Celebrate National Tourism Week
By Lou Ann Burney
May 9, 2012
While our industry always celebrates the value of vacationing, the week of May 5-13 gives us yet another reason to do so. This week is National Tourism & Travel Week, a week-long annual celebration of the tourism industry that began in 1984 with a proclamation from President Ronald Reagan.
ARDA is marking this week as a time to revisit our consumer outreach campaigns that showcase timeshare as a better way to vacation. VacationBetter.org, ARDA’s consumer website, houses our current Timeshare Fan initiative—where you can get a first-hand look at real timeshare owners and learn why they love vacationing with timeshare.
We are now expanding upon the success of this initiative to feature stories and highlights from vacation resort employees who help make vacations a special and time-honored tradition for owners. In addition to monthly owner spotlights, we will be sharing profiles of the “Faces of Timeshare” to not only celebrate the efforts of those working in the industry, but also to provide consumers an inside look at the resorts and the employees who make our owners rave about their annual vacations.
Take some time this week to plan your next vacation!
