The finale of the annual GNEX Timeshare Leaders Conference and the announcement of the winners of the 7th annual Perspective Magazine Awards took place on January 30th and February 1st respectively. The Perspective Magazine awards leaders in the travel industry in 28 individual categories, honoring achievements for company wide policies, marketing innovations, and outstanding leadership in these companies.
With only days to go until GNEX 2013 timeshare conference, the anticipation grows for new ideas that will be unveiled and the bold discussions that will ensue. As we announced in our media release today, “VacationOwnership.com Founder on the Hot Seat During GNEX 2013,” this event is marked by aggressive, solution-seeking conversations all directed to making the timeshare and vacation ownership industry stronger and more relevant in today’s marketplace. And of course, I’ll be one of the attendees on the hot seat, because the challenges and inevitable changes needed in timeshare resales are a topic no one in the industry should ignore.
