Manufactured housing industry professionals tour homes in Biloxi during the 2023 show.

The Biloxi Manufactured Housing Show and Expo returns to the Gulf Coast for the third year with about 90 exhibitors and dozens of homes on display from 11 builders.

“We have 49 homes, up from 35 homes the previous year,” Mississippi Manufactured Housing Association Executive Director Jennifer Hall said. “We are maxed out with that number. We do have some new manufacturers, too, and we’re excited about that.”

Hall said Dr. Lesli Gooch and Mark Bowersox from the Manufactured Housing Institute will provide an industry update from a national perspective, including an update on pending U.S. Department of Energy mandates for manufactured housing.

There also will be a lenders panel, and a presentation on tech and marketing trends from MHVillage Co-President and Chief Business Development Officer Darren Krolewski.

MMHA works with the Alabama Manufactured Housing Association each year to host the event at the IP Casino Resort in Biloxi, a carry-over from the former Tunica Show.

“A month ahead of schedule we were setting records for registration, vendors, and sponsors participating in the Biloxi Show,” AMHA Executice Director Lance Latham said. “We couldn’t be more excited for what’s in store this year in Biloxi! Trust me when I say this is one industry event you do not want to miss!”

The Biloxi Show in 2024 is Monday, March 18 through Wednesday, March 20.

“Everyone is excited about coming back to Biloxi for the show. They love coming down for show, for the casino, and for the area’s amazing restaurants,” Hall said.

In addition to the many attendees and exhibitors at the show, the two associations will host myriad public officials from surrounding counties.

“We will have public officials come tour the homes on Wednesday,” Hall said. “We have everything set up and looking so nice, it’s a great time to get people through these homes to see what they’re missing and help them gain perspective on the opportunity to provide more affordable housing in their cities.
