The 2017 Tunica Manufactured Housing Show is Almost Here!
The Southeast’s premier event for manufactured housing professionals, the 2017 Tunica Manufactured Housing Show, will present an opportunity to see the latest industry trends, tour model homes from the region’s leading manufactured home builders, participate in informative seminars, and network with fellow professionals.
The midwestern manufactured housing industry show in Louisville, Kentucky show two months ago was well attended and generated a lot of excitement by attendees and exhibitors alike. That show was a prelude to the upcoming traditional spring gathering in Tunica, Mississippi as well as the unofficial start to the manufactured home selling season. This year’s Tunica Manufactured Housing Show will undoubtedly carry forward the same enthusiasm and optimism into what portends to be a successful 2017 for the manufactured housing industry.
This year’s Tunica Manufactured Housing Show is once again located in the resort community of Tunica, Mississippi along the banks of the mighty Mississippi River nearby the vibrant city of Memphis, Tennessee. The show dates are March 29-31,2017 at two great Tunica venues: Hollywood & Resort Casinos.
For almost 20 years the Tunica Manufactured Housing Show has been the premier manufactured home industry event in the southeast. This annual show brings an array of new manufactured home designs, the latest in technology, the best in supplier offerings and a look at all the newest amenities and system-built options the industry has to offer. This year’s show will have the largest amount of factory built homes displayed in one location anywhere in the Southeastern United States. As many as 65 furnished display models of all sizes and styles will be shown completely installed in a park-like setting. And the seminars for 2017 will continue the tradition that has brought ‘standing room only’ crowds and enthusiasm.
Industry Trends and Opportunities at Tunica
Each year the Tunica Show offers a great opportunity, at a great time and great location for industry professionals to get a grasp on where the industry is headed in the near and long term. As always the industry will display great homes, products, services and information that will appeal to the American home shopper seeking affordable high-quality innovative housing, which is exactly what today’s modern manufactured homes and modular homes represent.
This year, the manufactured home industry arrives in Tunica, Mississippi filled with optimism, enthusiasm, and anticipation for 2017 and beyond. This year’s optimism is buoyed by recent political events that could very well be the impetus for the unprecedented growth of the industry moving forward. Those events have been well chronicled here by the Manufactured Home team on a weekly basis, reporting on the industry struggles with onerous legislation and regulations. These struggles combined with a sluggish economy has inhibited the manufactured housing’s retail and financial sectors for far too long.
It has become apparent here at MFH and throughout the industry that many of those inhibitors may be diminished in the not so distant future. As such, many feel the potential of the manufactured home industry going forward is seemingly unlimited.
To maximize and capitalize on that potential requires a vibrant online presence, a synergistic promotional program, and a dynamic marketing of manufactured housing on today’s valuable social networks, specifically and directly aimed at potential homeowners.
As our industry moves forwards into this bright future, it must do so in a way that also acknowledges and accepts the changing dynamics of today’s manufactured home homebuyer. Statistical surveys by the real estate industry have shown that an overwhelming number, over 80%, of home shoppers are looking online for their future home, and they want to know every detail possible about the home and the seller before they see it.
In 2016 the manufactured home industry produced, shipped and sold over 81,000 manufactured homes, marking the fifth straight year of consistent double-digit growth, an indicator that homebuyers are realizing that a manufactured home meets their definition of “everything a home should be.” The industry has the capacity, structure, and know-how to serve the quality affordable housing needs of thousands of more citizens seeking the American dream of homeownership.
With only three weeks remaining before the Tunica Manufactured Housing Show, attendees and exhibitors are encouraged to visit the show’s website for more information or make reservations to attend or exhibit at this premier event.
