With the new location of the Tunica Show at the Resorts Casino and Hollywood Casino, we as the SCMHI Board were anxious to see if the number of attendees would change or even decrease this year. The number of attendees actually exceeded our expectation and even surpassed the past three years Tunica Show attendance numbers.
The 2015 attendees were as follows: 1013 retailers, 82 community managers, 61 builder/developer, and 36 installers. With the exhibitor attendees, the total attendance for the show was 2239. MMHA along with AMHA thanks all of the attendees for making this year’s Tunica Show a huge success by your participation. A special thank you to all of our Sponsors for their continued support of the Tunica Show.
I made it a point to visit with several retailers and community managers from various states during the show to get their feed back on the new location and lay out of the show and I heard nothing but POSITIVE comments. They liked the convenience of all of the display homes being in one area; the lunch area being inside to avoid weather elements; the supplier exhibit area layout; and the informative educational seminars.
They also commented on the positive attitude of the employees of the two hotels and casinos and how much they made them feel welcomed. I also heard positive comments from the manufacturers and suppliers that they had a very good show.
There was lots of activity in both the supplier exhibit area and the display home area, retailers and mangers came to buy this year. Certainly we can continue as a Board to make improvements at this new location and we always welcome input from our attendees. I think we are off to a good start for the 2016 Tunica Show. We want to continue to make this the biggest and best outdoor manufactured home show in the United States. ##
