With several owners trying to get out of their timeshare contracts along with a number of issues regarding timeshare ownership, the stakeholders founded the VOASA or Vacation Ownership Association of Southern Africa. For this year’s VOASA annual conference, Perspective Magazine President & CEO Paul Mattimoe will be addressing southern Africa’s most influential timeshare and fractional ownership industry participants.
During the said conference’s first full morning of activities on August 30th, Mr. Mattimoe will debut Perspective Magazine South Africa, the only independent timeshare and fractional industry trade magazine covering the southern Africa market.
According to Mr. Mattimoe, he’s delighted to be given the opportunity to speak at VOASA this year, and to tie it in with the launch of their dedicated South Africa edition of Perspective Magazine. He added that South Africa has a booming marketplace that is positioning for further growth and he’s looking forward to spending much more time getting to know those who operate within the timeshare and fractional industry in the region.
Meanwhile, Perspective Magazine is once again a media sponsor of the VOASA conference, which brings together industry leaders from all across the African continent for three days to discuss industry related issues. Delegates, speakers and sponsors on the other hand, can share information and learn new ways of aligning themselves to international best practices.
On day two of the event, Mr. Mattimoe will serve as an industry panel discussing the importance of social media and its place in overall marketing strategies. Conference delegates will also be discussing topics such as the state of the fractional industry, implications of the Consumer Protection Act, sales strategies and resales of such vacation properties.
