T his year's event hit record numbers – from an increase in attendance, to Hot Show sales reaching just under $11.5 million – and while we may have left still arguing about whether it's 'Looavul,' 'Looeyville,' or 'Luhvul,' we can all agree that RTO World left us feelin' lucky in Kentucky. The convention kicked off bright and early Tuesday morning in conjunction with a few state association meetings as well as the TRIB Group annual Membership Meeting. Opening day brewed large groups of rent-to-own enthusiasts checking in and picking up their badges before heading to a Peer Group Meetup of choice. Starting the day with engaging peer groups gets people talking, minds percolating and ideas brewing. They serve as a catalyst to shape the RTO World attendee experience in planting the seeds for what each unique individual should absorb over the next three days. The peer group meetups included industry newcomers, store managers, marketing professionals, IT professionals, district managers, and owners/dealers.
