The inaugural RTO World in 2018 was a resounding success as rent-to-own professionals from around the globe gathered in St. Louis for the first-ever APRO and TRIB Group collaboration on a national rent-to-own convention and trade show. The brainchild of the two organizations brought more than 700 members from both organizations for the industry’s biggest event of the year and left many wanting more. This year’s RTO World, scheduled for August 6-8, at the newly remodeled Kentucky International Convention Center in Louisville will not disappoint!
