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. The IMM 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.
