The US Motorcycle Industry Council has cancelled its annual AIMExpo trade show, which was set to run alongside a major Tucker Powersports dealer event in Columbus, Ohio. This edition of AimExpo had already been rescheduled from October 2020 to January 2021.
In a statement, MIC Events general manager Cinnamon Kernes said: “We have made the difficult decision to postpone. And while this wasn’t an easy choice, it’s the right one. With local directives limiting gathering size, travel restrictions, and a myriad of other obstacles created by the pandemic, there are too many unknown factors. We look forward to bringing AIMExpo back in 2022.”
Tucker Powersports chief executive Marc McAllister added: “While we at Tucker were very excited for the opportunity to be a part of the show this year, the health and safety of our dealers and supplier partners has to be our first priority. We want to respect public health restrictions and we don’t want to put anyone at risk. We are now looking forward to reconnecting with the MIC and AIMExpo in 2022.”
