We’re back from the Tunica Manufactured Housing Show. It was a great show and despite a few minor hitches, Harrah’s Convention Center was a good venue. Thanks to everyone who stopped by the MHMSM.com booth to see us and to those who attended our “Dominate Your Local Market” seminar and helped make it such a success.

Day One (Wednesday) brought clouds, cool temperatures and a stiff wind. That moved much of the activity from the homes on display outdoors into the Ballroom. That brought quite few visitors to our booth and we had some great interaction with our visitors.
Wednesday afternoon, Tony and I presented the “Dominate Your Local Market” presentation to a smaller than expected but enthusiastic crowd. Interaction was so good that we ran overtime answering attendees questions.

“Dominate Your Local Market” was preceded by Don Westphal’s excellent presentation, “Grow Your Market Share with Easy Community Upgrades!”, on simple things owners and managers can do to upgrade their communities. Don has had long experience in the industry and gave some solid tips that communities can put to use immediately.
Grant Kitching of Connexion Technologies showed how those same community owners and managers can increase their revenue stream at no cost to themselves by simply changing how TV, Internet and Telecommunications are delivered within the community in his informative session, “Generate additional income from your MH Community – at no cost to you!”.
On Thursday, the weather turned for the better and attendees attention shifted to the outdoor exhibits of homes. I was pleasantly surprised at the number and quality level of the homes on display and I think it was a very positive showing for the industry.
Feedback the we heard about the show was almost all good, making this two very well-received shows in a row (Louisville and Tunica) so we send a “job well done” to Dennis Hill and the folks at Show Ways and Sherrie Norris and the Alabama MHA and Jennifer Hall and the Mississippi MHA.
We look forward to coming back to Tunica next year and now on to Tulsa!
