ARDA Timeshare Conference To Feature BuyaTimeshare.com CEO Wesley Kogelman
BuyaTimeshare.com president and CEO Wesley Kogelman will address upwards of 100 timeshare executives as part of an industry panel as leaders from across New England gather for next week’s regional conference of the American Resort Development Association (ARDA).
Set for June 2-3, 2014 at the Renaissance Providence Downtown Hotel in Providence, RI, the annual meeting is an opportunity for the industry to discuss trends and business information on a regional level and how best to focus strategic programs to develop the timeshare product in New England.
The panel, entitled “Timeshare of the Future: What Does the New Product Look Like”, is scheduled for the morning of June 3 and designed to build on the research presented earlier in the State of the Shared Vacation Ownership Industry session. This panel will talk more specifically about the new timeshare product and how to update and renew existing resorts to better meet the new customer’s wants and needs.
Wesley Kogelman will moderate the panel in addition to presenting during the session, with the panel also including Michael Edwards, General Manager, The Cove at Yarmouth and Jim Mirabella, president, GScf Furnishings.
“I’m very pleased to have the opportunity to address colleagues about this topic,” said Kogelman. “The evolution of the timeshare product has a direct impact on the way it is sold and online marketing outlets need to be given a seat at the table, especially when looking at how today’s consumers predominantly buy travel products.”
The conference agenda is packed with topics relevant to all sectors of the industry, with a Resort Management Forum designed to address managing change that all resorts face, the announcement of key findings from the most recent State of the Shared Vacation Ownership Industry: Owners Study and updates on legislative activity impacting the industry across the region.
