Indian Motorcycle and Polaris Slingshot will be promoting both events and supporting the riders and conference attendees.
“When Polaris asks for rider input, they do indeed listen. And that’s the reason so many women are turning to the Indian Motorcycle and Slingshot brands of motorcycles,” said Alisa Clickenger, Women’s Motorcycle Tours’ Founder and Event Producer. “Indian Motorcycle and Polaris Slingshot are doing an outstanding job of supporting female riders, the events we create for ourselves, and truly listening to the female riding community when it comes to their product development. It’s really an honor to work with them in support of women motorcycle riders and bring forth these events.”
Indian Motorcycle and Polaris Slingshot will be supporting the Women’s Motorcycle Festival & Conference by hosting a Hospitality Walk, welcoming lady riders as they arrive to the conference, as well as sponsoring the General Session portion of the event. Jessica Kubalek, Senior Platform Manager for Indian Motorcycle, and Collett Mazula, Senior Marketing Manager for Polaris Slingshot, will both be speaking at the conference. Their inspiring presentations will give attendees an opportunity to hear directly from the women leading the vehicle and brand development at Polaris.
Indian Motorcycle and Polaris Slingshot are also the title sponsors of the Outdoor Festival portion of the weekend Saturday and Sunday, which will feature a wide range of activities for Powersports enthusiasts including demo rides on their latest models. The Outdoor Festival is open to the public and riders from all around the country – male and female – are encouraged to participate in the festival atmosphere and take these vehicles for a test ride.
Hospitality Walk – Centennial Riders will arrive in Arlington, Virginia, on August 19, 2021. After the exhilarating cross-country motorcycle ride honoring women and celebrating the 19th Amendment, Women’s Right to Vote, Indian Motorcycle and Polaris Slingshot will welcome the riders with a cold towel, a bottle of water, and a gear check station. A welcome bag filled with beautifully crafted gifts courtesy of Indian Motorcycle and Polaris Slingshot will be given to attendees as they enter for the weekend celebration and kick off the Women’s Motorcycle Festival & Conference.
General Session: Education – The Women’s Motorcycle Festival & Conference General Session of the four-day event is made possible by Indian Motorcycle and Polaris Slingshot. Between sessions the audience will enjoy snacks, movement, and fun activities to keep attendees energized, engaged, and entertained. All presentations will be in front of a live audience as well as streamed online for virtual attendees.
Outdoor Festival – A celebration of this size wouldn’t be complete without a festival featuring what motorcyclists love to enjoy – the great outdoors. Riders, conference guests, VIPs and the public will be able to join in the fun, festival atmosphere. Vendors, food trucks, product demonstrations, entertainment, and more will be included in the outdoor festival portion of the four-day event. Both Indian Motorcycle and Polaris Slingshot will be on site all weekend offering demo rides.
