The acquisition unifies the racing industry's two trade shows into one, creating the opportunity for exhibitors and buyers to do business in a single location. Unifying the racing industry's trade shows will result in one powerful industry event that will be more productive and profitable for buyers and exhibitors.
States John Kilroy, VP and General Manager for the Performance Racing Industry Show, "We are excited to bring the PRI Trade Show back to Indianapolis, where exhibitors and buyers experienced six very successful racing industry trade shows, from 1998 to 2004. Chris Paulsen, Jeff Stoops, Tony Stewart and the entire IMIS team did an excellent job in starting up a new racing trade show, and we promise to build on their mission to keep Indianapolis the site of the annual epicenter of new racing technology."
Both the PRI and IMIS trade shows will take place as scheduled for 2012.
