Americade to Centralize Operations for Next Year

After 28 years of basing at Roaring Brook Ranch on the outskirts of the town of Lake George, Americade rally organizers have decided to centralize and move its social headquarters closer to the two TourExpo tradeshow locations at the Beach and The Forum in Lake George.

Starting in June 2011, the convention's HQ will be the Fort William Henry Resort, overlooking Lake George, on the hill above the Beach Road Parking Lot where Americade's daily MiniTours assemble.

"Many of our attendees wanted the convenience of being able to park and walk between our headquarters, the tradeshow, the boat cruises and the village shops" said event founder, Bill Dutcher. "Furthermore, many Americaders will be able to attend evening events at our social headquarters and walk back to their motels, or catch the regularly-scheduled trolleys. We've given the matter plenty of thought over the past 28 years…."

Fort William Henry Resort will host many of the demo rides, some factory displays, judging competitions, seminars, fashion shows, and most of the parties. Americade will utilize the entire property including its conference center and banquet rooms. Event registration and check-in will remain at the Holiday Inn, just up the street from Fort William Henry. Pre-registered Americaders can pick up their packets starting Monday, June 6.

Americade has become the world's largest multi-brand motorcycle convention, drawing tourers from all over the globe to this upstate NY village which serves as the gateway to the Adirondack Mountains. Americade 2011 is scheduled for Monday - Saturday June 6 - 11. The TourExpo tradeshows at the Forum and the Beach open on Tuesday
June 7.
