World Wide Shared Vacation Ownership Report is Now Available!

Shared vacation ownership sales and resort operations represent a significant and growing force in the global economy. In the past ten years, our industry did not have a current set of figures to show the importance of vacation ownership or its most recent performance trends around the world. After almost a year in production and with extensive collaboration with fellow timeshare trade associations around the world, the ARDA International Foundation is now pleased to present the World Wide Shared Vacation Ownership Report: 2012 Edition.

The study consists of two components: a worldwide resort survey conducted by Oxford Economics and a global household omnibus survey conducted by the Research Intelligence Group (TRiG).  All findings are summarized in this final report.
