RentDirect Breaks Records in Sin City

RentDirect Director Bruce Manning

RentDirect Nationwide held its bi-annual 2019 Meeting and Hot Show Auction February 10-13 at The Venetian/Palazzo and Sands Expo in Las Vegas, NV. The event, part of Nationwide Marketing Group’s “Thrive” Primetime show, saw a 50 percent increase in attendance over last August’s event with more than double the sales at its Hot Show Auction. APRO’s Executive Director Jill McClure and General Counsel Ed Winn were also in attendance, alongside RentDirect Director Bruce Manning, providing rent-to-own industry updates and legal advice at the events trade show.

Before the Hot Show and Auction got started, Manning presented the services and education exclusively available to RentDirect members. Attendees were educated on the company’s Exchange program that features a convenient way to order smaller quantities of TV sets or consumer electronics directly from their distributing partners. Manning also talked about the health and workers comp insurance offered by their partnership with CoAdvantage. McClure informed attendees about APRO’s members-only benefits including wage-and-hour consultations, insurance services, and last but not least, legal advice from General Counsel Ed Winn.

RentDirect’s Hot Show Auction was up more than 50 percent in sales over last August’s event.

At the event, Manning distributed an industry-specific survey to attendees to collect real-time data. The questionnaire supplied statics on RTO information including past due accounts, website traffic, the percentage of product type rented and preferred promotional platforms to name a few. He also emphasized RentDirect’s digital marketing services and gave everyone in attendance a free website design with the ability to feature unlimited products and e-commerce capabilities.

“This year our focus is to showcase our marketing services,” says Manning. “Attendees really enjoyed the educational experience and took full advantage of learning more about all that we offer.”
