why no Mini cars?

I know that MINI isn't a proper BMW (no propeller badge) but the parent company is BMW and of course, the next gen MINI is expected to share it's platform with the next gen 1 series. The MINI brand is also a lead-in to the BMW brand so why aren't their any MINI cars represented at Bimmerfest? I believe last year or the year before, I saw one RR Phantom there. Again, that's not a proper BMW (no propeller badge) but of course BMW owns Rolls-Royce.

Frankly, I'd like to see all BMW products at the fest. It would be even more cool to see all of their products coming together for the fest.
