EAGLE, Id. –– Today LiveRez.com has announced that its CEO Tracy Lotz will speak at the 2014 Vacation Rental Managers Association (VRMA) Annual Conference, which runs Oct. 26-29 at the Sheraton Hotel and Marina in San Diego, CA.

A 20-year veteran of the industry, Lotz has helped pioneer a number of advancements in the vacation rental space.

In 1994, he created one of the industry’s first websites where professional managers could list their properties online. In the mid-2000s, he helped bring online bookings to the industry. And in 2008, he launched LiveRez, the first truly all-in-one, cloud-based software platform for vacation rental managers. Just six years later, LiveRez is now the most widely used cloud-based software platform for professional vacation rental managers.

His most recent project is another landmark effort. At the company’s recent conference for its users (called partners), Lotz announced the ongoing development of iVacationRental.com, the first major website in the industry that will feature only professionally managed inventory that is 100 percent bookable online in real time.

During his speech at the VRMA Annual Conference – slated for the morning of Monday, Oct. 27 – Lotz will discuss important changes coming to the industry and highlight some of the new innovations being developed at LiveRez.

“I am thrilled for the opportunity to speak at the world’s largest gathering of professional vacation rental managers,” said Lotz, whose company is a perennial Gold Sponsor of the VRMA. “Right now is a pivotal time in the history of the vacation rental industry. And I’m excited to discuss how LiveRez plans to help shape the future of this industry.”
