European Fractional Ownership Awareness Day, Marbella 24th May


Preparations are underway for the first European Fractional Ownership Awareness Day of 2011, organised by The Registry Collection, the world’s largest luxury exchange programme.

The event, which is part of a series of roadshows across Europe, takes place at the Hotel Puente Romano in Marbella, Spain on 24 May, and will be hosted by Nick Turner, vice president Europe, The Registry Collection and Fractional Ownership Developments.

The day-long workshop will include an overview of fractional ownership, presentations on business planning, ownership structures, alternative investment schemes, sales techniques and routes to market. There will also be an opportunity for delegates to network in the afternoon.

Turner explained the rationale for taking the Awareness Days ‘on the road’ was to connect with the growing number of resort developers showing an interest in fractionals.

“We have invested heavily in big global events over the last few years but it’s apparent there is a gap where small to medium-sized resort developers are keen to learn more about the fractional ownership model but have not been able to travel to London or the US,” he said.

The Awareness Days, which kicked off in Ireland last December and will also take place in Cyprus, Italy and Portugal later this year, will provide a simple and concise summary of the fractional model. They will also give delegates the chance to meet experienced developers to learn more about key topics such as fractional market intelligence, legal issues and sales and marketing.

“This is a low-cost educational day giving people with an interest in fractionals the opportunity to talk with those that are established in the market and who are willing to share their experiences and present case studies,” added Turner. “We have been encouraged in this by the success enjoyed across the Caribbean with similar style events hosted by The Registry Collection.”

The Marbella roadshow will be followed by events in Cyprus, Italy and Portugal, with the following dates and venues:

• 1 June at the InterContinental Aphrodite Hills in Paphos, Cyprus.

• 28 June at the Star Hotel Michelangelo in Florence, Italy.

• 13 September at the Quinta da Marinha Resort near Lisbon, Portugal.

The day delegate cost for the full-day workshops listed above is €59 plus local taxes. To reserve a place or for further information, contact Amanda White by email:
