The Canadian Vacation Ownership Association (CVOA) has announced plans for VO-Con 2018, the association’s annual vacation ownership conference which will be held September 25-27 at the Westin Trillium House Resort in Blue Mountain, Ontario, Canada.
“Vo-Con is unique in that it provides an open forum to gain new perspectives and engage in candid discussions,” said Jon Zwickel. “Our sponsorship program is extremely affordable, and we already have supporters who have committed to sponsoring some of our upcoming events.”
The theme for the first day is “Big Challenges Demand Bigger Solutions”. Panel discussions will include relevant topics like “Secondary Market Paradigms, “Advocacy and Government Relations” and “Managing Public Perception”.
The second day is called ‘Exceeding Experiential Expectations.’ There will be a panel focused on “How Resorts Deliver Exceptional Experiences”. The day will feature a lively keynote speech by experience economy specialist Dennis Moseley-Williams entitled “Creating Transformative Experiences.” VO-Con will end with a highly experiential farm-to-table lunch with Ontario wines and craft beers.
In addition to the presentation of the coveted Cornerstone, VO-Con is also introducing the Customer Service Awards.
The VO-Con mission “To Explore the Business of Vacations” is structured to provide opportunities for networking, collaboration and open sharing of information.
VO-Con attendees are decision makers; 65% of them come from the C-Level, including Directors and Partners. 35% are VPs and Managers. Based on surveys taken at the close of last year’s VO-Con, 100% of respondents considered event sponsorships an excellent value. And 76% of last year’s attendees reported that they closed business deals valued at more than $6 million.
According to Bonnie Kosco, CVOA Member Services Manager, all sponsorship are at the same level and include ongoing exclusive access to the delegate list, discounted registration for two attendees, complimentary exhibit table and high visibility with logo displays in promotional and conference materials as well as frequent recognition from the podium.
