BuyaTimeshare.com president and CEO Wesley Kogelman will share his experience from 16 years in the online timeshare resale marketplace at the up-coming national convention of the American Resort Development Association (ARDA).
Participating on the Online Marketplace Review and Website ROI panel, Kogelman will be discussing the importance of transparency in the secondary market, with specifics regarding sales, processes and the importance of resort and developer involvement in order to meet the growing needs of consumers looking for resale timeshare products.
Having started BuyaTimeshare.com in 2000, Kogelman has had a major influence in the online marketing of timeshare resales, with one million annual visitors coming to the website in search of information and deals.
“We see the buyers and renters every day coming to our site in search of a deal, and we know by the offers made through our platform that sales are taking place,” Kogelman said. “With over $100million in offers just in the last two years, we have documented consumer demand on our site. Resorts and developers need to take the secondary market seriously by participating with resale outlets to attract new owners.”
ARDA World 2016 will take place May 1-5, 2016 at The Diplomat Resort & Spa in Hollywood, Florida as over 2,000 delegates gather in the largest timeshare industry convention in the world.
The Online Marketplace Review and Website ROI session will be held Wednesday, May 4 at 3:15 pm and bring to light what makes a great online marketplace and how do it yourself platforms and membership communities can serve developers, resorts, owners and travelers.
“We have a very busy schedule of meetings already lined up and I am very excited about seeing colleagues and discussing how resales can benefit the bottom line of every resort,” Kogelman added.
