Karma Group scoops four top industry awards
Luxury resort developer Karma Group and its chairman and founder John Spence have won four prestigious awards at this year’s Perspective Magazine Awards.
The awards, which were announced at the 2018 GNEX Conference in Florida last month, are a global recognition programme for the timeshare/vacation ownership industry. Each year, vacation industry companies and individuals vie to win one or more of more than 30 accolades up that span a wide variety of market segments.
Winners are announced in front an audience of senior-level peers at the renowned GNEX Conference, which this year was held aboard a $40 million mega-yacht – the world’s first mega-yacht event venue, and one of America’s largest privately-owned yachts, in Miami, Florida.
Spence said: “Being recognised at the Perspective Magazine Awards is an honour and great recognition for a lot of very hard work.
“By loving what we do and pouring our hearts and souls into creating the best possible results for our many loyal clients, we will continue to strive for excellence and push the boundaries even further. See you next year!”
