Elkhart, Ind.-based supplier Dicor Corp. announced its sponsorship of the first “RV Industry Power Breakfast” May 9 at the RV/MH Hall of Fame Northern Indiana Event Center. According to a press release, scheduled presenters include U.S. Sen. Joe Donnelly (D-Ind.) and Kampgrounds of America Inc. (KOA) President and CEO Jim Rogers.
Developed and facilitated by RVBusiness magazine, this is the first such event to bring together the leadership of major RV-related companies, the Recreation Vehicle Industry Association (RVIA), executive staff, economic experts and government leadership for a special conference in Elkhart. It will provide an opportunity to address the future of the industry through a series of thought-provoking, informative speakers representing different industry perspectives. Other sponsors include the Economic Development Corp. of Elkhart County, Forest River Inc., GE Capital, KOA, Spartan Motors Inc. and Thor Industries Inc.
“We appreciate the opportunity to support this event,” said Gregg Fore, president of Dicor and immediate past chairman of RVIA, who will offer opening remarks at the event. “The decision by RVBusiness to hold it in Elkhart makes sense. I think you get a better picture of the challenges and solutions you’re facing when you’re speaking to the community, to the people that put the plans into action. Hopefully the analysis and ideas this forum provides will inspire us in our efforts both as individual companies and collectively as an industry, to continue to work together and stay ahead of the continuing recovery.”
The breakfast runs from 7-10:30 a.m. on May 9. Tickets are $25 per person through April 25 and $30 after that date. Tables are also available and may be reserved by April 25. Online registration will be available on the RVBUSINESS.com website soon.
