CVOA unveils plans for VO-Con 2018 conference
The Canadian Vacation Ownership Association (CVOA) has announced plans for VO-Con 2018, the association’s annual vacation ownership conference.
The event will be held 25-27 September at the Westin Trillium House Resort in Blue Mountain, Ontario, Canada, and is the only one of its kind in Canada, for which the CVOA is the only association dedicated to representing the interests of the vacation ownership and resort development industries.
Jon Zwickel, CVOA’s president and CEO, said: “Vo-Con is unique in that it provides an open forum to gain new perspectives and engage in candid discussions. Our sponsorship programme is extremely affordable, and we already have supporters who have committed to sponsoring some of our upcoming events.”
The theme for the first day is ‘Big Challenges Demand Bigger Solutions’. Panel discussions will include relevant topics like ‘Secondary Market Paradigms’, ‘Advocacy and Government Relations’ and ‘Managing Public Perception’.
The second day is called ‘Exceeding Experiential Expectations’, and will feature a panel focused on ‘How Resorts Deliver Exceptional Experiences’. The day will also include a keynote speech by experienced economy specialist Dennis Moseley-Williams entitled ‘Creating Transformative Experiences’. VO-Con will end with a highly experiential farm-to-table lunch with Ontario wines and craft beers.
In addition to the presentation of the coveted Cornerstone, VO-Con is also introducing the Customer Service Awards.
The VO-Con mission ‘To Explore the Business of Vacations’ is structured to provide opportunities for networking, collaboration and open sharing of information.
