Orlando, Florida – October 22, 2013 – (INTUITION by Perspective Group) – Holiday exchange provider, DAE, is teaming up with a group of Australian Independent Timeshare Resorts to host information sessions across the country for timeshare owners to get the most out of their holiday ownership.

Timeshare owners are invited to attend an Ownership Awareness Session in their region – an Australian first, bringing owners together with Resorts to increase their knowledge of, and engagement with, their timeshare product.

“Through these information sessions, we will be able to update timeshare owners on all the exciting developments that have taken place across the industry to improve the benefits of their holiday ownership,” said Gary Fog, Business Development Manager of DAE Australia and New Zealand.

“With a changing market, many new products and services have evolved over time which were never available to owners when they first purchased, and not everyone is aware of some of the great benefits that timeshare owners now have access to through their holiday ownership.

“We want to engage owners and show them and their families how to make the most of what they own and all the wonderful opportunities available to them.”

Throughout the open forums, both DAE and the Independent Resorts will provide a broad overview of the industry as a whole. Owners will have the opportunity to ask questions of Resort Managers and gain a better insight into recent resort developments, along with an overview by DAE on exchanging and products that improve the value of their overall holiday ownership.

Korora Bay Village Resort Managing Director, Stephanie Kewming, said the sessions will unite timeshare owners from independently managed Resorts, and build stronger relationships between members and Resorts.

“As an Independent Resort Manager, I see these sessions as an opportunity to educate owners on how Independent Resorts are run – by members, for members,” said Ms Kewming.

“Because Independent Resorts are managed by fellow timeshare owners, we are able to build more personal relationships with members and their families. My family and I get so much value out of our ownership and the purpose of these sessions is to encourage people to make the most of it and get their families involved,” she said.

“These informal sessions are all about education and enhancing the customer experience – the collaborative effort with Independent Resorts is an Australian first for the timeshare industry, and just one of the ways DAE is contributing to a stronger future for the industry,” said Mr Fog.

Timeshare Ownership Awareness Sessions will be held in November and December throughout selected locations in Australia.

Limited seating is available at each venue so registration is essential. Owners can register by visiting http://ownerevent.net/ and clicking ‘Book Now’; by booking through their own resort; or calling the dedicated toll free event number on 1300 510 148.
