Save the Date – SECO 2017

350+ small and mid-size manufactured home community owners and other industry personnel will attend SECO17 on October 11-12, 2017 in Marietta, Georgia.

New location this year:

Hilton Atlanta/Marietta Hotel and Conference Center
Marietta, Georgia

This year we’ll be meeting at the idyllic, and historic, Hilton Atlanta/Marietta Hotel and Conference Center. Their grand structure and idyllic location warmly welcome guests traveling for SECO17. Stay at this hotel in Marietta, GA, and be near hiking, mountain trails and the on-site City Club Marietta Golf Course.

Here’s just some of what SECO has to offer:

  • Network with Fellow Community Owners and Managers.
  • Hear the Good, the Bad & the Ugly from Fellow Community Owners
  • Explore New Ways to Run Your Community
  • Acquire the Knowledge to Better Your Bottom-line
  • Get Tips from the Experts – Steps to Becoming More Efficient
  • New Ways to Finance
  • Walk Through Affordable Community Series Manufactured Homes & Interact with Manufacturers
  • Share Ideas and Best Practices to Ensure Greater Success.
  • 501(c)(3) dedicated to community education

Community owners, managers, vendors and other industry personnel from 25+ states are expected. Educational workshops, presentations and panel discussions will complement three days of networking.

Who should attend? Anyone that owns or has an interest in the health and operation of manufactured home communities. Programming is focused on tactics that can benefit those owning 1 – 100 communities. This would certainly include the owners and investors, but also be beneficial for general managers and managers. The networking opportunity with owners/operators will be beneficial for lenders, suppliers, home manufacturers and corporate property managers as well. But there is no mistake – this is a gathering directed by community owners for community owners.

MHVillage, the nation’s number one website for buying, selling, and renting mobile and manufactured homes, has announced that it will be exhibiting at the 2017 Tunica Show for Manufactured Housing from March 29-31, 2017, in Tunica, Mississippi.

MHVillage Will Exhibit at The 2017 Tunica Show for Manufactured Housing Professionals

As the nation’s largest outdoor manufactured housing show, the 2017 Tunica Show will feature 70 homes on display from 16 prominent manufacturers. Exhibits by over 90 suppliers will represent every facet of the manufactured housing industry, from manufactured home transport and installation, to building materials, financing and professional services.

“We’re excited to once again be a part of this important event for manufactured housing professionals,” said Darren Krolewski, Executive Vice President, Marketing and Business Development. “Every year, the Tunica Show brings together the industry’s best and brightest in the region, and we look forward to demonstrating how the manufactured home retailers and communities in attendance can utilize MHVillage to grow their business.”

Founded in 2004, MHVillage.com is the largest and most active online marketplace for manufactured housing, with listings for over 28,000 homes, 37,000 communities and 2,900 retailers nationwide. More than 20 million consumers begin their home search with MHVillage annually, resulting in sales transactions in excess of $2.5 billion.

With a footprint covering every manufactured housing market, MHVillage will be showcasing their robust lead generation platform, unparalleled traffic generation capabilities, and custom-tailored advertising solutions. MHVillage is uniquely capable of helping manufactured housing industry professionals gain more business online: community owners and managers, retailers, lenders and builder/developers all utilize MHVillage.com to great effect.

Among the advertising products and services MHVillage will be exhibiting at the 2017 Tunica Show is a marketing program for retailers of Champion Home Builders, a leading producer of modular and manufactured homes, that enables visitors to MHVillage.com to search over 600 new home models from the Champion family of brands and immediately connect with authorized Champion retailers and manufactured home communities where those homes are available for purchase or rental.

“There has been tremendous interest on our website for new homes,” commented Krolewski. “Through our relationship with Champion, we have the unique ability to match Champion’s innovative home designs with the retailer and community inventory already listed on MHVillage so that the consumer can easily locate and view the models that interest them.”

The 2017 Tunica Show also marks the first time MHVillage has sponsored the Tunica Show website, lending its online marketing expertise to the successful promotion of the event to manufactured housing professionals nationwide.

Located at the Hollywood and Resorts Casinos in Tunica, Mississippi, the 2017 Tunica Show begins Wednesday, March 29 and continues through Friday, March 31, with an afternoon of pre-show educational seminars on Tuesday, March 28. As an industry trade event, the 2017 Tunica Show is not open to the public.

From The Tunica Show website:

During its long history, the Tunica Show has grown to include virtually every supplier and manufacturer who has wanted to capture the southeast market. As home designs changed, as they became more complex and more beautiful, as they incorporated state-of-the-art features that appealed to every segment of consumers, our exhibitors recognized that the showcase represented by the Tunica Show was valuable as a marketing medium. Exhibiting at Tunica offers you one of the best ways to get in front of your customers and prospects in a relatively short amount of time. Tunica gives you the opportunity to not only show your homes, products, or services, but also creates that all important first impression. The Tunica Show is worth the effort!

MHVillage has been exhibiting at the Tunica show for years – and 2017 will be no exception! We can’t wait to see all our Southeastern clients again. For more information on this incredible industry show, be sure and go to the The 2017 Tunica Show website and sign up for their email list.
