The Progressive International Motorcycle Show indoor convention center series, as we’ve known it for nearly 40 years, is ending. In 2021 the shows are moving outdoors to larger open-air venues as the culmination of a five-year restructuring effort to take the show to the next level. IMS Outdoors will take more of a “festival” approach that welcomes new riders, the moto-curious, and non-riders.. This will include everything from stunt shows to live entertainment from local artisans, bands and locally crafted food and drinks. Rather than a wild west atmosphere like Sturgis, IMS Outdoors promises to be family-friendly with full COVID-19 protective measures in place. The new larger venues will feature more dirt and street demo rides to test the latest motorcycles, ATVs, scooters, skateboards, SxS, electric mobility products (eBikes, eMotorcycles), and overland RV products for adventurer lifestyles.
