INDIANAPOLIS – Racing industry suppliers are showing strong support for the return of the PRI Trade Show to Indianapolis with more than 1,100 companies planning to exhibit products at the event.

2011 PRI Trade ShowThe 26th Annual Performance Racing Industry (PRI) Trade Show will be held Dec. 12-14 at the Indiana Convention Center in Indianapolis.

The PRI Trade Show is returning to Indianapolis for the first time since 2004, following SEMA’s acquisition of the International Motorsports Industry Show (IMIS), consolidating it with the PRI Trade Show under the PRI brand for 2013 and beyond.

“We are thrilled to be back in Indianapolis,” said PRI Trade Show Producer John Kilroy. “We’ve got an extraordinary array of exhibitors all in one place, all at one time. It’s going to be an incredible showcase of the latest advances in racing technology – a ‘must attend’ event for racing professionals everywhere.”

This year’s PRI Trade Show is expected to play host to exhibits from more than 1,100 racing companies occupying 3,300 booths, and is expected to attract more than 40,000 racing professionals from across

The move to Indy has been popular among exhibitors, event organizers say, where many expect the logistics of traveling and staffing just one show to save thousands of dollars, while also bringing the show to the heart of the powerful Midwest racing market.

“Indy is the natural home for PRI. This is going to save a lot of companies a lot of money,” said Mike Lewis of Don Schumacher Racing.

Accompanying the show will be Race Industry Week activities consisting of more than 35 conferences, seminars and other special events that will provide discussion and share insight on the latest technologies and how to apply them throughout the racing world. Also returning is the popular grand opening breakfast on Thursday morning with Dave Despain hosting a variety of guests, including “The King” Richard Petty.

“We’re honored to have Richard Petty make his first-ever appearance at the PRI Trade Show’s Grand Opening Breakfast,” said Kilroy. “Everybody in the business of auto racing owes a lot to Richard and the Petty family, for all they’ve done to establish NASCAR racing as one of America’s most popular sports.”
