Latest Can-Am, Sea-Doo and Ski-Doo Products by BRP

Will Be Highlighted in Columbus


IRVINE, Calif. (May 17, 2017) – The American International Motorcycle Expo presented by Nationwide (AIMExpo) announced today the return of BRP, a global manufacturer of powersports vehicles and propulsion systems, to the AIMExpo show floor for the third consecutive year. Iconic brands Can-Am, Sea-Doo and Ski-Doo will be showcased when the 2017 event takes place on September 21-24 at the Greater Columbus Convention Center in Columbus, Ohio.


Boasting one of the most innovative and diverse ranges of products extending across three unique brands, dealers and enthusiasts will have the opportunity to get an up-close view of the newest 2018 models, products and accessories for a variety of segments – on or off-road, on the water, or in the snow. BRP will also unveil products that will make their public debut in Columbus.


“AIMExpo’s move to Columbus for 2017 was one of the deciding factors for us returning for a third year,” said Delton Bohlman, Director, Global Business and Dealer Development, BRP. “Columbus’ proximity to a high concentration of U.S. dealerships and a significant amount of the American population is important as we work to connect the BRP family of brands with powersports enthusiasts.”


Headlining BRP’s presence in Columbus will be flagship models like the Can-Am Maverick X3 and the successful, three-wheeled Can-Am Spyder. These 2018 models, as well as personal watercraft from Sea-Doo and snowmobiles from Ski-Doo, will be on full display on the show floor.


“The return of BRP and its array of innovative brands and products contributes significantly to the vibrancy of the show, and is reflective of our retailer attendee’s broad scope of showroom offerings and the diverse interests of powersports consumers,” said Cinnamon Kernes, Show Director, AIMExpo presented by Nationwide. “The event platform is designed to create energy and enthusiasm around new products, and we welcome the opportunity to showcase a number of new BRP models to the public as AIMExpo presented by Nationwide shines a spotlight on the powersports industry this September in Columbus.“


Stop by the BRP booth (#2229) on the AIMExpo show floor to see the innovation and performance first-hand this September 21-24.
