Dover, NH (May 20, 2011) –- Jason Tremblay, founder of Sell My Timeshare NOW, LLC, the global leader in online timeshare resale and timeshare rental marketing, was a featured panelist this week at the Global Networking Expo & Perspective Magazine Awards Gala, held at the Atlantis Resort, Paradise Island, Bahamas.
Tremblay was one of six international timeshare experts who spoke on “Burning Issues” to the shared ownership resort industry. The panelists discussed a wide range of topics, including consumer and media perception and potential product weaknesses. Navigating Change was the theme of the two-day event, attended by timeshare executives from around the world.
Jason Tremblay pointed out that about 17 percent of the traffic at SellMyTimeshareNOW.com comes from outside the United States. He added, “Clearly the vacation ownership industry must change its developer marketing model. Selling timeshares through individual sales presentations adds roughly 50 percent in marketing costs to the price of each timeshare sold. Today’s consumers want to comparison shop. Not only do Gen X prospects arrive at timeshare sales presentations with their iPods, iPads and Blackberries, so do Baby Boomers. Search engine traffic shows that the demand to buy timeshares online is already extremely high.”
Added fellow panelist Robert J. Webb, a board certified real estate lawyer from Baker Hostetler, “In five years, the timeshare product will be sold on the Internet. If a company is not ready for that, they’ll be out of business.”
Other speakers on Tremblay’s Burning Issues panel included: Ross Perlmutter, President, Canadian Resort Development Association; Ramy Filo, CEO, Classic Holiday Group; Harry Taylor, Executive Chairman, Timeshare Association of Timeshare Owners Committees and Bryan Lunt, Chairman & CEO, Absolute World Group of Companies.
