Wednesday, March 9, 2022
Vacation Innovations (“VI” or the “Company”), a leading provider of travel-related products, software and services, today announced it was awarded the 2022 Perspective Magazine Awards for Best Overall Company among organizations with fewer than 250 employees, as well as Best Membership Program, Best Team, and Best Marketing Professional at the 2022 Global Networking Expo.
The Company is continuing the strong tradition of excellence in the Perspective Magazine Awards set by Holiday Systems International (HSI), which it acquired in 2020, with repeat wins for Best Overall Company (previously won by HSI) and Best Membership Program for Advantage Program, the Company’s flagship travel membership program. In addition, the Company won Best Team for the HSI Operations Team, led by Edwin Lugo and Iris Addison, which continues to have a significant impact on the performance of the brand and the success of the organization. Nick Baker, VI’s Creative Director, was named Best Marketing Professional for his relentless approach to design and proven thought leadership within the Company.
“Our teams work incredibly hard throughout the year to deliver incredible products and services to our customers and resort partners, and we’re thrilled to see those efforts recognized in such a significant way,” said Bryan Rand, president of Vacation Innovations. “We applaud the Perspective Group for bringing the industry together with such a meaningful conference and look forward to building on this momentum as we work to produce yet another record-breaking year, continuing our focus on further enhancing our industry-leading rental and resale platform, and driving even more tours for our resort and developer partners.”
The Company has continued HSI’s involvement with the GNEX conference, which began in 2011, and sees the annual event as an important forum for building relationships and exploring opportunities within the vacation ownership industry.
“We’re incredibly proud of our teams and their dedication to our customers, and we are thrilled that organizations like the Perspective Group are taking notice,” said Chad Newbold, CEO of Vacation Innovations. “Our commitment to delivering quality products and services has never been stronger and we look forward to continuing to serve as a strong partner to the vacation ownership and larger travel industries. These awards are a testament to the dedication of our teams and the level of excellence we aspire to, and we look forward to further engaging with the industry as we strengthen our position as a leading, holistic travel organization.”
Vacation Innovations continues to actively invest in its brands, programs, and technology, launching updates across its portfolio of brands throughout the remainder of 2022 and beyond. The Company is also increasing its involvement within the industry and will be actively represented at upcoming conferences led by the American Resort Development Association, the Cooperative Association of Resort Exchangers, and more.
