NEW BRUNSWICK, NJ — April 2, 2019 — Futurestay is presenting at ARDA World 2019, the Global Timeshare Event. Taking place at Hilton Orlando in Orlando Florida, Futurestay CEO, S. Philip Kennard and COO, Jonathan Fabio will be attending from April 7-11, 2019.
As explained on their website, “The American Resort Development Association (ARDA) is the Washington, DC – based trade association representing the vacation ownership and resort development industries (timeshares). With nearly 600 corporate members and 5,000-plus engaged associates, ARDA members hail from privately held firms to publicly traded corporations with extensive experience in shared ownership interests in leisure real estate.”
The timeshare and resort industry is strong and steadily growing, but facing new challenges from an aging customer demographic and the rapid global mainstreaming of vacation rentals.
Futurestay CEO, S. Philip Kennard points to these complexities and how Futurestay’s technology solves these challenges. He says, “Fractional ownership of timeshare inventory makes it even more complex to distribute to today’s leading vacation rental channels like Airbnb, HomeAway and Booking.com. Neither timeshare or vacation rental software was architected for this unique challenge.
We believe in connectivity, on-demand. That’s why Futurestay’s Elastic Availability™ dynamically creates and removes units as availability changes, allowing timeshare developers to connect to modern vacation rental platforms and turn a new type of traveler into a potential buyer.”
Futurestay’s Lion’s Den presentation will give more insights into the use of technology and on-demand connectivity for timeshares.
