The Media Trade Conference makes it possible for media representatives to take part in up to 42 (14 per day) private, uninterrupted meetings with exhibitors from motorsports parts manufacturers.
Journalists are encouraged to register early for the 2020 Motorsports Parts Manufacturers Council (MPMC) Media Trade Conference to receive the best possible schedule. Taking place January 21–23, at the Embassy Suites Orange County Airport North in Santa Ana, California, the Media Trade Conference makes it possible for media representatives to take part in up to 42 (14 per day) private, uninterrupted meetings with exhibitors from motorsports parts manufacturers.
By attending the conference, reporters can ask questions about the topics in which they are most interested, from exhibitor product lines to industry trends, and photograph products as they see fit.
Media participation is free to all editorial media representatives, including editors, reporters, freelance journalists and photographers, providing the most effective and affordable way for reporters to get detailed information specific to their audience’s needs and interests, and gather a year’s worth of editorial content.
Journalists who register by December 19, will receive their schedules in advance, as exhibitor meetings fill up fast and are scheduled based on the companies that journalists select on their applications. Those who register afterward will receive their schedules on site.
While it is recommended that media mark “Do Not Meet” for exhibitors that do not appeal to their audience or readership, leaving exhibitors marked as “Okay to Meet” will increase the likelihood that media have full schedules. Exhibitors are not notified as to the media’s selections.
