Gordon McClendon, CEO, SPI SoftwareSPI Software, the timeshare industry’s leading technology partner for over four decades, has confirmed participation as a Bronze Sponsor at the upcoming GNEX-CRTA 2022 Conference, a collaboration between Perspective Group, who produce the renowned GNEX Conferences, and Canadian Resort and Travel Association (CRTA), which is set for 19-21 September in Toronto, Canada.

Founded in 1978, SPI Software is widely respected for its corporate philosophy of continuous development and innovation, which has led them to create some of the world’s most advanced timeshare/vacation ownership-focused technology solutions.  They have been implemented by resorts and companies on five continents.

SPI has been a regular supporter of GNEX Conferences, and along with their GNEX-CRTA 2022 sponsorship, has also confirmed Bronze Sponsorships at GNEX-ACOTUR 2022 Conference in Cancun, Mexico in November and the main GNEX 2023 Conference in San Diego next March.

“One of the primary reasons for our success and longevity,” says Gordon McClendon, SPI Software CEO, “has been our flexibility to adapt to constant changes in software advancements and listen to requests from developers and resorts as the timeshare product has evolved. We have remained the primary supplier to these properties by providing world-class software solutions and exceptional customer service. Our clients do not need to adapt their business to our software; we configure our software to their unique needs.”

With more than three months still to go, this inaugural conference has already attracted more than 50% of its expected number of attendees, showing once again that the vacation industry has an appetite for more of the GNEX Conference format which focuses heavily on Networking.

“We are delighted to have SPI return as a sponsor and thank them for their support of all three of our upcoming events. Technology is always a big part of our events and SPI continue to be at the forefront of technology for the vacation industry.” Says Paul Mattimoe, President & CEO, Perspective Group; organizers of the three GNEX format events.

GNEX-CRTA 2022 will be held at the Hyatt Regency Toronto in the heart of Downtown Toronto’s Entertainment District, 19-21 September 2022 and will attract senior executives from the vacation industry from Canada, USA, Mexico, Caribbean and beyond.

In addition to being heavily structured around networking and business development, the conference also delivers powerful and unique general sessions with insights from industry leaders on hot topics impacting the industry, interesting and inspiring presentations, interactive workshops and memorable social events. For GNEX-CRTA 2022, senior execs will also be discussing how to market and sell to more Canadian buyers of travel and vacation club products both domestically and internationally.
