Tunica Manufactured Housing Show Flash Report

March 29th, 2013 Comments off

The 2013 Tunica Manufactured Home Show wrapped up today with light rains falling after two days of sunshine. The initial post show numbers reflect that a total of 2,204 total attendees and exhibitors came, a significant increase over 2012. Manufacturers, suppliers and lenders indicated they had ‘a good show.’ Association leaders stated the show saw ‘an upbeat mood,’ with more attendees ‘cautiously optimistic’ about the year ahead. On the lighter side, Tamas Kovach, the MHProNews publisher and manager’s son and the show’s ‘youngest exhibitor,’ handed out some 700 business cards to attendees over 2 days. Young Kovach said “It was a great show!” and plans to return in 2014.

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.
