Jul 10, 2017

The Missouri Rental Dealers and vendors came together at Lake Ozark, MO to celebrate 30 years as an association and kick off their 13th Annual Heartland of America Regional Trade Show on Tuesday, June 27th. Rental professionals from Arkansas, Illinois, Iowa, Kansas, Kentucky, Oklahoma, Tennessee and Missouri met at The Lodge of Four Seasons for the three-day event.

The 13th Annual Heartland of America Regional Trade Show welcomed attendees Tuesday evening at registration followed by a cocktail reception at the exhibit hall. This year attendees received MRDA 30 Year Anniversary branded travel coffee mugs and flashlight keyrings. Rental dealers met with vendors throughout the exhibit hall while catching up with old and new friends alike. Attendees enjoyed light bites and cocktails before heading out to the much anticipated President's Party hosted by MRDA President, John Cleek, Jr.

After a quick break, attendees reconvened at the President's Suite. Tiger Cleek welcomed APRO's new Executive Director Jill McClure to the rent to own industry or "rent to own family" as he called it. Both RTO Dealers and Vendors had the opportunity to either network or strategize in preparation for day two of the Heartland of America's events - the Golf Tournament and the Bass Fishing Tournament.
