About the Event

The IMI Members & Guests Conference will be held on Wednesday 10th April at the National Conference Centre, Coventry Road, Bickenhill, Solihull, West Midlands, B92 0EJ.

The National Conference Centre is the event venue for the National Motorcycle Museum.

The conference is a free of charge day long event where all IMI members and non IMI members are welcome to attend. This year we have an impressive line-up of renowned industry experts delivering presentations on the latest technical developments and business trends, where they will explore ADAS, emissions, management skills and behaviour.

It is also a fantastic opportunity to meet and network with likeminded people from the industry and gain free CPD credits to log!

The IMI’s membership benefit providers will also be there to tell you about their latest offers and how you can get the best out of your IMI membership.

We will be running exclusive offers on IMI courses and IMI Membership on this day only so don’t miss out!

About the venue

National Motorcycle Museum

The National Motorcycle Museum is recognised as the finest and largest British motorcycle museum in the world and originally opened its doors in October 1984 with a collection of 350 motorcycles on display.

The Museum owes its formation to the drive and ambition of one man, Mr WR (Roy) Richards. Roy passed away in 2008 but his work continues under the guardianship of his widow Christine & sons, Simon and Nick with the museum collection now boasting some 1000 plus machines, fully restored to the manufacturers original specifications.

Since opening, this magnificent centre has become the largest motorcycle museum in the world and attracts around 250,000 visitors a year. One of the biggest attractions for many guests is the comprehensive cross-section of British machines, spanning the “60 Glorious Years” of motorcycle manufacturing in this country. The museum’s aim is to preserve these pieces of history for future generations to come, as a reminder of this great nation's industry, engineering prowess and work ethic.
