As you can imagine, selecting a location for Wing Ding is a very complicated process. Our event management team has a very long checklist of physical qualifiers that a city must provide such as:
Space for the trade show, registration, etc.
Sufficient number of hotel rooms for our Members
Sufficient parking lots for the motorcycles
Parking lots for Rider Education courses
Then, there are such items as:
Location of convention center to center of city
Security for Members
Condition of road (construction issues)
Access of major, minor roads to the city
Wagering rules (50/50’s, etc.)
Vendor issues (Can they sell motorcycles, trailers, etc.?)
Is the city/state motorcycle friendly?
Availability for entertainment venues (concerts, opening/closing ceremonies, etc
