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.

Mitt Romney Returns to Marriott Board of Directors December 12, 2012Posted by Bryan Connelly in : Customer Comments, General, Information, Marriott Timeshares, New Features, News & Events, Timeshare Rental, Timeshare Resale, Timeshare Resource, Travel, Uncategorized , add a comment
Good news for Marriott International Inc. as the former presidential nominee Mitt Romney has returned to the company’s board of directors. Willard Mitt Romney, named after the company’s founder John Willard Marriott, has served on the board from 1993 to 2002 before leaving to serve as Governor of Massachusetts.
Romney is rejoining Marriott for a second time after an unsuccessful presidential campaign in 2008. He served on the board from January 2009 to January 2011, when he stepped down to launch his most recent presidential campaign.
Mitt Romney Rejoins Marriott International
“We will benefit from his tremendous energy and capability to guide long-term success in an increasingly complex business environment” says Marriott’s executive chairman J.W. Marriott Jr. “We look forward to working closely with him again as a member of our strong, talented and diverse board.”
The Romney and Marriott families have been close for generations. The hotel chain’s executives have made significant contributions to Mitt Romney’s presidential campaigns. His return is good news for Marriott as Romney has a long track record of reviving companies with extreme deficits.
Success at Bain & Company
Bain & Company, a global management consulting firm, was experiencing financial distress until Romney returned as the company’s CEO during 1991.
Romney was able to manage negotiations and to refocus stock-ownership plans, real-estate holdings and bank loans. His leadership has helped Bain & Co. turn around companies such as, Burger King, Domino’s, Home Depot, Sealy, and Warner Music Group.
CEO of 2002 Olympic Games
In 2002 Romney became president and CEO of the Olympic Games, based in Salt Lake City. As the Olympics were struggling with security issues and a $379 million deficit, it was Romney who helped eliminate that debt. He brought in new sponsors, increased revenue up to $1.32 billion, and organized over 23,000 volunteers. During the Olympic Games, Romney was instrumental in launching an impressive security effort in the wake of the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks.
Governor of Massachusetts
When Romney was elected governor of Massachusetts, the state was facing a $3 billion deficit and increasing unemployment. Romney’s supporters say that he was able to balance the state’s budget without borrowing money or raising taxes. By the time Romney stepped down in 2007, Massachusetts had a surplus with a $2 billion “rainy day fund” and a reduction in unemployment and sustained economic growth.
Mitt Romney’s Return to Marriott
As his third stint with Marriott’s Board of Directors, Romney said in a statement that “it is an honor to once again be able to serve in the company of leaders like Bill Marriott and Arne Sorenson and to support the work of the tens of thousands of Marriott associates who make Marriott International the renowned success that it is.”

Timeshare Scam | TRN Under Investigation November 6, 2012Posted by JamesJewhurst in : General, Information, News & Events, Timeshare Resale, Timeshare Resource, Timeshare Scams, Uncategorized , 2comments
Another Timeshare Scam Company is Under Investigation
Following the timeshare scam world can get tiring. It seems like not one day goes by without hearing about another timeshare scam company and taking lots of people for lots of cash. The latest timeshare scam has me cringing. They have a catchy name. Timeshare Refund Network.
That is the latest name in cold calling timeshare scams. They call you, and since they already have most of your member information, they tell you that your case is a valid claim. They then will attempt to gain more of your contact info, and set a date for their ‘legal advisor’ to call you back. As most of you know, but apparently not enough, that cold callers are never a good sign. Always be cautious of a timeshare scam. If you fill out a form or web form for more info, take a note of who you are contacting. If it isn’t them calling you back, then you have to wonder why they are calling.
So who is Timeshare Refund Network. Well their website was created in the beginning of August of 2012, yet their website claims they have been building their firm and helping folks get their time share money back for over four years. Now this company is based out of Spain in the Canary Islands and is currently being investigated for timeshare scam by a Spanish Consumer Agency. Since they are cold calling and have most of the details about you already, this raises some flags, being that there is no legal way of obtaining all of that information thanks to the Data Protection Act.
Cold calling folks and starting claims against their resort will usually just end up with you paying to file the claim, and maybe paying for other services. This can get costly fast. So always be on the lookout for a timeshare scam or fraud. If you or anyone you know is ever cold called about your timeshare, please let us know at Buy A Timeshare.com. Or do the research online, check who owns the website. Get the names and license numbers of everyone you talk to. Verify their info, make sure they are not lying to you. Check their rankings online, protect yourself.
