The SOIC Conference is an outstanding vacation ownership industry resource for staying informed about industry trends as well as to network and perhaps find new business opportunities. Say hello to the famed “father of timeshare,” Keith W. Trowbridge, http://www.execq.com/keith.htm who pioneered timesharing in North America in 1974 with the development of the first successful purpose-built timeshare resort in the United States, the Sanibel Beach Club on Sanibel Island, FL, a 31-unit timeshare project built and completely sold out in 18 months. He went on from there to develop 17 resorts and market an additional 18 in Canada, USA, and the Caribbean. Trowbridge retired after more than 20 years in the timeshare development side, traveled, wrote a book on the industry, taught courses in timeshare at Florida Gulf Coast University, and gradually slipped into the headhunting business after he found himself being frequently asked to provide connections for timeshare companies looking for executives. Fifteen years later Executive Quest, Inc. has executive searches and placements worldwide, recruiting “the best of the best.”
