Europe Q1/Q2 2019

The latest issue of RCI Ventures magazine for the EMEA region turns the spotlight on the exciting and diverse South African market, as well as highlighting industry trends, spends and opportunity in the European region. Southern Sun Resorts announced its re-affiliation to RCI in February 2019 following a ten-year hiatus, and the alignment of the two industry giants is set to lay the foundations for a prosperous future for shared-holiday ownership in the region. While shared-holiday ownership and South Africa have gone hand-in-hand since the 1970s, there has been a shift in the market in recent years, and key figures from Southern Sun Resorts, RCI and VOASA share their thoughts on where the opportunity lies for South Africa in our lead feature. Bringing new light to successful, strengthened products is certainly prevalent in the Q1/Q2 2019 issue as key industry players employ new strategies, sales techniques and marketing insight to leverage their position in the market – we hear from leading players including Domina and the Anfi Group, plus three industry experts share their best practice as the wider travel and leisure market continues to evolve. There are also articles on creating brand loyalty, boosting customer satisfaction, and solutions to the growing socio-economic and environmental impact of tourism congestion.
