SECO18 draws 350-plus small- and mid-size manufactured home community owners and operators Oct.10-11, 2018 in Atlanta

New location for SECO18:

Atlanta Airport Marriott, Atlanta, Ga.

This year the Southeast Community Owners symposium (SECO) moves to a more central and convenient Atlanta location, the Atlanta Airport Marriott on Best Road, with newly renovated guest rooms and a spacious top-of-the-line conference center.

Each year at SECO is a set of new topics and speakers, but the goal remains the same.

“This is a program put on by community owners for community owners,” SECO Co-founder Spencer Roane said. “This is not an outside party trying to talk to you about your business and hoping to make some money.

“We want to create and promote nice looking, healthy communities filled with quality homes and people who are happy to be where they are,” he said. “We don’t think that’s too much to ask, and we find we’re not alone.”

Who should attend?

Anyone who owns or has an interest in the vitality of manufactured home communities will find great value in attending SECO18. The program focuses on tactics that can benefit professionals who own anywhere from one to 100 communities. This includes the owners and investors, but SECO18 also is beneficial for general managers, managers and other operators.

The networking opportunity with owners/operators will be beneficial for lenders, suppliers, home manufacturers and corporate property managers as well. But there is no mistake – this is a gathering directed by community owners for community owners.
