Going Green: Resort Tips and Tricks

The green design movement is transforming the marketplace like no other innovation in the lifetime of most designers. Green design has brought to the forefront of the design and construction community a holistic view of how to design, build, reconstruct and operate higher performing buildings. As such, the noble goals espoused by green buildings are certainly worth pursuing - but it must be done with significant care. If not, some of the green building "best practices" could be at odds with one another. Sustainable design and operations are not only good for business, it is helping us to extend the life of our products and improving our operations. Learn about implementing changes in the short and long term that will improve the bottom line.

11:15 am-12:15 pm  The New Face of Timeshare

Now the largest generation in the U.S., Millennials have different views on vacationing than previous generations. When they do take vacations, they want flexibility and a truly unique experience. Thankfully, Millennials grew up with the “sharing economy” in the digital age, and are one of the biggest users of it. For that reason, the concept of timeshare is not foreign to them, but their perception of it can be dependent on past experiences or cultural trends. Learn how to tailor your message and communication channels to reach millennials. And explore how minor product enhancements could give you a customer for a lifetime.
