Everyone I talk to is very pleased the show is moving forward in 2012. This year’s show is in a growth mode and we expect the show to be bigger and better than last year. “ said Ron Thomas, active retailer, community owner and Louisville Show Chairman. While it may not be a surprise to hear a Show Chairman say something like that, the sentiment is echoed in the feedback from other attendees and exhibitors. Perhaps most important is the fact that pre-show registrations are up from the surprising totals of 2011. Lorayne Scott, with Show Ways Unlimited – the firm which organizes the Louisville Show – told MHProNews that:We had 970 retailers, builder/developers, community owner/operator, and installers.  As for the exhibitors we had a total of 442.  The total attendance was 1412.” That total of 1412 from all facets of factory built housing made it one of the top 2 attended events in the manufactured housing industry for 2011. Numerous positive comments have come in from 2011 show attendees who are excited about the shows 2012 plan. One example is from Darrell Boyd with Triad Financial, who said, “I was pleasantly surprised at our attendance at the 2011 Louisville Manufactured Housing Show last year. I knew the 50 year history of the show and the spirit of our industry would bring us back. I just wasn’t sure what to expect in 2011. The traffic at our exhibitor booth was brisk and it seemed the renewed positive attitude of the attendees was infectious and spilled over during the show. I talked to many other exhibitors and manufacturers and they agreed with my sentiment. With the 2012 show approaching, I’m eagerly looking forward to our continued renewed growth.” The 2012 Louisville Show line up includes a strong cross section of free business building workshops and seminars, a special appearance and address by Cavco CEO and MHI Chairman Joe Stegmayer as well as even more homes and exhibitors than 2011. Free online registration is scheduled to end January 3. You can pre-register at this link, or get more information at this link.
