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.”

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.

Tuesday, the 2014 LiveRez Partner Conference saw two distinguished guests: Idaho Governor Butch Otter and Boise Mayor David Bieter.

The mayor gave conference attendees an exciting look into the city of Boise, mixing in a dose of humor and interesting facts about the city he so loves. He ended his speech by teaching attendees a few words in Basque, a culture that is a big part of the history of the city.

Then, Idaho Governor Butch Otter took the stage to welcome conference attendees to the state of Idaho. Otter talked to attendees about Idaho, sharing interesting facts about the state. Among other things, he recounted how LiveRez was part of Idaho’s thriving technology industry, which includes tech giants like Micron and HP.

Here at LiveRez, we can’t thank the governor and the mayor enough for taking time out of their busy schedules to come speak at the inaugural partner conference.

Check out the slideshow below to see pictures of their visit.

Day 2 of the 2014 LiveRez Partner Conference is in the books, and what a great day it was. The morning started with two very special guests: Boise Mayor David Bieter and Idaho Governor Butch Otter. It was such a pleasure to have both of them take the time of their busy schedules to come and talk to conference attendees and welcome them to Boise and the great state of Idaho.

Next, came the keynote speech from Olympic Gold Medalist Dick Fosbury. Fosbury forever changed the sport of high jumping by introducing a revolutionary new technique now known as the “Fosbury Flop.” During his speech, Fosbury talked about the process of developing his new technique, how he overcame early failure and turned doubters into believers. His inspiring speech took conference attendees behind the scenes of the 1968 Olympics, where Fosbury was a key member of one of the most dominant US Teams ever. It was during the 1968 Olympics that Fosbury’s flop technique gained widespread attention, when he won the Gold Medal breaking US and Olympics records in the process. His technique is now the standard method used by high jumpers worldwide.

After a full docket of educational sessions, it was time to announce new products! LiveRez technology leaders Brian Sevy and Casey Riley showed partners all the new technology they are working on, including a new mobile app for  housekeeping and maintenance, a real-time property status dashboard, a new tape chart (reservation grid), improved image management, responsive websites and much more. Then, they turned over the reins to LiveRez CEO Tracy Lotz and LiveRez Chief Strategy Officer Steve Trover, who introduced partners to LiveRez’s landmark project iVacationRental.com, the first major website that features only professionally managed and 100% real-time bookable inventory.

The day finished with an amazing reception at The Reef, a tiki-bar themed restaurant in downtown Boise.
