LiveRez Director of Sales and Marketing Tyler Hurst presents at the company’s recent Park City Summit, held in an amazing 8,000 square foot luxury estate.

This week LiveRez hosted its latest Summit Series breakfast seminar in beautiful Park City, UT. We had a great venue — an 8,000 square-foot luxury estate — and a great turnout filled with a mix of LiveRez partners and other local professionals.

In the educational seminar, we had a range of presentations on new technology, local website traffic trends, software best practice and more. Additionally, managers had to chance to discuss a wide variety of topics in our round table discussions. It’s always amazing to learn more about the challenges vacation rental managers face and hear them share the ways they tackle those challenges. And, it’s even better getting to hear how LiveRez is making a big difference in their operations.

The event is part of LiveRez’s ongoing Summit Series, an initiative that has the company hosting educational seminars all over the United States to meet with its partners and other professional managers. LiveRez will be releasing information on more Summit stops this year in the near future. Currently, the company is focusing on its inaugural Partner Conference, which will be held Sept. 8-10 in Boise, ID.

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.

LiveRez Partner Utah Vacation Homes Featured in International Television Series

Utah Vacation Homes Getting Away Together TV Show

Utah Vacation Homes was featured on the Park City Episode of Getting Away Together in early June 2013.

LiveRez partner Utah Vacation Homes was recently featured in an episode of Getting Away Together, an international reality television series that highlights travelers staying together in professionally managed vacation rentals.

The company was showcased in early June in the Park City episode, and in late June filming wrapped on a second episode in St. George / Zion National Park, which will also feature homes from the company.

“Utah Vacation Homes is honored to be featured in two episodes of Getting Away Together,” said Tristan Webb, owner and president of Utah Vacation Homes. “Utah will definitely enjoy expanded recognition for its many and diverse destinations.  We believe Park City and St. George / Zion National Park are two world-class vacation destinations, and the TV show captures the emotional exuberance of these first-time visitors.”

In just its second season, Getting Away Together is broadcast on more than two thirds of PBS Stations across the United States and in nearly half of the top 25 television markets. The show is broadcast in all 50 states and has the ability to reach 65 percent of U.S. households.  In May, it was announced that the show will now also be distributed globally by Canamedia.

Produced by the Emmy Award-winning team at PineRidge Productions, Getting Away Together is part of an awareness initiative by the Vacation Rental Managers Association. By highlighting the growing trend of sharing vacation rentals with friends and family, the show has helped professionally managed vacation rentals gain awareness as an increasingly popular alternative to hotels.

The Park City Episode

The Park City episode follows three athletic young couples from Arizona on their summer vacation to Park City.  During their stay, you see the group enjoying all that Park City has to offer. The couples partake in summertime ski jumping and bobsledding, zip lining and mountain biking. They attend an outdoor concert, take in Park City’s Sunday Market, experience a whisky tasting at a local distillery, enjoy dining at local restaurants and more.

All the while, the couples make their base camp at one of Utah Vacation Homes’ stunning vacation rentals. You can find more information about the Park City episode at the company’s website.

The full Park City episode is embedded below. And, you can view many other episodes of the show online at GettingAwayTogether.com.

The St. George / Zion National Park Episode

Getting Away Together and Utah Vacation Homes TV Zion National Park

Film crews follow the action, as the cast family enjoys all that St. George and Zion National Park has to offer.

The St. George / Zion episode will feature a professionally managed vacation rental home from the Inn at Entrada, for which Utah Vacation Homes provides marketing and reservations.  The “cast” family for this episode is a multi-generational group brought together to celebrate their patriarchs’ 40th wedding anniversary. The vacation brings together three generations in total: the couple, their daughters (and their husbands), and all the grandkids.

Webb said the family had always wanted to visit Zion National Park, and this vacation allowed them that visit. It also featured some unexpected activities including ATV riding on red dunes, waterskiing at Sand Hollow State Park and Reservoir, attending Broadway shows at Tuacahn Ampitheater, learning sculpting from world renowned sculptor Ed Hlavka, and enjoying the world-class resort facilities at Entrada at Snow Canyon Country Club Inn and Resort.

“Watching the film crew capture these adventures and reflections was a real learning experience,” Webb said. “I have great respect for Pine Ridge Film and TV for their work. The families took home great memories and will be able to renew their experiences online or on TV.”
