Need a Jolt of Inspiration? Come to a Conference!
At LSI, it seems like we’re always travelling across the country – and the world – to see what’s new and changing in the vacation rental industry. Our LSI leaders are frequent speakers and contributors at varying conferences around the globe that focus on vacation rentals, and we always see these regular gatherings as an opportunity to brush up on the latest advancements, and reconnect with both old and new friends.
So we can say with some level of expertise that when it comes to acquiring a jolt of inspiration, there’s nothing quite like a vacation rental conference!
There are two big conferences that are coming up in the fall – RezFest on September 25-27 at Marco Island, Florida, and the International VRMA (Vacation Rental Management Association) Conference from October 27-30 in Las Vegas.
We’ll be at both events as presenters, sponsors, and all-around attendees, and if you’re thinking about going too, here are just a few reasons to get you inspired to come along!
New Technology, Information, and Changes
The best aspect of a vacation rental industry conference is that it’s a great place to get up-to-date information on recent changes that may affect our industry. From national or state-level legislative changes, to modern trends for new waves of vacationers, a conference is the forefront of information when it comes to what’s happening in our business on a global level. With regular presentations, keynote sessions, and information on what you need to know, you’ll be better prepared for the future, no matter what it brings.
There’s a reason why the small classes that are dotted throughout the day are called breakout sessions! In our minds, it’s because these special presentations are an opportunity to “break out” of your usual routine, and discover some new methodologies, software, tools, and tips that will help your business run even better. From preparing for hurricanes or other disasters, to streamlining your housekeeping department, to new marketing tools that will boost your income, you never know what you’ll learn at the many sessions offered at a vacation rental industry conference. Best of all, with concurrent sessions running throughout the day, you can pick a topic or subject matter that best applies to your specific business.
Meet, Mingle, and Compare
How do property managers work with the challenges of the vacation rental industry on the West Coast? Or the East Coast? Or in another corner of the world? Or in your own backyard? At a vacation rental industry conference, you’ll find out! The amount of knowledge to be gained just by chatting with other leaders from property management companies around the globe can’t be underestimated, and is a great way to meet, mingle, and compare operations with folks who are just like you. With regular mixers and events planned throughout a conference, you’ll find that there are ample opportunities to socialize with other industry leaders, and to gain new insight through shared experiences.
Reconnect with LSI!
Our favorite aspect of attending conferences is that it gives us an opportunity to talk with our clients one-on-one! Because we are all busy throughout the year, a conference is an opportunity for us to reconnect, talk about past and future projects, and to ensure that we are doing everything possible to make sure your company is as productive and efficient as possible. So if for no other reason, we hope to see you at RezFest and the International VRMA conferences so that we can connect with YOU. Carve out a little time to stop by our booth and talk with us, and let’s work together to make these upcoming conferences as productive and beneficial as possible!
