RCI Timeshare Partners with Bench Events for Shared Ownership Master Class 2011

RCI timeshare and The Registry Collection® program are partnering with Bench Events, organizers of the Arabian Hotel Investment Conference (AHIC), to co-host the second edition of the Shared Ownership Master Class 2011.

As part of the three-day AHIC conference program, scheduled for April 30- May 2 at the Madinat Jumeirah, Dubai, UAE, the Shared Ownership Master Class 2011 will discuss and showcase business models of shared ownership. The Master Class will look at fractionals, timeshares and both private residence clubs and destination clubs, models that are considered to be strong and growing in the Middle East and North Africa, especially Egypt and Dubai.

Shafi Syed, regional director, The Registry Collection® programme, MENA, says, “This is the event for hospitality companies and mixed-use developers to get a really close look at how leading hospitality brands have benefited from their entry into the shared-ownership market sector. The Master Class format offers a fantastic opportunity to meet and talk to an impressive and knowledgeable line-up of experienced leaders from branded vacation-ownership companies.”

As Dimitris Manikis, vice president, business development for RCI, EMEA, explains, “We wanted to create a forum where delegates could talk to leading brands like Anantara Vacation Club, Fairmont Raffles Hotels International, Jones Lang La Salle Hotels, Macdonald Hotels & Resorts, Majid Al Futtaim Properties, Valhalla Associates and more – under one roof in a focused interactive session. If capturing long-term customer loyalty and creating new revenue streams in a changed marketplace is a key objective for real estate developers and hospitality firms, then this is a ‘must-attend’ event for them.”Follow this link to see the full event agenda, speakers and for registration information: www.arabianconference.com.
