Rallies of the World, a showcase for motorcycle rallies and related businesses founded by Carrie Repp of R&R Promotions and Ken Conte of Rise Above Consulting, will hold its first event on March 7 and 8 during Daytona Bike Week’s 75th Anniversary rally. The expo will set up in the middle of the action at Jesters Live (formerly known as The Pavilion), Daytona Bike Week’s premier, 35,000-foot entertainment complex located at Bruce Rossmeyer’s Destination Daytona.

“We’ve got a great line-up already, and we’re still accepting applicants,” says Carrie Repp founder of Rallies of the World “I have been working on this concept and brand for several years and am glad to see it come to fruition. This is a great opportunity for people in the motorcycle rally business to meet one another, network and promote their events and products to consumers and sponsors alike.”

Rallies of the World has captured the attention of some of the biggest names in the motorcycle rally world: Sturgis Motorcycle Rally(TM), Gettysburg Bike Week, Laconia Roadhouse, Bikes Blues and BBQ, and Big Mountain Run are just a few of the participants in the showcase. Rallies of the World has media support from ThunderPress and numerous other industry notables. Attendees will have the opportunity to meet top industry representatives and their teams, potential sponsors, vendors, builders, media, rally goers and other event promoters.

The showcase will open to the public on Monday, March 7, at 11 a.m., and run through Tuesday, March 8. Participants receive tickets to the invitation-only Daytona Harley-Davidson Daytona Bike Week 75th Anniversary industry party on Monday night and a catered invitation only breakfast on Tuesday.

Although Repp and Conte have partnered on several other successful events like The Seminole Hard Rock Roadhouse and BikerFusion, this is the first event of its kind, which is an exploration of the motorcycle rally business from top to bottom headed by a team that has decades of experience promoting and branding events across the nation. Taking place in the heart of one of the world’s most famous motorcycle rallies, amidst thousands of consumers, it offers a unique opportunity for rally organizers, promoters, vendors, sponsors and others to garner experience and exposure.
