THIS IS WHY – The Tunica Manufactured Housing Show – WILL always be there…

by Dennis Hill

Because…

  • The Tradition Is Solid and Dependable dennis-hill-michelle-middleton-showwaysunlimited-posted-mhpronews-com-
  • The Time Is Right
  • The Marketplace is Relevant
  • The Location Is Right

The Tunica Show has more homes than any other MH Industry event! In 2015 The Tunica Show registered retailers, builder/developers, community owners/operators, and installers from all over the region. The show drew 1,192 retailers, builder/developers, community owners/operators, and installers this past year, from an expansive region which stretched from Illinois all the way to East Texas. The number of attendees actually exceeded our expectations and even surpassed last year’s attendance numbers. This is a significant coup for The Tunica Show, because it means new business relationships abound!

It has been shown statistically that regional shows draw primarily from a 200-mile radius of the event. Even national shows draw the majority of their attendance from a 400-mile radius. So there can be no question that the retailers, builder/developers, community owners/operators who attend The Tunica Show represent a specific customer base. People want to use their time more productively – their priorities have changed. They have neither the funds nor the inclination to spend days and days traveling. They want to attend something close by that will enable them to get back to work and back to their families as quickly as possibleThey are unlikely to attend another show, in another part of the country, because they feel it would be superfluous and inconvenient.

This is a time for preparation, accepting new challenges, changing direction if necessary, but mostly a time for being there. Manufacturers and suppliers will be at the show because they want to maintain customer relationships. They know that even when someone doesn’t purchase or order right now, they will in the near future. So this is not a time for cutting ties, but for strengthening them. You’ll find thousands of your colleagues doing the same thing, so come to the show and see how the collective spirit prevails. It will give you a boost!

Resorts Casino and Hotel

All seminars will be held at the Resorts Casino in the Magnolia Room. This area is located on the second level of the casino. The SCMHI luncheon will be held on Tunica4-resize-940x430the third level at the Resorts Hotel in the “event center” on Wednesday, March 23rd and Thursday, March 24th. If you are looking for “optimum convenience” to the manufacturer’s exhibit area, we suggest you stay at the Resorts Casino and Hotel. When you walk out of the rear entrance of the Resorts Hotel… you are walking directly into the manufacturer’s exhibit area. This location couldn’t be any more convenient!

Resorts Hotel & Casino call 1-866-706-7070 for reservations.

Mention Group Code: MFH2016 (Resorts)

Hollywood Casino and Hotel

All service and supplier exhibits will be at the Hollywood Casino and Hotel. The exhibits will be located in the grand ballroom. Shuttle bus pick up delivery point to hollywood-exteriorthe manufacturers exhibits will be located in this area. We are going to have shuttle buses run from the service and supplier exhibit area to the manufactures exhibits on Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday. All registration for the show will occur at the Hollywood Casino. If you are exhibiting in the service and supplier exhibit area the Hollywood provides optimum convenience for exhibitors. Last year many exhibitors talked about how convenient it was at the Hollywood Casino and Hotel for service and supplier exhibitors. We would agree with this assessment. If you are looking for closeness to all the hotel facilities as well as the supplier exhibits then the Hollywood would be your choice.

Buffets will be open at the Resorts as well as the Hollywood for breakfast, lunch and dinner during the show. At night the Resorts has the 61 Grille streak house (open Monday-Thursday). In addition, the Hollywood property will have the Fairbanks Steakhouse (open Monday – Thursday)

Hollywood Hotel and Casino call 800-871-0711 for reservations.

The rooms at Hollywood Casino and Resorts Casino are well-priced at $64.

In 2016, 70 new model homes are expected to be featured at the show. These models will offer a firsthand look at the latest technology, conveniences, efficiency, and state-of-the-art design modifications that have been developed during the past year. The don’t-miss showcase of homes is an essential element in getting a firsthand view for retailers, builder/developers, community owners/operators, and installers as they head into the spring selling season. Innovation is more important than ever and the showcase of homes makes certain that everyone sees, understands and can fully utilize the new technology found in our homes.

Continuing the excitement that accompanies another year at the Tunica Manufactured Housing Show, are two free lunches that will be provided for attendees. This is a convenient and delicious way to luncheon at the show site and a good way to maximize your time. Our SPECIAL LUNCHES will be held at the RESORTS HOTEL on the third level. The annual BLOODY MARY MIXER will be held Thursday morning, March 24th as a casual start to that day’s show schedule in the service and supplier exhibit area at the HOLLYWOOD HOTEL.
