Original press release from Power Sport Services:
Toronto, ON –With the success of The Motorcycle Shows seven city 2013 show series behind us, Power Sport Services (PSS) is now focused on the 2014 show season. Bob Ramsay, President of Power Sport Services (PSS) is pleased to announce that Ontario’s biggest motorcycle manufacturers’ show “The Motorcycle Show – Toronto” is moving both the location and date of its next Toronto show to the Direct Energy Centre throughout the weekend of February 21 to February 23, 2014.
“One of the Toronto Show’s trademarks has been its ability to attract an impressive display of new motorcycles, scooters and ATVs each year at the show, commented Ramsay, who added that PSS believes moving the motorcycle show to the Direct Energy Centre is the appropriate next step in building on the future of the Toronto show.”
The Motorcycle Shows national cross-Canada seven city tour features hundreds of new motorcycles, a wide-range of exciting exhibits and features, all under one roof. PSS is always looking for imaginative ways to provide more value for consumers and exhibitors of the shows and we believe the change in location and date are the perfect combination in our plans to expand and build on existing elements at the Toronto Show.
Partnering with the Direct Energy Center, located in downtown Toronto, at Exhibition Place, will give PSS that flexibility. Direct Energy Center is owned and managed by the City of Toronto and is Canada’s largest exhibition and convention facility with over I million square feet of exhibit space.
Direct Energy Centre is easily accessible to both exhibitors and visitors. It is accessible by local transit streetcars and commuter trains which provide links to the entire Greater Toronto Metropolitan area as well as over 7,000 parking spaces across the Exhibition Place site, including 1, 300 parking spaces in the Direct Energy Centre indoor parking garage.
