Wesley Kogelman makes his third appearance to Perspective Magazine’s annual GNEX gala.
And what better place to share his ideas about the future of the secondary timeshare market? This year’s Global Networking Expo (GNEX) gathered the timeshare industry’s top minds.
BuyATimeshare.com President, Kogelman has been able to discuss the state of the industry and the latest developments in timesharing. Icons like David Seigel, President of Westgate Resorts and Howard Nusbaum, President of ARDA shared some invaluable information about the vacation ownership business.
Refreshments and revelry were sponsored by recognized companies like Interval International, Dial An Exchange and Oombaga, an application that helps owners pay maintenance fees and make reservations with their timeshare. But the event was more than just a Super Bowl party and luncheons on Rodeo Drive. The Speed Networking session provided an opportunity for attendees to meet with dozens of other company executives.
Nusbaum and the Secondary Timeshare Market
Nusbaum presented global research on current consumer trends in timesharing. Along with some of the challenges facing the vacation ownership business, Nusbaum shared his perspective on future opportunities. This included the secondary timeshare market as a way to help consumer vacation better. “I’m fully committed to working with the secondary market to find the best strategies to help our owners, it’s our responsibility” explains Nusbaum. As a positive solution for timeshare buyers, 20% of new owners purchased their properties on the secondary timeshare market.
Every year Perspective Magazine puts on the GNEX timeshare convention to gather the industry’s top minds. With the purpose of improving the vacation ownership business, GNEX works for resort developers and consumers. And with experts like Howard Nusbaum pushing for the resale market, the future of timesharing looks a lot less expensive for vacationers.
