Orlando, Florida – March 26, 2015 – (INTUITION by Perspective Group) – Timeshare industry leaders turned out in full force, Sun., Feb. 15, for the GNEX Dream Car Challenge sponsored by VacationCondos.com.
The high-performance event provided an exciting start to the Fifth Annual GNEX Timeshare Leaders Conference, which took place, Feb. 15 – 18, at the Manchester Grand Hyatt, San Diego, Calif. The record-breaking conference drew 197 senior-level executives from 119 companies around the world.
This year’s GNEX got off to a fast start with the Dream Car Challenge, inviting attendees to unleash their inner racecar driver while taking exotic cars – the Lamborghini Gallardo, Ferrari 360 Modena, Ferrari F430 and 2015 Porsche GT3 – for a spin around purpose-built autocross tracks not far from the hotel. For most participants, it was a once-in-a-lifetime chance to go from 0 – 60 in roughly 3 seconds in cars, each with a retail value on average of more than $250,000.
“We’re delighted to be a part of an exhilarating event that sets GNEX 2015 apart,” says Jon Blackmon, vice president, Operations, VacationCondos.com. “Everyone had a chance to catch up with old friends and make new ones while enjoying the gorgeous San Diego weather in an one-of-a-kind event that made for great networking and great fun.”
