SECO Conference of Community Owners Chooses Virtual Format for 2021

SECO21 will be a virtual event again, capitalizing on the success of the SECO20 format with an improved digital platform to replicate the attendee, presenter, exhibitor experience, manufactured housing professionals have come to appreciate from the annual gathering.

Please join us on Sept. 27 for the 11th anniversary at the SECO21 National Conference of Community Owners, organized for community owners, educating, and representing all parts of the manufactured housing industry.

Last year, SECO20 exceeded expectations for the first-of-its-kind virtual event, attracting 487 attendees. Based on the overwhelming success of SECO20, coupled with increased familiarity with virtual engagements, organizers anticipate a significant increase of attendees at SECO21.

All SECO21 attendees and exhibitors in the manufactured housing industry will benefit from the unique virtual platform that allows all attendees, vendors, sponsors, and state executives to interact directly one-on-one, in small or large groups. The committed planning group of manufactured housing professionals that supports SECO is assembled and is dedicated to the continued effort of sharing best practices and forming new ideas.

The Dates for SECO are Sept. 27 – Oct. 1.

“We are pleased to once again partner with MHVillage to program and produce the virtual event,” SECO Co-Founder David Roden said. “Our attendees can anticipate live interaction with industry exhibitors, as if you were walking the actual trade show floor. We also are coordinating a robust set of educational presentations, workshops, and panel discussions.”

SECO21 Goes Virtual Again for COVID-19 Limitations

For more than a year, COVID-19 and associated protocols have kept people at home, or in as limited circulation as possible. However, the manufactured housing industry is essential and work must continue in the safest way possible to provide much needed homes and communities for retirees, individuals, and families.

SECO21 will be held on video screens nationwide, with 2- to 3-hour segments that allow manufactured housing professionals to continue their daily work and get the industry interaction and experience they need to be successful.
