A Little ‘Oh, no’ drama, but the Show is a Go

January 21st, 2013 Comments off

A source at the Louisville Manufactured Housing Show has told MHProNews that: “There is a real hunger out there for business building seminars and information.” Along with 39 new models—including community series homes—and 80 exhibitors, the networking, dealmaking, and education have all blended together to create an unbeatable event to start the new year. With brisk temps, clear roads and sunshine, attendance is expected to rise from 2012, and increased pre-registrations have reflected that expectation. Exhibitor complaints about a non-sanctioned “luncheon” on Wednesday prompted the Show to make the signage shown in the photo which will be posted in the KEC’s North Wing lobby. Despite this bit of drama, show management is confident that the event will be a big success. Click here for more information about the real event.

Tony Kovach will disclose proven strategies to attract more customers to retail and to communities, and Dick Ernst will moderate a panel of the top seven MH lenders, each of whom will give their best shot.
