Orlando, Florida – September 24, 2014 – (INTUITION by Perspective Group) – The Canadian Resort Development Association (CRDA), a trade association dedicated to furthering the interests of the resort industry in Canada and throughout the world, has announced its winner of the 2nd annual Cornerstone Award.
The award was presented to DAE, a worldwide vacation exchange provider at the Canadian Resort Conference in Toronto by Jon Zwickel, President & CEO of CRDA.
This coveted award recognizes innovators in the vacation ownership industry and entry was open to any company, Home Owners Association, individual or vacation ownership project. A worthy recipient of the Cornerstone Award would be anyone or any company that has seized an opportunity, addressed a need, solved a problem or created a game changing value proposition that has left a lasting positive impact on the industry, the environment and society, while being an inspiration to other CRDA members – and DAE encompasses that.
DAE has developed an exchange service that is innovative in itself, a no membership fee, transaction- based exchange platform with no complicated trading value charts or schedules, that is designed specifically for engaging existing timeshare owners directly through channels outside of the developer community. DAE’s focus has been on building direct relationships with members themselves as well as the channel that represents them AFTER the point of sale. Among DAEs extensive portfolio of products and services, they have developed a set of HOA and Legacy Resort Services focused on helping resorts, HOA’s and management companies breathe new life into the vacation ownership value proposition. Until now, only pieces of services and solutions existed to serve the growing issues facing HOAs and legacy resorts. DAE, has combined a set of tools and services designed expressly for those most in need – HOAs and legacy resorts. The toolkit is being leveraged by hundreds of sold out resorts worldwide.
“DAE is truly worthy of our Cornerstone Award. They are a company that dynamically impacts the vacation ownership industry during an era of rapid change, and delivers solutions that are integral to the evolution of our industry,” says Jon Zwickel, President & CEO, CRDA.
Judging of this award was based on both panel and online voting. Four judges, who represent the Awards Committee, will independently select their top scoring nominee based on the narrative and collateral provided as well as their industry knowledge. Each judge’s scores represent 20% of the overall score for a nominee, with the remaining 20% coming from the online voting process, open to all industry professionals.
CRDA is an industry-based association that is dedicated to furthering the vacation ownership resort and leisure industries. It was founded over 30 years ago in response to the public’s demand for reliable information about timeshare products. Focus has since broadened to all aspects of shared ownership and the resort industry. For more information on membership and events visit www.crda.com
