This just in from Barry at MC2 Mag:
As we all need to plan our vacations this year, we at MC2 have been told by our friends that the dates for MTTS Part II are as follows:
Miami, FL. June 13-15.
Boston, MA. June 20-22
Chicago, IL. July 11-13
Los Angeles, CA. July 18-20
The Miami and Boston dates and locations are 100% locked down, but our info on Chicago and LA are not yet concrete, as MINI is still working on these times and locations. We feel they’re secure enough to inform everyone at this time.
Just what they’re planning at these locations, we don’t know for sure, but we will get back to you ASAP when we know more. Until then, we cannot reveal anything greater than we write here.
We will be at all four of these events with staff and support team of writers, photographers and video team, so do let us see your classic and new mini if it’s worth featuring in MC2.
If you have any ideas of how we can cooperate with each other in reaching our mutual audience, then please do let me know soon, as I am making plans to be at MINIs On Top (June 27-29) now. In conversation with the MOT folks, we are wanting to reach out to our advertisers so that we may collect enough products to make up the 2nd largest prize this year- to build someone’s MINI from nothing but aftermarket products! We’re looking for all sorts of things, so e-mail me soon.
Our major events for 2008 are AMVIV, MOT, then onwards to the event of the decade at Magical Mystery MINI Tour, San Francisco, Labour Day weekend 2008. We are planning on 1,000-1,500. I am in daily touch with Norm at the sponsoring club (REME) and am somewhat responsible for sponsors and vendors in working with Norm. It’s going to be BIG and we’re wanting to invite a selected amount of companies with an eye towards some exclusivity to your market segment, so start reaching out to me soon please, as there are only 30 tents available.
Thanks for your help..
