Oct. 16-19, Orlando, Fla.


The 2014 AMA National Convention was a great success, thanks to you!

We look forward to seeing you next year -- stay connected here!


+ + +

Held in partnership with the American International Motorcycle Expo at the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando, Fla., the AMA National Convention and American Honda AMA Motorcycle Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony, presented by Harley-Davidson Motor Company, Oct. 16-19, provide something for every AMA member (non-AMA members are also welcome) -- a front-row seat to informative seminars by noted speakers, fun rides plus all the cool motorcycling news and info available at the AIMExpo.

Although the AMA National Convention and American Honda AMA Motorcycle Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony take place in conjunction with AIMExpo, the AIMExpo is open to trade and media only, Thursday and Friday, Oct. 16-17. Members of the general public, including attendees of the AMA National Convention who aren't members of motorcycle industry trade or media, are welcome to attend AIMExpo Saturday and Sunday, Oct. 18-19.

At the AMA National Convention, you choose! 
Whether you want to come for one or two events, or you want in on all the action, the AMA National Convention offers you the perfect ticket packages. Join us in Orlando as we learn, ride and celebrate motorcycling together!

  • Please note that online registration is provided for individual registrations. For group pricing or information on AMA Life Member discounts, call (800) 262-5646. For information on sponsorship opportunities, call Director of Marketing Mark Christian at (614) 856-1900.
  • If you are not an AMA member, become one before you register and save big!
  • For lodging, please see AIMExpo Housing for information. Please note, when booking rooms you may see that your reservation is "wait-listed" for one or more of your requested nights. Don't panic, the team at Experient is constantly monitoring inventory, and it is extremely likely that your request will be accommodated.
  • This year's induction ceremony will take place in a state-of-the-art theater, with theater-style seating. This allows a much larger audience to enjoy the event, and at a much lower cost for general seating tickets. Because this format does not allow for dinner to be served as part of the program, a VIP Reception, including the Class of 2014 and other Hall of Famers, is available for those interested in refreshments and ample hors d'oeuvres prior to the show.
