ORLANDO, FL (March 3, 2015) — Twenty companies and professionals were honored with one of the timeshare industry’s highest honors during a one-of-a-kind gala, Feb 17, at the record-breaking Fifth Annual GNEX Conference in San Diego, Calif.
The 2015 Perspective Magazine Awards ceremony took place during a spectacular private event aboard the legendary USS Midway Navy aircraft carrier, now serving as a museum in the San Diego Bay. Attendees enjoyed cocktails and dinner along with guided tours of the Admiral’s quarters and command center and 360-degree air combat flight simulators. The party culminated with the announcement of winners before senior-level industry executives from more than 115 companies.
The Perspective Magazine Awards program is a coveted global recognition program that uniquely combines a panel of four judges with a public online vote. Each judge represents 20 percent of each nominee’s overall score, with the public vote accounting for the remaining 20 percent and representing a 5th wildcard judge.
