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).

Why You Should Go

1. Networking – The VRMA regional seminars provide unmatched opportunities for you to network and learn from some of the top professional managers in your region.

2. Education – Each year, VRMA puts together a stacked schedule of keynote speakers and educational sessions designed to help you take your operations to the next level.

3. Vendors – The top vendors in the industry always show up for these events. The vendor showcase is a great way for you to see all of the products and services available to help you run your business. If you are interested in vacation rental software, make sure you stop by our booth. You won’t be able to miss us.

4. SWAG – It stands for Free Stuff We All Get, and it’s all over the place at these events. Every vendor has free stuff to give away, whether it’s flash drives, mouse pads, pens or more. Make sure you leave extra room in your luggage for the cool stuff you’ll be taking home.

5. Prizes – If the first four items weren’t enough to sway your interest, maybe the chance at winning free prizes like iPads and big screen TVs will catch your attention. In addition to SWAG, most vendors will hold drawings for free prizes, which range from a few dollars in value all the way up to hundreds of dollars.

Why Other Managers Attend

Want to know why other professional managers attend VRMA conferences? Check our recent blog post where we interviewed six LiveRez partners and asked them why they choose to attend VRMA events.

Tips

If you’re planning on going, here are some tips:

1. Register Early – There is generally a discount for registering early.

2. Use Our Coupon Code – You can get an additional discount on registration by using our coupon code (refer back to the top section of this blog for more details).

3. Book Your Hotel Early – VRMA blocks off hotels rooms at a special rate for conference attendees, but these rooms tend to sell out fast. Even after they sell out, make sure you check back periodically, as some attendees reserve way more rooms than they really need and end up cancelling them as they get closer to the conference.

4. Plan Your Sessions in Advance – As it gets closer to the conference, VRMA will publish information on all of the available educational sessions. There are generally multiple sessions to choose from in each time block. So, it’s a good idea to look at the program in advance and select the ones you are most interested in attending in each block.

Greg, Wendy and their three young girls are ready to escape the snow in Manitoba, Canada, and buy a vacation home near Universal Studios in Orlando, Florida. With a million dollar budget, they’re looking for a home with all the bells and whistles; something near the theme park with a pool, a theater room, and plenty of guest rooms for all their relatives. But with their long wishlist, this house hunt may turn out to be more work than vacation.

All Star Vacation Homes’ appearance on HGTV will be the second for a LiveRez partner in the last year. Casas de Santa Fe was featured on HGTV”s “House Hunters on Vacation” in June 2012.
