Harrisonburg, VA (March 27, 2015) — C.A.R.E. president, Alain Carr, represented the Cooperative Association of Resort Exchangers at GNEX’s most recent world conference held this past February 15th through 18 at the Manchester Grand Hotel in San Diego . In true GNEX conference form, it was a spectacular event attracting many of our industry’s greatest leaders from around the world; from legendary leaders like Westgate’s David Siegel to the very newest innovative minds in the business.
The conference included an array of networking opportunities. There were many existing C.A.R.E. members in attendance and ample opportunities to find new C.A.R.E. member- worthy companies. The conference included a fast- paced, high- contact speed networking session, hosted by Jim Madrid and was peppered with powerhouse panels and inspirational speakers.
Topics of the conference included an array of highly educational issues designed to help attendees navigate the challenges faced by the resort industry. Advice for legacy resorts and those seeking to reform existing programs was given. Gregory Crist, NTOA, shared some insight into the needs of today’s vacation owners.
“Once again Paul Mattimoe has done it!” remarked Carr,” He has successfully created an arena where you can meet some of the most successful people in the business in an exceptionally welcoming and inviting fashion. Where else do you have fun meeting great people while you’re enjoying the evening on a real decommissioned U.S. aircraft carrier! Hats off! You can be sure C.A.R.E. will be there for GNEX 2016 to be held February of 2016 in New Orleans.”
About C.A.R.E. (Cooperative Association of Resort Exchangers)
C.A.R.E. began in 1985 when a handful of resort employees, who had been working together informally to provide an extra level of service and additional vacation fulfillment opportunities to their owners, met in New Orleans, LA and officially started the organization (Cooperative Association of Resort Exchangers). Today, C.A.R.E.’s membership numbers more than 120 member companies comprised of Resorts, Developers, Management and Exchange Companies, Travel Clubs, HOA’s, Wholesalers and Service Providers. Members not only provide each other with opportunities for vacation fulfillment through exchanges, but offer enhanced revenue opportunities through increased inventory utilization and yield management.
