The Tunica Show has been in existence for 16 years. Our annual show brings out an array of new manufactured home designs, the latest in technology, the best in suppliers’ offerings and a look at all the newest amenities and system-build options the industry can offer. The Tunica Manufactured Housing Show has distinguished itself as the largest manufactured housing show in the world! We want to thank all of our exhibitors who make the show a success each year.
“We were pleased with the results of last year’s show for all of our exhibitors, retailers, builder/developers, community owners/operators, and installers,” said Keith Bennett, SCMHI Chairman for the 2014 Tunica Manufactured Housing Show. “The show provides numerous “opportunities to network”, as well as an opportunity for serious buyers to move forward with new and existing business relationships.”
The show, which drew 1,234 retailers, builder/developers, community owners/operators, and installers this past year, remains the leading industry event … covering an expansive region which stretches from Illinois all the way to East Texas. The 2014 show is scheduled for March 26 – 28, 2014. We will once again use QMS of Alpharetta, GA to facilitate our online registration. Their web link service provides fast and efficient registration both before and during the show. QMS is a service organization dedicated to the goal of providing our shows with an overall registration package that meets or exceeds all of their needs and expectations.
In 2014, over 80 new model homes are expected to be featured at the show. The models will offer a firsthand look at the latest technology, conveniences, efficiency, and state-of-the-art design modifications that have been developed during the past year. The don’t-miss showcase of homes is an essential element in getting a firsthand view for retailers, builder/developers, community owners/operators, and installers as they head into the spring selling season. Innovation is more important than ever and the showcase of homes makes certain that everyone sees, understands and can fully utilize the new technology found in our homes.
“The Tunica Show is an ideal opportunity to attend the latest in educational seminars… to enhance your business… and away to have fun while you are there” noted Gene Rogers, SCMHI Show Chairman for 2014.
Service and supplier exhibitors will number in the 100’s for the 2014 show. Supplier exhibitors are critical to our industry, providing vital services and products to the manufactured housing industry. Each year, this group of exhibitors showcases the newest technology, products and services that can be utilized by our industry.
“We depend upon each other within this industry and our service and supplier exhibitors ensure that everything that goes into building our manufactured housing products are superior,” Rogers said. “Their expertise across many areas translates into the best-built products.”

One of the ways we want to show our appreciation is through the exciting Sponsorship Program.
Sponsorships are an excellent brand builder for show exhibitors and offer an attractive array of special items at each level. As in previous years, the sponsorships include Gold, Silver and Bronze options and provide the levels of brand exposure that may fit best with an exhibitor’s marketing plan and budget. The shows past sponsors have been a key part of the success of each event. Sponsorship allows all of our sponsors to get the recognition and attendee awareness that are well deserved.
