MPMC members who are selected to exhibit at the 2018 event are encouraged to bring their newest lines and the products they want to highlight in the year to come.
Applications are open for the 2018 Motorsports Parts Manufacturers Council (MPMC) Media Trade Conference, to be held January 24–26, at the Embassy Suites Orange County Airport North in Santa Ana, California. Only 100 exhibitor spots are available, and participants will be chosen using a random-number lottery system. Manufacturers who submitted an application but were not selected for the 2017 event are automatically guaranteed a spot in the 2018 event if they submit a new application by the September 5, 2017, deadline. Exhibitor selection is available only for MPMC-member companies.
MPMC members who are selected to exhibit at the 2018 event are encouraged to bring their newest lines and the products they want to highlight in the year to come. Throughout the three-day event, exhibitors will have private, face-to-face, 30-minute meetings with motorsports editors, journalists and influencers.
This unique event serves as a platform to meet and collaborate with some of the top media companies and publications in the motorsports segment. Exhibitors walk away from the event confident in the coverage their products will receive as a result of their meetings. This article from Ford Muscle features McLeod Racing as a result of a meeting that took place at the Media Trade Conference.
“The MPMC Media Trade Conference is one of the best events a manufacturer can take part in each year. Creating the environment where editors, media and manufacturers can have focused, one-on-one meetings to discuss new products, projects and content development is something only MPMC can provide,” said Garrett Harmola, president/owner at Aldan American Suspension.
