    I'm not sure what the font is - I'm only answering because nobody else is

    Anyway, I'd wager that is a custom drawn Avant Garde Bold / Semibold variation...

    Why? The slanted 'M' resembles the M in 'avant garde bold (or semibold) alternates' similarly, it forms a ligature with the 'E' (meaning they are joined) once again, like the avant garde alternates set. The circular letters (the C and the O) are geometrically perfect, ie, circular rather than oval. The difference of course is that this face is composed of separate 'tramlines' unlike any commercial variation I have seen - which is what leads me to believe it was customised for the event.

    With that said, the font is hardly suitable for body copy so I'd imagine you want to use it for a logo? If that is the case, and you can't track down the real face, then I'd recommend buying a copy of Avant Garde Bold and Avant Garde Bold Alternates, and customising it yourself, for your own purposes. Good luck, hope that helps

    that's definitely a custom font. if there's a slight chance that was a font, then odds are it's not available for the computer.

    anyways, try dafont, they have a lot fo theme fonts.
