LUXURY VILLA VACATIONS HIGHLIGHTED AT THE VACATION HOME EXPO
Top Villa Industry Experts Share Their “Insider Travel Tips”
GREENWICH, CT – (February 12, 2008) The Vacation Home Expo, the travel industry’s only consumer travel show focused on the condominium, villa, and vacation home rental experience, today announced a special panel seminar on the growing trend of luxury villa vacations. The Show, which is being presented by The Atlanta Journal-Constitution, will be open to consumers, the media, and travel trade on Saturday and Sunday April 12-13, at the Cobb Galleria Centre in Atlanta.
The seminar sharing insider travel tips, “How to Plan a Luxury Villa Vacation” will be moderated by villa pioneer Robert Eastman, Managing Director of Robert’s Villa List and founder of Villas of Distinction. The three expert panelists joining Robert Eastman are Bobby Gibson, CEO, Villas Caribe; Suzanne Pidduck, President, Rentvillas.com; and Tim Warburton, President and Founder, WIMCO.
According to Eastman, “The Vacation Home Expo offers us the rare opportunity to share our passion and knowledge directly with the traveling public about one of the fastest growing and most popular accommodation lifestyles. My co-presenters and I bring over 75 years of experience in the villa vacation sector. We’re excited that we can provide consumers with villa planning tips and recommendations as well as touch on some of the new, hot villa destinations.”
For too many years the common perception has been that luxury villa vacations attract only the “rich and famous” and simply represent a dream vacation fantasy for most people. Rick Fisher, President of Vacation Home Expo, is committed to helping dispel this long time myth and misconception. Fisher said, “In reality, a villa, even with multiple bedrooms, is often comparable in price or even less expensive than a traditional hotel room. When you factor in the additional amenities of separate living and dining areas, a fully equipped kitchen, expansive private balconies, and so much more, it’s not surprising that villas are becoming more and more the accommodation of choice for many vacationers.”
