Podcast 172 features Show Managers LLC

This week’s guest is Anthony Tedesco, who works for Show Managers LLC, a company located in Richmond, Va. He and his partner have almost 40 years of combined experience planning, organizing and promoting shows of all types, including RV shows.

The men recently ventured out on their own after working for a major company serving the RV industry for many years, and their firm already snagged a big account orchestrating the Mid-Atlantic RV Show which takes place March 16 to 18 near Richmond, Va.

Tedesco describes the elements of a good RV show and explain what RV dealers and consumers can do to get the most of their RV show experience.

Good RV shows don’t just happen. It takes weeks of meticulous planning, an enormous amount of promotion and significant financial investment to pull it all together.

RV shows won’t likely go away for the same reasons Tedesco outlined – people can look at websites and brochures all day long. But, only until they can step inside will they be able to imagine themselves owning and using a particular RV.

Consumers love RV shows because it allows them to check out a wide assortment of brands and RV models in one central location.

Dealers love RV shows because they give them access to thousands of people so interested in the RV lifestyle they are willing to pay money to check out the RVs they could view for free on a dealer’s lot.

Dealers and dealer organizations wanting to put on a good show can contact Anthony Tedesco and his partners by calling 804.467.7038 or emailing info@showmanagers.com.

It’s much better to hire experts to pull off a great show than to try to manage all the details on their own while trying to get normal everyday tasks done.
