2017 MPMC Media Trade Conference Press Registration Open

  Media Trade Conference
Journalists and reporters can participate in private meetings with some of the industry’s top performance-product manufacturers during the 2017 Media Trade Conference in Santa Ana, California.

Journalists are invited to sit down in private, uninterrupted meetings with representatives from top motorsports parts producers during the 2017 Motorsports Parts Manufacturers Council (MPMC) Media Trade Conference. The conference, taking place Tuesday–Thursday, January 24–26, 2017, at the Embassy Suites Orange County Airport North in Santa Ana, California, features companies that are members of SEMA’s MPMC.

Reporters can select representatives from the companies they wish to meet to ensure relevancy to their outlets by registering at www.sema.org/mtcreg. Early registration guarantees that reporters will receive the best possible schedule in advance of
the event.

SEMA makes every effort to match journalists with the companies they indicate they’re interested in, so participants are encouraged to pay close attention to the companies they select. Journalists should also mark “Don’t want to meet” for companies outside of their editorial needs. Only one registration is needed per media group; however, freelance writers should register independently.

For questions regarding press registration, contact Della Domingo at dellad@sema.org.
