The session featuring these three industry leaders will begin at 8:45 AM sharp. They will be introduced by one or more of the executive directors of the Midwest Manufactured Housing Federation (MMHF).
The MMHF state execs are as follows, in alphabetical order by last name.

A number of other state executives are planning to be at the Louisville Manufactured Housing Show too, along with an anticipated over 2,000+ attendees and exhibitors.
The Louisville Show has been the best attended event in manufactured housing for the last two years. Pre-registrations suggest that 2015 will show yet another increase in attendance over the previous year.
New Homes on display – Manufacturers.
Financing – homes, inventory and communities.
Services and Suppliers – compare providers all under the same climate controlled roof.
Business Building Seminars – see floorplan map for location.
