From October 26th-29th Kigo will be at the annual VRMA conference. This year’s event is being held in San Diego, California. It is the biggest event of its kind and we can’t wait to get to San Diego to meet everyone to reveal what we have been working on.
It has been an eventful year for Kigo after being acquired by Realpage. Having expanded our team we have been working together to look how Kigo can keep improving. At the VRMA conference we are going to be unveiling how we are working to make Kigo the only software vacation rental managers will need to run their businesses.
Last year’s event, this time held in Nashville, attracted thousands of keen industry insiders, including 900 vacation rental managers. With 90% of them saying they would recommend the event, San Diego 2014 promises to be unmissable.
In 2013 we were able to meet a wide range of professionals and managed to forge connections and links that we still use today. These are not just in regard to sales. We met people that helped us understand our product, and what vacation rental managers want from it in the future. Learn, grow and expand. These are the basic reasons why Kigo attends events like the VRMA. We want to provide the best product possible. It is simply the best way to find out what your customers need, get them in a room and ask them!
Must attend sessions
There will be more than 55 educational sessions from expert speakers over the course of the event. We are in a great position to learn from the people that have made this industry the success it is and are focused on driving it forward.
We are particularly looking forward to attending the session on Remote Property Management – where else can you find out exactly what challenges your customers are facing? A vacation manager that has properties up 10 hours from her home explains how she manages them all as efficiently as if they were down the road. We want to learn about the tools successful managers use to organise and communicate with their business and see what we can learn to make Kigo even more effective.
The 5 Major Trends Changing the Vacation Rental Industry is another must-attend. If we don’t know where the industry is headed then we are unable to change and develop our product to fit it.
We are also hoping to attend sessions on Third-Party Channels hosted by a whole panel of industry leaders. We want to see what they think the next step will be for sites that have so far revolutionised the business. In between these sessions our team will be demoing Kigo throughout the event and will be available to answer any questions you may have.
If you’re attending come and say hello – our team will be at Booth 308/310 from the 26th-29th and will be providing demos of the changes and improvements we have made.
