EUROC Seminar 2019

EUROC held a successful first seminar on 2nd September at The Lea Marston Hotel in Sutton Coldfield

The event gave committee members representing clubs and home owner associations (HOAs) from around Europe the opportunity to share ideas, discuss current and potential future issues impacting the world of timeshare ownership, as well as explore possible solutions together.

Sessions included building a community to create positive engagement with owners; making the most of exchanging timeshare weeks; updates from the Timeshare Task Force, the organisation fighting timeshare fraud; discussions on current and potential legislative, regulatory and market-driven issues that impact timeshare clubs and owners, and much more.

Jane Gilmartin, EUROC’s member relations manager, said: “The first update seminar was a great success, with a healthy turnout of committee members from a wide range of resorts who hopefully learned a lot but also gave us plenty of feedback.

“EUROC has got off to a great start with many key resorts signing up as founder members, including the likes of Cameron House, Loch Lomond, Diamond Resorts, Craigendarroch, Belton Woods, Lakeland Village, CLC World Resorts & Hotels, Slaley Hall, and Las Mimosas Beach Club.

“The message is getting out there and we’re aiming to get many more resorts and HOAs on board  in the near future.  It’s only by working together as an owner community that we’ll be able to keep clubs, resorts and owners at the forefront of all things relevant to timeshare ownership.”
