More Than 100 Managers Attend LiveRez Training Bootcamp in Destin

Partners Beef Up Their Teams’ Skills with Hands-On Training from LiveRez Coaches

Partners came away from LiveRez's Training Bootcamp in Destin, FL with stronger employees and healthier businesses. More than 100 professional vacation rental managers came from all over the southeast — one partner even flew in from France — to attend Tuesday’s LiveRez training bootcamp in Destin, FL.

There were so many partners in attendance, we had them to break them up into three groups, for the many classes offered. These classes covered everything from LiveRez’s new accounting system to lead management to optimizing property listings to pricing and options, and more!

Throughout the day, there was plenty of time for networking, including a full hour of round table discussions at the end of the day.

But, the training didn’t end at the bootcamp. Throughout the week, the LiveRez team visited local partners at their offices to provide on-site training.

It’s all part of a big focus this year for LiveRez: Improving the health of our partners’ businesses by getting them more and better system training, and sharing best practices throughout the LiveRez network. We know that when our partners are more successful, LiveRez is more successful.

Check out the photos below to see all the fun we had in Destin this week (more photos to come).

LiveRez to Hold 2015 Partner Conference in Sun Valley

The company’s second annual gathering of its property manager partners will run October 19-23 at the world renowned Sun Valley Lodge

EAGLE, Id. –– LiveRez.com – the most widely used cloud-based software platform for professional vacation rental managers – today announced that its second annual Partner Conference will run Oct. 19-23 at the world renowned Sun Valley Lodge in Sun Valley, Id.

Already known as one of the most iconic resorts in the country, the historic Sun Valley Lodge is currently undergoing a $51 million renovation that includes enlarging and upgrading guest rooms, updating the lobby, restaurant and other guest amenities, and building a new 20,000 square foot full-service spa.

“The Sun Valley Resort is the ultimate destination for a conference of this caliber,” said LiveRez CEO Tracy Lotz. “Our mission is to make this annual event the premiere conference in the vacation rental industry.”

2015 LiveRez Partner Conference - Sun Valley, ID

The 2015 LiveRez Partner Conference will run Oct. 19-23 at the iconic Sun Valley Lodge in Sun Valley, Id.

The company’s inaugural Partner Conference in 2014, held in Boise, drew more than 220 LiveRez partners (software users) from across the United States and as far away as Australia. In a post-conference survey, these professional managers had nothing but positive comments about their experience:

  • 100 percent of respondents said the conference was as good or better than other industry conferences
  • 95 percent said they would attend again
  • 93 percent said they would recommend it to a colleague

One month after announcing the dates of the 2015 Partner Conference, registration is brisk and LiveRez expects the event to sell out.

“We are thrilled to see such a strong early interest in this year’s conference,” Lotz said. “With six months left before the conference, we expect the turnout to approach 500 attendees.”

The 2015 edition of the conference will feature a full docket of hands-on training sessions, keynote speakers, networking events and two days of specialized workshops for interactive learning. At the five-day event, attendees will also get a first look at the new technology LiveRez is developing.

The location of this year’s conference also marks a homecoming of sorts for the company, which was founded in nearby Hailey, Id.

Leadership Students from Boise High School Visit LiveRez, Learn About Careers in Technology

BoiseHigh-0292

LiveRez CEO Tracy Lotz and LiveRez VP of Development Casey Riley speak to a group of leadership students from Boise High School.

This week a number of leadership students from Boise High School visited the LiveRez headquarters to learn more about careers in computer science and web technology.

The group of more than 25 students toured the LiveRez headquarters and learned how each department contributes to growing LiveRez and helping our property manager partners. After the tour, the LiveRez development team gave presentations on the different types of roles employees play on the web development and design teams. The group even got a sneak peek at some of the new technology LiveRez is working on.

This is the second group of local high school students to visit the LiveRez headquarters in the last month. In April, a computer class from Boise’s Bishop Kelly High School were treated to a similar tour and presentations.

Check out our slideshow of photos from their visit.

Local Computer Class Visits LiveRez, Learns About Careers in Technology

On Monday, LiveRez played host to a special group of local students. Tom Holdridge’s computer class from Boise’s Bishop Kelly High School took a field trip to LiveRez to learn more about what a career in technology is like.

The group toured the LiveRez headquarters, getting to see every department within the company. Then, they were treated to a presentation from the LiveRez development team. Spearheaded by LiveRez VP of Development Casey Riley and his team, the presentation covered different technology career options and gave the students insight into what different LiveRez developers do on a daily basis, as well as the types of technology they use.

This is one of many classes Holdridge has brought to LiveRez over the years. In fact, in the past LiveRez has even hired some of his former students as summer interns.

Check out our slideshow of photos from their visit.

LiveRez Workshops Attract Vacation Rental Managers from All over the Country

Workshop-0198Last week multiple LiveRez partners made the trip to Boise, ID for the first workshop of the year – some traveling from as far away as Michigan.

Over the course of two days, these managers received a complete docket of system training from basic reservations to accounting to CRM to marketing and much more.

In the afternoon hours, many received one-on-one training from LiveRez employees. Whether it was helping them understand the CRM system to aiding them in setting up their email marketing to one-on-one accounting assistance, the LiveRez team was ready and willing to help.

Every afternoon, the group was also treated to a sneak peak of upcoming LiveRez technology. Included in the demonstrations were innovations designed to simplify the reservation process and take property care and operations to a new level.

But the workshops weren’t all about learning. There was some fun to be had, as well.  On Wednesday and Thursday nights, partners were treated to dinner receptions, where they could get to know the LiveRez team better and network with fellow managers.

And when it was time to leave, the partners didn’t just return home with new ideas and a better understanding of the LiveRez system, they also brought home custom-made partner medallions.

While it was hard to see them go, we were thrilled to have so many amazing partners make the trip to Boise for our workshops. And, we look forward to seeing many more as we release the dates for upcoming workshops.
