Meeting with two men at 2024 MPMC MTC


Motorsports parts manufacturers can develop strong connections with media who can help promote their brand by signing up now to exhibit at the 2025 SEMA Motorsports Parts Manufacturers Council (MPMC) Media Trade Conference.

Taking place January 21-23, 2025, at the Embassy Suites Orlando International Drive in Orlando, Florida, the event will bring together manufacturers of racing and performance parts together with media for 40-plus private, 30-minute meetings over a span of three days. The program is the most efficient way for motorsports manufacturers to share detailed information about their products, changes in their company or the latest industry trends with media representatives who can promote the news to mass audiences.

Unlike traditional trade shows that focus on meeting with buyers on the show floor, Media Trade Conference meetings are held in private suites, so there are no elaborate booths or setup costs. With media in attendance representing everything from print, online, video/television, radio, podcasts and social-media content creators, the event is the best place for motorsports manufacturers to expand their audience reach and develop new partnerships.

"The face-to-face meetings provide an opportunity like no other in the industry," said Don Meziere of Meziere Enterprises. "Business relationships are built on more solid foundations and a better understanding of attendee's strengths and weaknesses. Professionally I was made more aware of the changes in promotional strategy and the need to evolve and even anticipate future changes."

Relocating from Los Angeles, California, to Orlando, Florida for the first time since the program's inception in 1997, the 2025 conference is anticipated to attract new manufacturer and media participants from the East Coast. Networking breaks and a reception scheduled throughout the week will give participants multiple opportunities to further their connections.  

The MPMC Media Trade Conference is open to MPMC, Truck & Off-Road Alliance (TORA), and Performance Racing Industry (PRI) manufacturing companies whose membership is active at the time of the conference. Manufacturer registration closes September 9, with early-bird pricing closing August 4. Media registration will open in September. Sign up to exhibit here.
