Industry professionals from the western U.S. and other further off locales will gather at Wild Horse Pass Hotels & Casino May 15-17.

Clayton Homes CEO Kevin Clayton will offer the keynote address on “Elevating the MH Industry”, including information on his experience working toward a New Class of Home that receives on-par treatment compared with the site-built market in the areas of finance, appraisal and zoning.

Clayton also will talk about the use of technology to support changing preferences of some buyers. He also will provide an update on Clayton Homes’ efforts to improve team member experience.

Other talks include “Social Media Magic” by Darren Krolewski, co-president and CBDO of MHVillage/Datacomp, as well as Suzanne Felber, home merchandising and design professional at Lifestylist, who will talk about  “How to Show and Sell Manufactured Homes to Today’s New Discerning Buyers”.

The event is put on by the Manufactured Housing Industry of Arizona, the state’s trade organization that is the collective voice of Arizona’s factory-built housing professionals.

About two dozen manufactured housing professionals will present to attendees on a variety of topics. These include topics of marketing, finance, housing law, energy efficiency, community infrastructure and maintenance.

Felber is a national award winner for work with factory-built homes. She will present to attendees on “Staged to Sell: How to Show and Sell Manufactured Homes”.

Felber began her work with factory-built homes after a successful career in site-built and luxury homes.

“I was told time and again that my ideas weren’t how we did it ‘in our industry’,” Felber said. “Thanks to forward thinking companies like Cavco and Clayton Homes, our customers can get the looks they want but still stay within their affordable home budgets.

“Even on a tight budget, it’s possible to stage a home to turn a ‘looker’ into a buyer,” she said.
