Interval International continues to strengthen its commitment to the growth of shared ownership in Brazil through valuable regional research and renowned investment conferences.
Marcos Agostini, Interval’s senior vice president of resort sales and business development for Latin America, said, “A decade of economic growth in Brazil has created a new generation of travelers, who include millions of middle class consumers. They have the means and the desire to travel and want to vacation in new ways. That’s what shared ownership products can offer these consumers.”
To support resort developers and prospective new entrants to the business, Interval commissioned the Shared Ownership 2012: A Market Perspective – Brazil Edition, a study that provides in-depth information about the demographic characteristics, vacation habits, and intentions of leisure travelers who reside in the market. The survey, which validates the growth potential for shared ownership in the country, was produced exclusively for Interval by Ipsos Reid, one of the world’s leading survey-based market research firms.
Interval created the Shared Ownership Investment Conferences in 1998 to educate developers, hoteliers, lenders, and government officials about resort development opportunities, and has sponsored many successful events around the world. The company is hosting a seminar on August 29 at the Grand Hyatt São Paulo, where more than 100 delegates are expected. “This event is designed to explore market trends and key issues affecting the sector in Brazil. It will facilitate business networking, deal-making, and stimulate interest in shared ownership,” Agostini added.
