Timeshare conference slated in Orlando

All things timeshare, fractional ownership and investment will be discussed at an upcoming conference.

The Peabody Orlando in Florida hosts the Shared Ownership Investment Conference from 18 to 20 September and is geared toward builders, condo developers, hoteliers, investors, lenders, bankers, consultants and tourism executives.

The conference explores various shared ownership opportunities, including traditional timesharing, resort conversions, fractional development and private residence clubs. Delegates will also discover why shared ownership improves occupancy and generates revenue, while maximising earning potential, learn how products are financed in todays economic investment, hear about vacation trends in a recovering economy and have an opportunity to network.

Updates on the industry

The conference schedule includes sessions giving updates on the state of the industry, shared ownership fundamentals, understanding fractionals, shared ownership management, the power of point-based clubs, sales and marketing, access to capital and adapting business to new paradigms.

There are a number of breakout sessions mooted including targeted marketing, opportunities in South America, legal issues, repositioning of assets, conversions and an update into how Mexico and the Caribbean have responded to recent challenges plus which opportunities may be on the horizon.

Michael Gelb is author, speaker and leader in the human potential movement, and at a special luncheon will be sharing advice on turning promising ideas into profitable projects. Chairman of MMGY Global Peter C. Yesawich is also speaking at a winners circle presentation. His insights into the habits and preferences of the American traveller prove to be invaluable to participants in the shared ownership and hospitality industries, said conference organisers in a press release. During the luncheon, Interval International will call Winners Circle finalists to the stage to receive their prizes; one will open a suitcase containing a check for $5,000.

  1. There are many companies offering to help people who have been victims of timeshare fraud and collect money in advance for doing so. There are companies that even offer cancellation insurance. You must be careful because this could be someone wanting to scam you again.

    There are good articles on how to use timeshares properly.
