The 2019 Motorsports Parts Manufacturers Council (MPMC) Media Trade Conference will be held January 22–24 at the Embassy Suites Orange County Airport North.
Applications are open for the 2019 Motorsports Parts Manufacturers Council (MPMC) Media Trade Conference, January 22–24, at the Embassy Suites Orange County Airport North in Santa Ana, California. MPMC members who are selected to exhibit at the 2019 event are encouraged to bring their newest line, or products they want most forward-facing 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. An article from Ford Muscle features McLeod Racing as a result of a meeting that took place at last year’s Media Trade Conference.
“The MPMC Media Trade Conference is one of the best events a manufacturer can take part in each year,” said Garrett Harmola, president and owner of Aldan American Suspension. “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.”
Only 100 exhibitor spots are available. Participants will be chosen using a random number lottery system. Manufacturers who submitted an application but were not selected for the 2018 event are automatically guaranteed a spot in the 2019 event if they submit a new application by the deadline of September 7, 2018. Exhibitor selection is available only for MPMC-member companies.
