Journalists are invited to sign up for the 2018 MPMC Media Trade Conference at www.sema.org/mpmcmediaregister. Taking place Tuesday–Thursday, January 23–25, 2018, at the Embassy Suites by Hilton in Santa Ana, California, participating journalists will be able to sit down in up to 42 (14 each day) private, uninterrupted meetings with executives from top motorsports parts manufacturers in the industry.
Company representatives come to the meetings prepared to discuss everything from their newest product line to changes at their company to industry trends during their meetings with editors. Additionally, afternoon lunches and breaks provide further opportunities for meetings and networking.
Media participation is free to all editorial representatives, making it the most affordable and efficient way for reporters to get detailed information, specific to their audience's needs and interests, and gather a year's worth of editorial content.
Early registration guarantees that reporters will receive the best possible schedule prior to the event. Meetings are scheduled based on the companies that journalists select on their applications, so participants are encouraged to pay close attention to the companies they select. Journalists should also mark “Do Not Meet” for the companies outside of their editorial needs.
