Terra Consultancy are delighted to announce some fantastic news!
Terra is bringing The Miss and Mister Deaf International Pageant (MMDI) to London from 25th July to 4th August 2014.
MMDI London 2014 is being organised by a very experienced team of Miss and Mister Deaf International Board members in Las Vegas, and Terra Consultancy are extremely proud to have been chosen as their UK organising partner.
While MMDI will be dealing with all the contestant entries and overall pageant format, Terra will be working closely with them in developing the local event programme, including organising the venue, marketing and promotion, ticket sales and initial sponsorship enquiries and opportunities.
Terra will bring to the table our in-depth experience of successful event management and organising Deaf events in the UK with successful logistics, marketing and promotional abilities.
Some of you might remember back last summer when the Deaflympics was in Sofia, I blogged about the great time everyone had there watching the athletes from all over the world.
At the same time as the Deaflympics, the Miss and Mister Deaf International (MMDI) Pageant 2013 took place with dozens of talented young deaf women and men from all around the world competing in a fun beauty and talent contest. These savvy, goal-orientated contestants from all over the world were competing to advance their personal, educational, career, and humanitarian goals, seeking to improve their own lives as well as the lives and goals of others.
It all started back in 2010 in Las Vegas alongside Deaf World Expo and the festival celebrating Deaf artists and performers, fashion designers, musicians, dancers and comedy was where MMDI was launched.
It was such a brilliant success that they held it again in Orlando, Florida in 2011, Ankara, Turkey in 2012 then alongside the Deaflympics in 2013 in Sofia, Bulgaria.
The current Miss Deaf International 2013 is Lais Goncalves (Miss Deaf Brazil)
and Mister Deaf International 2013 is Rafael Grombelka (Mrister Deaf Germany).
So now Terra is having brilliant news and brining MMDI 2014 to LONDON this summer !!!
We had London 2012’s amazing Olympics and Paralympics and the brilliant fireworks of our New Year’s Eve celebrations seen all the world – now MMDI !!!
We think MMDI London 2014 will be more popular than ever before, attracting even more contestants, volunteers and spectators from over 25 countries, shining a spotlight on the worldwide Deaf community and highlighting all their positive attributes.
It will help our aims as a not-for profit ViVAsPro organisation that promises to empower, enhance, and support the growing community of Deaf women and men and give a fantastic opportunity for competitors to show their talents.
