Signs of Recovery Ahead – Congress & Expo a Huge Success

Nearly 800 attendees, speakers, sponsors, and exhibitors helped make the 2011 Congress & Expo for Manufactured and Modular Housing a huge success. Attendees from all sectors of the industry convened in Las Vegas April 26-28 to take advantage of the educational sessions, land-lease community forum, business meetings, networking opportunities, and to see the latest and greatest products and services offered by the exhibitors and more.

Not only was attendance up six percent from 2010, but the optimism and determination of the industry was felt throughout the event.

It was evident that many came to do business with others as new relationships were formed and current ones nurtured. Attendees took advantage of the many workshops on subjects such as the Dodd Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act, the SAFE Act, social media and communications, emergency preparedness, and regulatory compliance issues.

They also heard from acclaimed Texas A&M real estate economist Dr. Mark G. Dotzour who encouraged optimism as he suggested that home sales will improve later this year, and successful country music industry professional Robin Crow, sponsored by GE Appliances, who shared that customer service and “going the extra mile” was the key to prosperity.

Always a highlight of the event was the 2011 National Awards Luncheon sponsored by Triad Financial Services. Here awards were presented to communities, retailers and companies who provide outstanding customer service and leadership for the industry.

Over 250 attended the NCC Consumer and Community Finance Forum sponsored by ROC USA, where they heard from some of the industry’s leading experts on topics such as rental and lease purchase programs, operating in-house finance programs and other finance issues facing manufactured home communities.

Lastly, the importance of membership to MHI, the national association representing the interests of the industry was heard throughout the event.
