About the EIPC Summer Conference

The EIPC Summer Conference will be held on 1 st & 2nd June 2017 at the Best Western Plus Manor Hotel, Solihull, UK. The Bonus program will take participants to the National Motorcycle Museum in Meriden, Coventry, West Midlands, England. Such is the popularity of this location that what started as a museum dedicated to the heritage of the British motorcycle industry that it has now morphed into the National Conference Centre, which is on the same site. Within walking distance of Birmingham International Airport, the National Motorcycle Museum was the work of one man, Roy Richards, who started collecting motorcycles back in the 1970's. His favorite saying being: "when God made the mountains he had Nortons in mind". There are many members of EIPC for whom a motorcycle is extremely close to their hearts, and for whom such a place will be like reaching the summit.
