The 2019 RV Industry Power Breakfast, now sold out, is expected to draw a record crowd of almost 1000 business and civic leaders for the seventh annual event slated for May 9.
Breakfast gets underway at 6:45 a.m. while the program kicks off at 7:15 a.m. at the Northern Indiana Event Center, part of the RV/MH Hall of Fame located on the northeast side of Elkhart, Ind.
Keynoting this year’s breakfast will be first-term Indiana Gov. Eric Holcomb along with nationally syndicated economist Peter Morici, whose appearance is sponsored by Wells Fargo CDF.
RV Industry Association (RVIA) President Frank Hugelmeyer and Kampgrounds of America Inc. (KOA) CEO Toby O’Rourke will also brief the audience at the Power Breakfast, which is facilitated by RVBusiness magazine and co-sponsored by RVIA, Airxcel, Wells Fargo CDF, Thor Industries Inc., KOA, Dometic, Winnebago Industries Inc., Forest River Inc., Spartan Motors Inc. and Cummins Inc.
“All in all, it’s a very relevant and powerful lineup of presenters, which I’m sure is what prompted the sellout,” commented BJ Thompson, an Elkhart-based public relations consultant and administrator of the annual breakfast. “We reconfigured the room setting to allow additional seating and it still sold out.”
Those unable to attend the event in person can tune into a live webcast, a link to which will be accessible at RVBUSINESS.com, while a recorded encore of the event will be available by May 13 on RVB’s YouTube channel.
