"As some of you participated and witnessed at last year’s MFest (March 7-9 2008), it was the birth of something new and exciting for the BMW and other high-end Euro communities. During this first event, we had over 150 cars consisting of 95% BMW M cars, which ranged from older to the newest generation, as well as other high end European cars. And due to the overwhelming response, we’ve decided to hold it again this Labor Day weekend, August 29-31, 2008.

At MFest our motto is, "Redefining the enthusiast and the community through camaraderie." We thrive to bring the community together and always bring something new to the table for the participants and sponsors, and what better way to do this than in sunny Las Vegas, NV!"

MFest encompasses a three day non-stop action and excitement event for its participants, vendors and sponsors. There will be a go-kart shoot out hosted by sponsors allowing major exposure to fellow enthusiasts. A show and shine car competition which allows sponsors to come out and show off their products. And various night time activities for more “stage time” for sponsors. Our ultimate goal is to create a more relaxing environment were the participants and sponsors can have time to connect, be able to hear both sides and be able to grow together. We would like to make this event as special as possible to keep you anxious for the next.

At this time we would like to open the doors to other non-M BMW brothers (and sisters) that missed the previous event. We currently have over 200 vehicles already registered to attend, and we still have three more months until the next MFest! We are projecting more than 400 cars this time around!

We would like to invite you to come out and experience first hand what MFest is all about. Come have fun with us and support our fast growing community of “ENTHUSIASTS".

Update:

We are currently looking into the possibility of finding additional rooms at a different but close by Hotel from Red Rock ( i will meet with the manager of Red Rock on Monday and see if she can give us more rooms as per conference call this week Red Rock is at it's max capacity ), i will post the results on Monday and for those who don't have rooms yet pls pm me asap....just to give you guys an idea we have booked 250+ rooms( in less than a month) already and that's in Red Rock alone (as some people book their rooms else were or will be staying with friends/ family ) and for comparison, last March we booked a total of 120 rooms...thanks

We just got back from Vegas (we met with some of the sponsors, car clubs, and did a dry run) and I would like to thank the guys who went with me to Vegas (Robar, Batman and their wifey's)...we have alot of good news and a little bit of bad news (no more additional rooms at Red Rock)...all i can say for now is if you've been to the first MFest with us and like the first one ...imho this is by far the most exciting and the most fun event...but we will be needing everybody's cooperation and help to make this event possible...i will be posting a pre registration fees so everybody can pay online and this will help us greatly on better organizing the entire event...


Btw i will post the other hotel were you guys can book your rooms...

thanks

We should have the grp rate code by today or tomorrow for the JW Marriot http://www.jwlasvegasresort.com/ again guys spots are very limited so pls book your rooms as soon as i post the code and the rate ( $139 per night + tax )...note that JW Marriot is no more than 3 miles to Red Rock and you still can party/ participate on all the activites at Red Rock with us...

here's a post from a member who lives in Vegas about JW Marriot...

The rooms are huge, with giant marble bathrooms with all marble walk in rain showers. The hotel is a true 4+ star. It has one of the best spa/gym combinations in the city. It's attached to a low key but "classy" casino. Also, there's a great upscale restaurant there called "Carmel" with private curtained off booths for some footsie action under the table. My wife and I are staying there the weekend of our 22nd anniversary in early August. It is definitely our choice when looking for a local hotel. The only warning I would give about the hotel is that it is somewhat 'staid" and does not have the party atmosphere of the Red Rock.

note that the secured parking for Red Rock will be roped off and only attendies with the Mfest stickers will have access ( As Red Rock requested something to identify the cars who are from the Mfesters, so they will have an easy time monitoring cars and will be able to secure the area well, also for every bodies safety)...
