GNEX 2013 and the Perspective Magazine Awards Gala will be held February 4-6, 2013, at the world famous Beverly Wilshire – a Four Seasons Hotel in Beverly Hills, California. This terrific industry expo will create business development opportunities for vacation ownership executives from across the world as essential information is provided during panel sessions designed to provide constructive, and sometimes controversial, debate about the future of the shared ownership industry.
The event will include expanded networking breaks for business meetings in the specially-designed networking lounge, a welcome reception, the most innovative speed networking session in the industry and Hollywood-styled nightly social events.
The presentation of the Perspective Magazine Awards, sponsored by Holiday Systems International, will conclude the expo as timeshare and fractional industry nominees vie for global recognition of excellence in over 40 categories.
“I am very happy that SFX has decided to become a new exhibitor at GNEX 2013,” said Paul Mattimoe, president and CEO, Perspective International. “Mel had a great time attending our last event in Cancun and with the international success of SFX during the past 20 years, they are a perfect fit for our event.”

About SFX Preferred Resorts
In the early days of the timeshare industry, the exchange process restricted owners to solely using their home resort's affiliated exchange company. Seeing the need to help owners of high quality resort properties expand their level of benefits and options, Mel Grant founded The San Francisco Exchange Company – SFX Preferred Resorts in 1992.
By opening up the market place, SFX gives consumer's the ability to request quality resorts listed in multiple exchange networks, rather than being restricted to just one exchange company that is affiliated with the resort. Grant's vision to bring timeshare owners the freedom of choice and more options is expanding daily. Today, with over 100,000 members, SFX is one of the most sought after specialty vacation exchange companies in the world with a network of highly rated, brand name resorts in the USA, Mexico, the Caribbean, Canada, and Europe.
Key to the success of SFX is the quality level of customer service and support that it offers its members. The knowledgeable and experienced Exchange Coordinators at SFX assist in making member exchanges as effortless as possible so they can enjoy a multitude of superior quality vacation experiences.
As a result of the higher income demographic of SFX Members, SFX is also recognized as a preferred provider of lead-generation by many established and brand name developers.
