Atlantic Vacation Homes recently traveled to vibrant New Orleans for the Vacation Rental Managers Association's Annual Conference (Oct. 25-28, 2015). The Vacation Rental Managers Association (VRMA) is a professional trade association of the vacation rental property management and hospitality industries. The VRMA Annual Conference is the largest event in the professionally managed vacation rental industry -- this year saw record attendance with over 1300 participants. With more than 56 educational sessions offered and a Vendor Showcase boasting more than 70 industry-leading vendors, the Annual Conference dove deeper into the "why" of vacation rental management, providing in-depth insight on business strategy, industry trends, and sales & marketing. The ideas and techniques that we learned at the VRMA Annual Conference will help us to improve our business, provide better value to homeowners and boost guest satisfaction. 

Heading into the conference, we got the news that Atlantic Vacation Homes' owner and president Carole Sharoff was re-elected to a second term on the VRMA Board of Directors. The VRMA Board is responsible for overseeing and setting direction for the business and affairs of the association. Congrats, Carole!

Below are some photo highlights from the conference:

VRMA definitely made the most of the New Orleans theme.

There was record-breaking attendance with 1300+ participants. There were lots of opportunities for networking and learning from our industry peers.

This is the VRMA's 30th year, and to celebrate, VRMA hosted a fantastic party at the House of Blues. 

The  2016 annual conference will be in Chandler, Arizona  -- we can't wait!
