Orlando, FL (August 12, 2015) — weholi, the new online marketplace for timeshare owners to rent and sell their vacation weeks directly to consumers, has confirmed its sponsorship of the Sixth Annual Global Networking Expo known as the GNEX Conference. The event takes place, Feb. 2 – 5, 2016, in the Big Easy at the historic Ritz Carlton New Orleans.
“weholi is establishing a global, online vacation ownership marketplace that will introduce timeshare resorts to a whole new market of vacationers. It’s not a small undertaking. We need to align ourselves with the right partners,” says Fermin Cruz, weholi’s Vice President of Sales and Marketing, Americas. “GNEX draws industry leaders worldwide in a setting that fosters this type of collaboration. This conference presents a unique opportunity to see what’s new and what’s next in the world of timeshare, while also showcasing our latest innovations to the industry’s key decision makers.”
Swiss-based weholi made its debut in late 2014 and quickly gained traction. The intuitive and transparent online marketplace is an all-around win for timeshare owners who are renting and selling resort accommodations, including timeshare resorts, fractional ownership, and serviced condominiums. The platform brings a much-needed outlet to owners who want to present their offers directly to renters in search of excellent deals on accommodations that offer much more than just a hotel room. In doing so, weholi engages the next generation of vacation owners, offering a low-cost marketing channel that delivers new prospects to vacation properties at a fraction of the cost of traditional approaches.
“We’re delighted to welcome back our friends at weholi as a returning GNEX sponsor,” comments Paul Mattimoe, president and CEO, Perspective Group. “Delegates are always looking for innovative solutions, and weholi answers the call. It brings an excellent outlet to vacation property owners and club members who want to monetize their unused accommodations, while also promoting the benefits of timeshare to a wider audience through its highly attractive rental program.”
Each year, GNEX takes place in a different premier destination. Previous venues include: Atlantis, Paradise Island, Bahamas; Ritz Carlton Cancun, Mexico; Beverly Wilshire Hotel Beverly Hills, Calif.; Ritz Carlton Sarasota, Florida; and Manchester Grand Hyatt, San Diego, Calif.
On the eve of Mardi Gras, GNEX 2016 moves the conference to one of America’s most celebrated cities and the Ritz Carlton New Orleans in the French Quarter. This central location will put delegates within easy walking distance to the city’s iconic restaurants, bars and entertainment venues. Back at the hotel, Ritz-Carlton Spa® New Orleans is sumptuous, M Bistro’s farm-to-table menu is first-rate, and the live entertainment in the Davenport Lounge is among New Orleans’ best.
Last year, GNEX drew 200 senior-level executives from 120 companies across six continents. GNEX 2016 promises to set new records, with 100 registered delegates just weeks after tickets became available.
