arrivia, formerly International Cruise & Excursions, Inc. (ICE) has been confirmed as the latest headline sponsor for the upcoming GNEX 2021 Conference. The “in person” vacation ownership industry event will be held in Miami, FL at the Eden Roc / Nobu Hotel from February 22-24, 2021.
Through its recent acquisitions of SOR Technologies and WMPH Vacations and subsequent rebrand, arrivia has successfully diversified and scaled its service offerings through partnering with some of the best brands in travel. The company uses points and alternative currencies to provide pricing opacity that allow it to secure the lowest prices on all forms of travel: cruise, resort, hotel, rental car, air and activities. Its business partners offer these extraordinary prices to their customers under their brand.
As a Gold Sponsor, arrivia will be the featured sponsor of the opening Networking Party; an outdoor event in the beautiful grounds of the beachfront Eden Roc / Nobu Hotel. It will include a reimagined version of GNEX’s signature Speed Networking; an interaction session that helps attendees meet each other and build relationships, as well as a premium open bar to welcome everyone to Miami Beach.
“We are pleased to support the GNEX Conference next February and we’re excited to share more about how our company is evolving to offer new functionality and services to serve our partners,” said Mike Nelson, arrivia CEO. “We are investing heavily in product and technology to ensure our partners have the most sophisticated loyalty solutions and their customers enjoy the lowest prices and the best user experience.”
The Global Networking Experience (GNEX Conference) produced by Perspective Group attracts senior-level executives and influencers in the vacation ownership and wider hospitality and leisure industries. Following its unforgettable 10th Anniversary event in Las Vegas earlier in 2020, this latest installment will be the first “in person” industry event for many in at least a year. For 2021, some careful considerations have been made and the format has been creatively adapted with extended indoor and outdoor space to ensure a safe and comfortable environment in which to bring the industry back together.
“arrivia is one of the powerhouses of the vacation industry and we are delighted to welcome then as a headline sponsor for our upcoming event. With such a wealth of products and services there will be many of our attendees interested in what they have to offer and how they can partner with them.” Says Paul Mattimoe, President & CEO, Perspective Group.
