August Is A Hot Month
August is a hot month for distributors to put on shows, which gives companies a platform to touch base with sales staffs and local dealers. This is a great time to showcase new and upcoming products, talk about market trends, and educate attendees. Plus, we get to catch up with friends in the industry and scope out the competition!
We have never gone to a show and not learned something. Not only are distributor shows educational for us, but even more so educational for the sales staff and dealers as well. Creating promotional materials, newsletters, and advertisements are all great, but nothing can replace face-to-face communication and the impact that it can have.
Our month gets kicked off in Scottsdale, Arizona for the Motovan/MTA 2019 Arizona Expo at the Phoenician, August 14-15. Dealers are welcome to attend on Wednesday, August 14 from 8am – 6pm while the sales staff training will take place on Thursday, the 15th. Will be a great event and a great opportunity to see what is happening in the power sports industry!
Next, we head off to the great country of Canada to visit with our good friends at Kimpex for their 2019 Summer Show! The show will take place on August, 21st at the Hilton Lac-Leamy in Gatineau, QC.
Lastly, we round out the month with a trip to Madison, WI for the 2019 North American NVP show with Parts Unlimited, Drag Specialties, and Parts Canada. This will take place Saturday, August 24 and Sunday, August 25th at the Monona Terrace Community and Convention Center. Saturday’s expo will be from 8:30am – 5:30pm, followed by a meet and greet bike show! Sunday’s schedule will be from 9:00am – 3:30pm. Come visit us and check in on all things D.I.D!
