We begin the new year with a lot going on at TRIB Group! To kick the year off, we again hosted our Winter Think Tank at the Las Vegas Market. This annual event gives our members a chance to get together for a brief meeting and to hear from our vendors before touring their showrooms. This year Ashley and Southern Motion sponsored a reception specifically for the Rent-to-Own channel. We enjoyed this, and we enjoyed viewing showrooms of other TRIB vendors and event sponsors.
Next up is Meeting of the Minds, once again at the Gaylord in Nashville. The event will be March 1 – 4 and will feature our increasingly popular Hot Show, as well as our network event which will be held at the Wild Horse Saloon. Our organization has been busy putting together a broad program of break-out sessions that are tailored for both owner/dealers and their managers. We are very pleased with the number of registrations we have and look forward to having a full house in Nashville.
Finally, we are excited to co-host with APRO the second annual RTO World, this time in Louisville, Kentucky Aug. 6 – 8. This event brings together the entire network of Rent-to-Own industry professionals for a trade show, networking and training event. The trade show will feature products from over 100 exhibitors who will be presenting the hottest technologies and products on the market. The TRIB Group Hot Show, a wildly popular buying event, will offer the opportunity to network and buy products in a fast-paced, fun format. Rent-to-Own peers and exhibitors will have the opportunity to network in Louisville. Details of the planned events will be released in the coming months. On the education side of the conference, owner/dealers as well as other employees will benefit from joining peer groups specifically designed for their role in the organization. Here they will share ideas, challenges and solutions.
TRIB Group looks forward to another great year of networking and conferences and welcomes any member involved or seeking to become involved with Rent-to-Own to reach out to TRIB Group and join us in 2019.
