Scheduled for Sept. 8-10, the conference will offer hands-on system training, best practices and networking opportunities to the more than 800 companies using the LiveRez software
EAGLE, Id. –– LiveRez.com, the industry leader in cloud-based software for professional vacation rental managers, will hold its inaugural LiveRez Partner Conference Sept. 8-10, 2014 at the newly renovated Owyhee Conference Center, a historic landmark set in the heart of downtown Boise, ID.
The conference will include hands-on training of the LiveRez software, workshops about vacation rental management and software best practices, broad networking opportunities, and a vast array of entertainment options to enjoy in the conference after hours.
Key among the topics discussed will be business strategies to help professional managers decrease their dependence on listing sites, like HomeAway, VRBO and others.
“This conference is all about helping our partners grow their businesses, their profitability and become more financially independent,” said Tracy Lotz, CEO of LiveRez.com. “One of the biggest concerns that managers have today centers both on their dependence on their listing sites for bookings and how their guest and owner data can be used.”
“During this year’s conference, we’ll unveil multiple tactics to help our property manager partners move away from listing sites, take control of their marketing efforts and become independently successful. And, our new iVacationRental.com initiative will be a big part of that effort.”
The conference is spearheaded by eLearning expert Doug Covey, a former Blueprint Education CEO who recently joined LiveRez as its Vice President of Partner Education.
“In planning this conference, our goal is to provide our property manager partners with actionable training and advice that they can immediately incorporate into their operations,” Covey said. “As a result, this conference will empower our partners to become more successful and at the same time allow us to learn more about how we can help them accomplish that.”
The three-day conference will feature a full docket of hands-on training classes, keynote speakers, networking events and the opportunity to tour the LiveRez headquarters and meet its staff. In the days before and after the conference, and during the evening hours, attendees will have the freedom to experience Idaho’s legendary outdoor recreational activities, as well as enjoy Boise’s vibrant downtown.
“As much as this conference is about business strategy, it’s also about relationships,” Lotz said. “And getting out and enjoying all that Idaho offers is a perfect opportunity for team building and strengthening relationships among our network of partners. We want attendees to know that they’re not just one-to-one business partners, but crucial members of the larger LiveRez family.”
