IMM 2017

About the IMM :

What date is it taking place?
The IMM 2017 Ireland is taking place from Thursday May 25th – Monday May 29th 2017.

Venue :

The camping and show will be held in Westport House, Westport, Co. Mayo.

What is an IMM?
For many Mini drivers an “International Mini Meeting”, or IMM, is a well known phenomenon, but for some it’s not clear what it’s all about. IMM is short for International Mini Meeting. It originated in 1978 in Germany when it started as a small 3 day camp event at Whitsun weekend. After several years its popularity had grown, even over the German borders and this resulted in an International event which takes place every year in a different country. Every 5 years we celebrate the Mini in England where the IMM takes place around the Minis birthday in August.

An IMM is a 3 day event for young and old. Besides the classic Mini, all derivatives and yes…even New Mini’s are welcome! The event starts on Friday afternoon when most of the participants arrive. After signing in, they find a good spot or go to the appointed place of their Mini club. The latter can vary at each event. The best thing to do is to place the Mini in such a way that everybody can have a good look at it. The tent is just a minor detail. On Friday evening the event is officially opened. Different activities will be organized for Mini drivers and Mini Clubs during the rest of the weekend. Recurring features are the Concourse d’Elegance, boot sale, traders area, dinner on Saturday, party on Saturday night, breakfast on Sunday and a closing party on Sunday night.

Even the Club competitions are a recurring feature. A new activity for the last few years is the Mini Parade. Lots of Minis queuing on local roads, sometimes causing a traffic jam, but always escorted by the police. Basically an IMM is all about socialising, meeting lots of other enthusiasts, relaxing and just having fun. After you’ve met and spoken with lots of others, bought all the parts your precious vehicle needs to become even more beautiful and had some fun, the IMM closes with a ceremony on Sunday night. During this event the awards are presented and the IMM key is handed over to the club which organises the event the following year. Of course you can leave your tent up for another night because you can stay until Monday morning. Then the event is really over and everybody leaves for home, dreaming of the next IMM!

Mini club of Ireand are planning to attend IMM 2017 and are putting the final things required in place over the last number of weeks. The main thing that members need to do at present is purchase your event ticket and let us know that you are attending. This should be a cracking event for any mini enthusiast over the 3 - 4 days which also takes in drives in some of the most scenic parts of the west of Ireland.

I'm glad I saw this thread.

May is when I'm expecting my new car, so I was going to place a thread to gauge what interest there would be for another run around the North East while I currently still have a MINI.

I guess that it would be too close to have something in later April or early May?

The IMM is the one to go to... and Having been to a number of these events I am planning to go to this one on our own door step, it is well worth the visit.
