Indiana Tour of Homebuilding Factories, Educational Seminars Return in 2021
Organizers for the annual MH FacTOURy Summit, with educational programming and tours of Indiana homebuilding plants, have called off the event previously scheduled for Aug. 3-4 due to continuing safety concerns in regard to the potential spread of the coronavirus.
Ron Breymier, executive director for the Indiana Manufactured Housing Association-Recreation Vehicle Indiana Council, said the cancelation was a difficult decision.
“We surveyed all of the manufacturers involved in hosting plant tours and had a lot of other conversations with industry leaders,” Breymier said. “It became apparent that the safest and most productive strategy would be to focus on the return of MH FacTOURy Summit on Aug. 3-4, 2021.”
Attendee and sponsor registration costs can be carried over to 2021. Organizers will consider any requests for reimbursement.
In its fifth year, the sit-down education sessions in conjunction with walking tours of Indiana’s manufactured housing plants is geared toward industry professionals who want the latest information and opportunities from the manufactured housing industry.
MH FacTOURy Summit Meets Industry Needs
“Each year we and our industry partners formulate a robust offering of seminars and factory tours for manufactured housing professionals who want to learn more about the latest building techniques, as well as marketing practices, finance options, purchasing, and sales strategies,” Breymier said.
The summit features a full day of seminars at the RV/MH Hall of Fame, 21565 Executive Parkway, Elkhart, Ind. The other day focuses on factory tours at several area home building facilities. Participating manufacturers have included Adventure Homes, Champion, Clayton Homes, and Fairmont Homes.
