After the first RMAP board meeting of the year, It became clear that RMDE would need to be restructured to keep it financially viable. While the dates (August 22-23) remain in place, it appears the restructured RMDE 2018 will have to be focused on providing increased coverage of the latest cars, trucks and crossover SUVs at the event.
The reason for this is car makers increased focus on return on investment with events like RMDE throughout the country. The RMAP board hopes to keep this on your "can't miss" list of events for 2018, but will be mandating coverage from all participants in order to keep RMDE viable. Keep watching this area as specific details on #RMDE18 continue to be released in the near future.
