A Word From Louisville Show Chairman Byron Stroud
“Louisville is a great central geographic location. The venue is conveniently located very near the international airport and across the street from ideal lodging. In addition, there’s free parking and a space that allows us to bring the entire show inside during the winter months. It’s a very comfortable environment.
“It is the industry’s longest running event, and it’s been there in good years and bad. Those bad years are a testament to some of the state associations stepping up to make sure it continues and is able to lend support for manufactured housing professionals when sales are rising and opportunity can be realized.”
