Ragatz 2012 Conference Expands from Fractionals to Resort Real Estate

Ragatz Fractional & Resort Real Estate Conference

The Annual Fractional Interest Conference, sponsored each year by Ragatz Associates, is widening  its outreach this year.

The 2012 conference, scheduled for March 12-13 at the Hyatt Regency Scottsdale Resort and Spa at Gainey Ranch, will again focus on fractionals, private residence clubs, and destination clubs, but will now also look at issues of resort condominiums, single-family detached vacation homes, master-planned destination resort communities and vacation rentals. Reflecting this broader scope, this, the 12th annual event, is being renamed: the Ragatz Fractional & Resort Real Estate Conference.

Richard Ragatz, Ph.D., President of Ragatz Associates, says, “During our global consulting work, we find that developers are active in more than a single resort real estate product. Today, more than ever, it is critical to understand how many components can blend together to create developments that are most appealing to today’s multi-motivated consumers.”

Look for the 2012 Ragatz Conference to include sessions on:

  • consumer trends
  • changes in decision-making patterns
  • which resort real estate products make most sense to various buyers
  • marketing and selling to today’s consumers
  • consumer use patterns and purchase motivations
  • and many other topics of vital interest to the changing vacation and resort real estate marketplace

More than 50 speakers are scheduled, including some 25 new experts at the conference presentations. You can learn more at: www.ragatzconference.com
