Interval Community Shines As Social Network For Vacation Owners

Stocks in this article: IILG

Interval International, a prominent worldwide provider of vacation services and an operating business of Interval Leisure Group (Nasdaq: IILG), continues to be an industry leader in online vacation owner interaction with Interval Community. The company's members-only forum is hosted on IntervalWorld.com, and was created for members to connect with other members and share their experiences in real time.

With more than 147,000 member profiles, Interval Community is one of the largest timeshare social networking forums in the world. The site boasts more than 8.2 million page views and 43,000 content postings since its launch just two years ago. And the conversations are emanating from all corners of the world — from the U.S. to Latin America and Australia.

What's more, many members have become brand advocates and fans, engaging their fellow members in dialogue about their vacation exchanges and travel adventures, among other topics. The most prolific “poster” has shared nearly 700 comments to date.

“We’re thrilled to see members continuing to find Interval Community such a valuable meeting place,” noted Sharon Freed, Interval’s senior vice president of consumer marketing. “Their conversations help them make the most of their vacation ownership and help us better understand their ever-changing needs.”

In fact, Interval Community has proven to be a powerful customer service and consumer research tool because members provide a wealth of insight about exchange, membership benefits, destinations and cruises, among other topics. Interval leverages this information in its product development process and shares relevant feedback with resort developer clients.
