Visitors can look forward to browsing through and learning about the latest products and services via EXHIBITS AND DIPLAYS as well as live presentations and product launches. That’s not all. For the first time in an event of this nature, there will be a LIVE ACTION ARENA where visitors can witness live action riding demonstrations and also engage in test rides with a selected line-up of vehicles.

The conference will be held concurrently on the first two days of MotoXpo KL 2012.

This conference will be a melting point for participating parties to moot development ideas and to share industry insights. Elements of this conference will also be exhibited in the SHOW for the public visitors to share and even contribute in terms of feedback polls and show of support for the many different topics being presented.
