TRADE DAYS: April 26th - 28th
PUBLIC DAYS: April 29th - May 1st
We are back and ready to go! Pennsylvania will once again host a factory built housing show – HOMExpo 2011. Last year's show was postponed due to the weak economy; however, in anticipation of an improved economy plans are underway moving the 2011 show to the spring and back to the York Expo Center.
"For the last 48 years PMHA has been instrumental in providing the factory-built housing industry in the Northeast and Mid-Atlantic region with an opportunity to showcase its best. We wanted to continue this exceptional format of introducing the industry to the latest floor plans and décor," stated show chairman, Dale Walker, Jr.
Industry Days at the show, as in the past, will offer all industry personnel the chance to learn of new trends, new products, new technologies and available services. In addition to the displays, the 2011 show will offer those attending an opportunity to attend morning educational programs. Due to the many changes in lending laws and building codes we felt it is important to offer opportunities for retailers, builders and community owners to understand changes in Federal and State laws and regulations. There will also be opportunities to learn how to market to today's consumers using the latest social media tools. This education/information event is one you can't afford to miss!
Public days are going to be better and bigger. The Pennsylvania show has a long tradition of opening its doors to the general public. This year, is no exception with plans underway to offer more for the consumers to see. First of all we have moved the industry days to begin on Tuesday so that we can have three full days for the public – Friday, Saturday and Sunday. As we have done in the past, homes fully decorated and landscaped will be open for touring, consumers will be able to see firsthand the beauty, variety, and craftsmanship of a factory built home. In addition we plan to have two halls filled with businesses selling products and services for use in any home – built in a factory or built on site. Invited are landscapers, remodelers, specialty contractors, alternative energy providers, shed builders, lawn care products and services, etc. In short, products and services for use in any home.
"We are putting together an advertising campaign to heavily promote both Industry and Public Days. Though we have had very good attendance numbers at the York Expo Center in the past, we strongly feel that the change in date will help to increase public attendance," stated Mary Gaiski, PMHA's Executive Vice President. There is no cost for retailers, builders and community owners and parking remains free as well. Non-exhibiting manufacturers and service/supplier who are members of PMHA must pay a fee of $100 per person and non-members will be charged $200 per person.
We are very excited about moving forward. Whether it is a first-time homebuyer, a move-up buyer or an empty nester, as the economy continues to improve, the factory-built housing industry needs to be there "where and when" people are ready to make a housing decision.
We are full steam ahead… don't miss the launch of our 49th year of showcasing our industry. HOMExpo 2011 will open to the industry on Tuesday, April 26 (9am – 5pm), Wednesday, April 27 (9am – 5pm) and Thursday, April 28 (9am – 1pm) and then the show will be ready for public viewing Friday, April 29 (9am – 8pm), Saturday, April 30 (9am – 8pm) and Sunday, May 1 (9am – 5pm).
