PICKERINGTON, Ohio -- Women riders. They are, by some accounts, the fastest-growing segment of motorcyclists. And they make or influence purchasing decisions on a high percentage of new motorcycles and related products.

Now vendors can target hundreds of the most influential women riders easily and cost-efficiently at the AMA Women & Motorcycling National Conference, July 13-16, in Athens, Ohio. This year's conference features a Merchandise Midway where vendors can display their products in a high-visibility, high-traffic area. Located in the center of the demo ride area, which includes displays from several major manufacturers, the Merchandise Midway is sure to be one of the focal points of the event.

"The AMA is excited about bringing vendors to this year's Women & Motorcycling National Conference," says Will Stoner, AMA director of special events. "The addition of a Merchandise Midway, combined with the conference's demo rides and numerous motorcycle-related seminars, will provide participants with everything they need for motorcycling -- all in one place."

Vendors will be able to display their products all day July 13 and 14, and the morning of July 15. Packages are available with or without conference registrations. Tent rentals and electrical hook-ups are available at an additional charge. Space is limited, and pre-registration is required. To register, or for more information, contact Stoner at (614) 856-1900, ext. 1227.

The Women & Motorcycling National Conference is a four-day meeting of motorcycling enthusiasts, industry leaders, and presenters with various expertise relating to women and motorcycling. Held at Ohio University in Athens, Ohio, the conference will see presentations on topics ranging from motorcycle mechanics, travel tips and women's gear, to insight from women racers, touring and sport riders, women working in the motorcycling industry and manufacturers.
