The official point of contact for ATHOC Membership should have recently received this email. We would strongly encourage you to get involved and fill in the survey so this can be a truly world-wide timeshare study on our economic impact.
Shared vacation ownership sales and resort operations represent a significant and growing force in the global economy. Unfortunately, our industry does not have a current set of figures to show the importance of vacation ownership or its most recent performance trends around the world.
We are working to fill this information gap and we need your help.
Earlier this month, the ARDA International Foundation released a survey of global timeshare resorts in partnership with Oxford Economics. This survey measures key industry metrics including sales volumes, product types, resort occupancy rates and operating metrics for every world region. The results will guide investment, operations, and policymaking decisions related to our industry for years to come.
The success of the study is dependent on responses from resort developers, management companies, vacation club operators and self-managed owner associations. The survey is only for non-US properties and requests information on an aggregated country basis. Like any other research conducted by the AIF, the data collected will be kept strictly confidential and the results will only be reported in aggregate. To show our gratitude, all participants will receive a complimentary copy of the final report when it is released in spring 2012.
