Association of Progressive Rental Organizations | America’s Champion for Rent-to-Own

Missouri Rental Dealers Association 2019 Heartland of America Next Week June 11-13

The Missouri Rental Dealers Association [MRDA] will meet Tuesday, June 11 through Thursday, June 13 at the Lodge of Four Seasons Resort in Lake Ozark, Missouri for its 15th Annual Heartland of America Regional Trade Show and Seminar. MRDA is dedicated to making the 2019 trade show its biggest and best ever. 

MRDA President John Cleek, Jr. announced that vendor booths are completely sold out. “We have 70 booths representing 45 vendor companies! We are still looking for more dealer companies from Missouri and the surrounding states to attend,” he says. The show is targeted for rent-to-own dealers in Arkansas, Illinois, Iowa, Kansas, Kentucky, Oklahoma, Tennessee, and Missouri. Dealers from other states are also welcome to attend.

MRDA is offering one free registration per dealer company if they are a member of their state association. MRDA will also pay for a dealer’s hotel room for one night if they are a first-time attendee or haven’t attended in two years.

Attendees of the three-day event will have the opportunity to network with fellow dealers; talk with local and regional vendors; take advantage of show specials at the vendor showcase; and also learn about products at two vendor training sessions. Ashley Furniture will present one of the product training sessions while the other will be co-presented by O’Rourke Sales and LG Electronics.

The event will also include a vendor showcase reception, a welcome cocktail reception, a bass fishing tournament, a golf tournament, a five-hour vendor showcase, and a dinner and awards banquet. Todd Homberger of Buddy’s Home Furnishings will give the keynote presentation on Thursday morning.
