As the first ever LiveRez Partner Conference is coming to a close, let’s take a look at what the people who attended are saying about the event.

Kelly Hill of DoneRight Management

“The conference was a HUGE success. It is the best conference I have ever attended!”

Rebecca Alexander of Casas de Santa Fe

“I thought it was amazing! It was very informative and invaluable for my team to be here.”

Nancy Kramer of Nancy’s Vacation Rentals

“I think this partner conference has been awesome! And I think it really has a lot of potential. I can see next year the size doubling once the word gets around to how great it was and what great hosts the LiveRez family was.”

Pattie Freeman of Hawaii Vacation Rentals

“What incredible software we have to run Hawaii Vacation Rentals! Not only has LiveRez Vacation Rental Software created an incredible system for our business, they run it with a partnership and it just keeps getting better. Last night (Monday night) each partner was given an individualized copper plate honoring each company that came to the conference. I have never attended a business conference that was so heartfelt.”

Victoria Smith of Alpenglow Vacation Rentals

“I was very surprised at all the advanced technology that is coming down the pipe in LiveRez. I was wowed by the presentation. I just didn’t realize what I was going to walk into.”

Brian Olson of PointCentral

“It was one of the best conferences I’ve ever attended.”

Ruth LeDonne of Snowshoe Property Management

“The staff from Snowshoe Properties Management just returned from our conference in Boise, Idaho, and we are so excited and grateful that we participated in the first partners meeting. We just filled our boss in on what is going on and what things we can look forward to in the near future, and she is stoked! Proud to partner with a forward looking, inclusive company that responds to their family of clients’ needs and has our backs in the business of property management! Cannot wait until we do it again!!!!”

Arthur Hopson of Utah Lodging

“It has been a great conference. Thanks so much to LiveRez and their awesome team.”

Ellen Cantrell of Plumas Pines Vacation Rentals

“Ask me if I’ll come again and I’ll say ‘Yes.’ In fact, I’d rather put my dollars into attending this conference – which will help my website, help my company, help everything I do.”

Tina Jennings of Panama City Condo Vacations

“We brought a total of five team members here. I did that because there are so many things to learn, and I didn’t want to miss anything. It’s a big investment, but it’s very much worth it for our company.”

Barb Cool-Olson of Beachcomber Vacation Homes

“I really got a feeling of community, especially concerning the iVacationRental.com piece. It’s a pretty out there idea. I don’t know of another software company that is thinking on that kind of a level. And the fact that they are asking for input from an advisory board to help set the rules before they ever do anything – that is huge.”

Dawn Huff of Miss Kitty’s Fishing Getaways

“The partner conference has been fantastic. It’s so exciting to be a part of everything new that is coming out with LiveRez.”

2014 LiveRez Partner Conference Focuses on Ongoing Partnerships with Vacation Rental Managers, New Technology Innovations

Inaugural event leaves many attendees calling it the “best conference they’ve ever attended”

Priceline Chief Marketing Officer Brett Keller gives keynote address at 2014 LiveRez Partner Conference.

EAGLE, Id. –– LiveRez.com – the most widely used cloud-based software platform for professional vacation rental managers – announced new technology and showcased a strong commitment to its vacation rental manager partners at its inaugural partner conference, Sept. 7-12 in Boise, ID.

The conference – which drew more than 225 attendees from across the United States and as far away as Australia – left many calling it the best vacation rental industry conference they’ve ever attended.

“The LiveRez Conference exceeded my expectations on every level,” said Carol Smith of JFR Beach Rentals in Panama City Beach, FL. “I have been both a participant and facilitator at several conferences in the past, and I can honestly say that I have never been a part of a conference that was executed so well.”

The week-long event was stacked with big name speakers and major technology announcements.

Keynotes speakers included Priceline Chief Marketing Officer Brett Keller and Olympic Gold Medalist Dick Fosbury. The conference also saw a number of special guests, such as Idaho Governor Butch Otter, Boise Mayor David Bieter and Idaho Superintendent of Public Instruction Tom Luna.

The company also announced a host of new technology innovations, including its landmark project iVacationRental.com, a new industry portal that features only professionally managed inventory that is 100 percent bookable online in real time.

Other technology announcements included: a new mobile housekeeping and maintenance app, which features Google Glass technology; a state-of-the-art interactive reservation grid; responsive infrastructure for partner websites; updates to the company’s QuickBooks integration; search by map functionality for partner websites; and much more!

Additionally, the conference included a broad range of educational and networking opportunities. The first half of the week focused on larger breakout educational sessions and roundtable discussions, and the latter half moved into smaller, more specific workshops at LiveRez headquarters. Key among the topics discussed in the educational sessions was a strategy to decrease partners’ reliance on listing sites like HomeAway/VRBO.

Each night was capped with a spectacular reception, from an epic party and live band at the tiki-bar themed Reef restaurant in downtown Boise to a formal dinner to honor LiveRez partners at the top floor of Idaho’s tallest building. Monday night’s reception was especially heartfelt, as the company gave each partner a copper medallion highlighting their partner number, hand crafted by local artisan Delia Dante.

“From the moment we kicked off the conference with a prayer and the pledge of allegiance to the last workshop on Friday, I couldn’t have been happier with how the conference turned out,” said Tracy Lotz, LiveRez CEO. “I can’t wait until next year, when it will return even bigger and better.”

VIDEO: Local Artist Creates One of a Kind Copper Medallions as Partner Gifts at the 2014 LiveRez Partner Conference

Copper Medallions - LiveRez - Fire Fusion Studio

LiveRez commissioned local artist Delia Dante of Fire Fusion Studio to create one-of-a-kind medallions to give to partners as gifts at the 2014 LiveRez Partner Conference.

Monday night at the 2014 LiveRez Partner Conference, we were thrilled to present our partners in attendance with one-of-a-kind copper medallions from local artist Delia Dante of Fire Fusion Studio in Boise, ID.

Dante made all of the medallions by hand, starting with a solid sheet of copper. Each medallion went through a multi-stage process of refinement until the beautiful finished product was complete. Each medallion was customized to the partner, with a unique partner number which represents how long they have been using LiveRez. Dante further customized each medallion with colors from the partner’s website and branding. The finished products were beautiful, unique pieces of art that will now make their way from Boise all across the United States and abroad.

These gorgeous partner gifts were given out at LiveRez’s Monday evening reception to honor LiveRez partners. The event was hosted in downtown Boise at the top floor of the Zions Bank Building – the largest building in all of Idaho.

The Monday evening reception was held at the top floor of Zions Bank Building, the largest building in all of Idaho.
