More than 1000 racing companies will occupy 700,000 square feet of exhibit space when the massive Performance Racing Industry Trade Show—the centerpiece of Race Industry Week 2012—arrives in Orlando, Florida, in late November.
Marking its 25th year of providing business opportunities to racing entrepreneurs, the Performance Racing Industry Trade Show promises to deliver more race-winning parts, more racing professionals, and more solutions in 2012 than can be found anywhere.
Over 1000 exhibiting companies and 38,000 racing industry buyers from across the US and 72 countries will come together November 29-December 1, 2012, in Orlando, Florida, for the world’s largest racing trade show.
On display will be the very latest advances in motorsports technology for all types of auto racing, including stock car, drag, open wheel, formula, dirt late model, prototype, off-road, sports car, karting and more.
The show offers unparalleled access and opportunities for racing businesspeople, including retailers of racing components, race engine builders, motorsport engineers, performance WDs, race car builders, race track owners and operators, and professional race teams.
“A trip to the PRI Trade Show is an investment that pays for itself in the coming year over and over again with improved sales and profits, in addition to the competitive advantages that come with knowing the latest advances in racing technology,” said John Kilroy, producer of the PRI Trade Show. “Now more than ever, it’s important to spend time with your industry to find new solutions to your business and the technical challenges in racing.”
Held in the North/South Building of the Orange County Convention Center, the PRI Trade Show is a trade-only event. It is not open to race fans, as attendees must be part of a racing business or professional race team to gain entry. There is no charge to attend.
In addition to countless racing components and motorsports engineering solutions, the PRI Trade Show’s famed Machinery Row provides race engine builders the absolute best opportunity to comparison shop precision machining equipment. More than 100 manufacturers of race shop machinery will display their latest products and have them wired for live demonstrations on race engine parts.
“With the massive Machinery Row section, and all the race engine parts suppliers that exhibit, the PRI Trade Show is a race engine builder’s dream,” added Kilroy. “There’s nothing like it anywhere in the world.”
New this year is the High-Performance Computing & Testing Technologies Zone, which is already proving to be a welcome new concept with motorsport engineering companies. Ten companies have thus far committed to exhibit in this special space on the PRI Trade Show Floor Plan.
“There is no other place that professional race teams and motorsports engineers will be able to shop so many of these race engineering and testing firms all in one place, all at one time,” said Kilroy. “The High-Performance Computing & Testing Technologies Zone will be one more ‘added attraction’ for this group of specialized buyers to come to Orlando.”
Companies currently on the 2012 PRI Trade Show Floor Plan in the High-Performance Computing & Testing Technologies Zone include 7-Test Engineering, A&D Technologies, Altair, Chassisim, Function Sim, Mechanical Sim, Michelin/Laurens Proving Grounds, Morse Measurement, OptimumG and SoVA Motion.
