groups and break-out meetings to events for 500 to 42,000 attendees.

Wether you like motorcycles or not, this is one very fun show, even for just the eye candy of shiny new road machines. Many have thought about cruising the open road, wind blowing in their hair, “Easy Rider” style.

We had an absolute blast and everyone at the show was beyond friendly and as you would expect laid back. You won’t find pushing conference sales people trying to sell you their services at this show. They simply answered any questions wether you’re interested or not and open to strike up conversations.

To give some background about the show, we pulled in a description from the show for additional information about what to expect and the history of the show.

“The Progressive® International Motorcycle Shows® is the world’s largest consumer motorcycle show tour.  With 35 years of experience, the IMS Tour provides attendees with an all-access pass to the world of motorcycling, connecting hundreds of thousands of motorsports enthusiasts with top manufacturers and premier aftermarket brands.

The 36th annual tour will visit seven cities in 2016 and 2017, welcoming experienced, new and non-riders to preview hundreds of new 2, 3 and 4-wheel vehicles before they hit the dealerships.  Attendees will also have the chance to purchase parts, gear and accessories; speak with brand representatives; vote in the J&P Cycles Ultimate Builder Custom Bike Show; see vintage bikes; connect with other enthusiasts; watch a stunt show and experience new attractions – all in one weekend! 

For the 800+ exhibiting brands, IMS delivers motorsports enthusiasts, emerging new riders, and a growing percentage of the highly desirable under 35-year-old audience.  They are affluent and ready to purchase, engaged with the sport and lifestyle, and influenced by the brands they meet.  The top two reasons consumers attend the shows are to see new bikes and to evaluate and purchase aftermarket parts, gear and accessories.

The Progressive® International Motorcycle Shows® is managed by Advanstar Communications, Inc., dba UBM, a member of the Motorcycle Industry Council.”
