With annual traffic of over one million unique visitors to his website, Kogelman has an excellent view of the trends affecting the resale marketplace and steps the industry can take to help improve the resale space.
The ARDA World Convention will be held at the Orlando World Center Marriott in Orlando, Florida with more than 3,000 attendees from over 35 countries expected to attend from April 12-16, 2015. Kogelman’s panels will be held April 14 as follows:
- 9:00am – Resale Efforts and Solutions Across the Industry: Discussion about how the resale industry is developing and implementing new prototype programs, while employing best practices that all industry segments can support to keep delinquencies down.
- 1:15pm – Selling Association-owned Inventory: Information about how timeshare associations are using the world-wide web to find buyers and using third-party companies to conduct sales and points conversions.
“The ARDA Convention is the largest and most influential annual meeting of professionals from our industry and I am eager to participate and share my views about what we are seeing take place in resales,” said Kogelman.
“The online marketplace for timeshares is growing and can bring opportunity for resorts and associations looking for additional revenue streams. We see the demand every day in the form of offers placed onto the timeshares advertised on our website, so we know that potential buyers and renters are looking online for the product,” Kogelman added.
