GNEX 2013 is scheduled for February 4-6, 2013 at the world famous Beverly Wilshire – A Four Seasons Hotel in Beverly Hills, California, with the event constantly delivering innovative twists to the traditional format. Building on the major successes of the 2011 and 2012 events, GNEX has introduced a revealing level of transparency that provides prospective attendees from the timeshare and fractional industry with the information they need at the beginning of the year.
When delegate registration opened just weeks after the conclusion of the 2012 event, fifty tickets, representing a quarter of the currently available tickets, were offered with a staggering $500 discount off the final rate with the knowledge that the next fifty tickets would be at a rate of $1,195 and so on, moving closer to the final and still amazing value rate of $1,395. Despite the industry trend of late bookings for events, these first fifty delegate places were filled in just over two weeks.
“Typically, despite early bird rates, most conferences see the majority of attendees book in the last few weeks before the event, but momentum is already building towards GNEX 2013 and there's no sign of it slowing down,” said Paul Mattimoe, president and CEO, Perspective International. “The reason for this is the compelling clarity that the conference website provides and the value-added benefits offered to delegates that book early.”
Among those added benefits are that all attending companies receive a company bio and website link on the conference website which, in addition to being great exposure for them, provides everyone with a clear overview of the quality of companies attending the conference. Combined with the limited number of available tickets, such promotion makes a compelling argument for committing early and benefitting from the reduced rates, free exposure and website link provided through the industry’s fastest growing business development event.
GNEX 2013 will place a heavy emphasis on networking and business meetings, while the interactive panel sessions will be geared for healthy debate in order to foster solutions to the challenges facing the vacation ownership industry. The expo will also feature a networking lounge with extended breaks in the program so business can be conducted, while the Speed Networking will allow every attendee to meet each other in a fun, energetic atmosphere. The event also includes a Welcome Reception, nightly social events and the presentation of the Perspective Magazine Awards, sponsored by Holiday Systems International, where attendees will gather for an elite Black-tie Gala Dinner as nominees vie for recognition of excellence in over 40 categories.
