Summer/Fall Manufactured Housing Industry Trade Shows
MHVillage and Datacomp attend approximately 20 manufactured housing industry trade shows each year, many of which we sponsor, register at as exhibitors and often present in seminar and education settings.
From Vegas to Orange Beach, Ala., and Austin, Texas to Washington, D.C., there is a lot to learn at manufactured housing industry trade shows whether you build homes, own a community, run a retail center or provide products and services to the industry.
This post will continue to be updated throughout the year to list industry events, locations, venues and information on how to attend. The spring/summer seasons are busy ones for the manufactured housing industry trade show, and new opportunities will be logged in each month and as the seasons change.
So enjoy perusing these events, and we hope that you are able to make one or two manufactured housing industry trade shows. Happy learning, happy networking!
