GNEX 2012, the first timeshare and fractional industry event of the year, will be held January 31st – February 2nd, 2012, at the luxurious Ritz Carlton Cancun in Cancun, Mexico.
Scheduled for January 31st on a first-come, first-served basis, the Resort Tour will allow a limited number of delegates to go behind the scenes at some of the most successful resorts in the Cancun/Riviera Maya area.
“Attendees will have a great opportunity to meet some of the key senior personnel involved in these projects and will have a chance for early networking and to learn insights into the sales and marketing methods used by these resorts,” said Steve Luba, Chief Operating Officer, Perspective Magazine North America.
The additional resorts are:
Grand Velas Riviera Maya
The AAA Five Diamond Grand Velas Riviera Maya, an all-suites and spa resort located five minutes from Playa del Carmen, represents the latest and most sophisticated iteration of the ultra-luxury, all-inclusive resort experience. This Leading Hotels of the World designated resort is the preeminent one of its class boasting 491 suites, each more than 1,000 square-feet, in three separate ambiances-- adult-only ocean-front and ocean-view Ambassador Grand Class Suites, family-friendly Ambassador Suites and Zen Garden Suites embraced by the flora and fauna of the Mayan jungle.
Secrets Maroma by Unlimited Vacation Club
Secrets Resorts & Spas offer adults an extra measure of romance and sensuality in exquisite luxury settings. Located on the coast of the Yucatan Peninsula, Secrets Maroma Beach Riviera Cancun is located on one of the most pristine and famous beaches in all of Mexico, recognized as the World's Best Beach by the Travel Channel. This AAA Four Diamond resort boasts spectacular ocean views from 75% of its suites as well as ground floor suites with direct swim-out access to a pool from a private terrace.
Hidden within thick, tropical jungle on the Riviera Maya near Playa del Carmen, each resort is so private it is hard to imagine the others exist. But the beauty of Mayakoba is that they are all gracefully connected by crystal clear waterways and accessible by covered watercraft. Every restaurant, every spa, every beach chair is only a romantic boat ride away. Mayakoba is truly a destination within a destination. This private, gated community is rapidly becoming the most highly regarded distinctive collection of resorts on the coveted Riviera Maya.
During GNEX 2012, industry leaders from five continents will participate in interactive panel discussions designed to provide innovative ways to advance the shared ownership industry. The expo will also include informative presentations, a networking lounge for individual business meetings, the Palapa Speed Networking event and nightly social activities. The Perspective Magazine Awards Gala dinner will conclude the expo, at the Hacienda Tres Rios Resort in Riviera Maya the evening of February 2nd, as industry professionals vie for global recognition of excellence in over 40 categories.
