TATOC unveils speakers for 2017 conference
Leading industry body TATOC, the Timeshare Assocation, has released the list of international speakers at this year’s shared-holiday ownership industry conference.
The speakers’ agenda is set to initiate lively debate among delegates around a range of key topics, all of which are influential in the operation of shared-holiday ownership resorts.
RCI is once again a Platinum Sponsor of the annual event, recognising its importance in providing a forum for open and candid discussion for both the developer managers and owners of residential leisure real estate properties and memberships.
The conference, which takes place on 3-5 March 2017 at the Park Royal Hotel, Warrington, is the only event of its kind to bring resort developers and the owners of a variety of shared-holiday ownership properties together in one room for the sharing of views and ideas in a review of this popular holiday product.
Dimitris Manikis, RCI’s VP of Business Development for Europe, Middle East, Africa, will host a break out Q&A session during the conference to share an update on RCI’s products and services with both RCI members and non-members, to demonstrate how they can get more out of their ownerships.
