Orlando, FL (June 05, 2014) — RCI, the global leader in vacation exchange, has confirmed as a Platinum Sponsor for the 2014 Canadian Resort Conference to be held in Toronto.
The Canadian Resort Conference (CRC) is an annual conference hosted by Perspective Group on behalf of the Canadian Resort Development Association (CRDA), a trade association dedicated to furthering the interests of the resort industry in Canada and throughout the world.
RCI was established in 1974, pioneering the concept of vacation exchange and expanding the travel opportunities available to timeshare owners. The company has since grown to become the leader in the industry with nearly 4,500 affiliated resorts and approximately 3.7 million subscribing members.
“We are very pleased to be sponsoring this year’s CRDA conference, which provides unique insight into the vacation ownership industry in Canada,” said Debbie Wunder, vice president, RCI Business Development. “It’s important for all of us in the industry to participate in these types of educational and networking opportunities, and we are looking forward to another great event.”
CRC 2014 will be held 23-24 September 2014 at Pantages, a Skyline Hotel, just steps away from Downtown Toronto’s art, entertainment and shopping districts, and is considered among the leading boutique hotels in the city.
Attracting delegates from Canada, USA, Mexico, The Caribbean and beyond, CRC 2014 will focus on all that the Canadian Resort marketplace has to offer for companies looking to expand into that market and insights into how to attract Canadian vacationers to other destination hotspots. Panel sessions will also look at pertinent issues affecting the state of the industry and updates from the Canadian Resort Development Association.
“RCI has been a long-standing supporter of CRDA’s annual trade conference and we are delighted to have their continued support as we work to expand its reach and size moving forwards,” says Paul Mattimoe, President & CEO, Perspective Group.
Registration for CRC 2014 is now open and as the event continues to take shape, the latest information will be made available at http://www.canadianresortconference.com. There are also regular updates available at http://www.facebook.com/CanadianResortConference.
