ORLANDO, FL (January 22, 2015) — MetaMarketplace, a fast-growing platform provider to the timeshare and destination club industry, has confirmed as a Bronze Sponsor of Perspective Group’s Fifth Annual Global Networking Expo, also known as the GNEX Conference.
MetaMarketplace enables timeshares and destination clubs to offer their members more than 4000 professionally-managed villas, luxury rentals, city apartments, mountain lodges—even private islands–in more than 400 destinations without investing in additional real estate. Properties appear on the vacation provider’s site under their brand with the provider’s pricing and currency or points. Members remain on the provider’s site for the entire process, and the provider’s member agents handle all of the communications with their members.
The annual GNEX Conference is one of the timeshare industry’s leading events, attracting senior-level decision makers from more than 100 companies around the globe. GNEX 2015 – The Global Meeting of Minds will be held at the luxurious Manchester Grand Hyatt, San Diego, California from 15-18 February.
“We designed our platform and processes around the specific needs of timeshares and destination clubs,” said Jake McGuire, Vice President of MetaMarketplace. “The feedback we’ve gotten from our early customers in terms of revenue growth and transaction size and volume is that we’re on the right track. We’re looking forward to rolling out the latest version of our platform at GNEX2015 and meeting with innovators and leaders throughout the industry.”
As part of their Bronze Sponsorship, MetaMarketplace will host the Speed Networking session at GNEX. This high-visibility event takes place early in the conference. It gives each delegate the opportunity to meet 30-plus other attendees in quick succession and make arrangements for more in-depth, follow-up discussions later at GNEX.
“As GNEX grows year on year, it continues to attract new companies, and serves as a springboard for new entrants into the vacation ownership industry. MetaMarketplace is a great example of innovation through technology and have a lot to offer our audience. We are delighted to welcome them as a first-time sponsor” Says Paul Mattimoe, President & CEO, Perspective Group.
With its focus on networking, GNEX provides unrivaled access to prospective new clients and strategic partnerships in an intimate setting that redefines the typical conference format.
