Interval International To Host 17th Annual Shared Ownership Investment Conference

Interval International will host the 17th annual Shared Ownership Investment Conference at the Fontainebleau Miami Beach from September 30 – October 2.

The conference is a premier gathering for timeshare industry professionals interested in gaining insights on trends in resort financing, sales, marketing, and operations, and is recognized as a key resource for potential entrants seeking to understand the basics of this dynamic business.

The conference agenda includes sessions on high-tech sales, new shared ownership projects, and media strategies presented by recognized authorities. Highlights include:

  • Guest speaker Lynne Lancaster, co-author of “When Generations Collide,” will provide tips on how to communicate across the generational divide.
  • Peter C. Yesawich, Ph.D., vice chairman of MMGY Global, will present findings from the 2015 Portrait of American Travelers, a highly acclaimed survey that is one of the most closely watched barometers of emerging travel trends.
  • A new Latin America program, which will be conducted in Spanish with simultaneous English translation, will feature first-hand insights from some of the region’s leading developers, marketers, and communicators. Marketing expert Alvaro Rattinger will share social media and other strategies that speak to this important market.
  • A shared-ownership “Boot Camp” created especially for new entrants will cover the basics of the business, the different profit centers within a timeshare business model, and how mixed use can complement a hotel operation and increase return on investment.
  • The “Meet the Leaders” panel will feature top company executives in the leisure hospitality industry, providing unique perspectives about the opportunities in shared ownership.
  • An ever-evolving threat, cyber security, will be a new topic at this year’s forum. Led by a group of expert panelists, including an FBI special agent, speakers will present the “how-to’s” of staying up-to-date and effectively protecting your organization.

Registrants will attend educational and networking sessions and receive complimentary research studies with a combined retail value of more than $1,000.
