Interval International, a prominent worldwide provider of vacation services, will host the International Shared Ownership Investment Conference at the Eden Roc Miami Beach Resort & Spa from October 24 – 26.
In its 18th year, the highly anticipated event is recognized as a leading resource for new entrants to learn more about the dynamic shared ownership business. Senior executives will discuss the most asked-about issues, such as what motivates timeshare buyers, what lenders are looking for, and how to optimize the profits of an asset. These are just some of the areas that will be addressed by thought leaders as they share their expertise on resort financing, sales, marketing, and operations, among other topics.
“Interval and its supporting sponsors are proud to provide such a comprehensive program for attendees evaluating a potential investment in the industry and an equally valuable forum for current participants,” said David C. Gilbert, president of Interval International.
The agenda includes panels on the Caribbean and Latin America, as well as sessions on timeshare trends, sales presentations, economic impact on destinations, hotel conversions, resort amenities, and marketing and media strategies. Highlights include:
- Guest presenter Scott Stratten, an expert in viral, social, and authentic marketing, who has been named one of the top five social media influencers in the world by Forbes. The sought-after speaker, known for his unique “Un-Marketing” philosophy, has been featured in The Wall Street Journal, Huffington Post, Entrepreneur Magazine, and on CNN.com.
- Adriana Grineberg, regional director for Facebook in Latin America and one of the company’s first employees in the region, will share how she has assisted global corporations such as Procter & Gamble, Unilever, Coca-Cola, and Netflix leverage media and technology to reach their key consumers.
- Two Latin America-focused sessions will cover the realities of doing business and the impact of timeshare in the region with first-hand knowledge from local marketers and developers.
