The Winning Line-up – Perspective Magazine Awards, GNEX 2011

Celebrating excellence in the global shared ownership industry

No less than 34 accolades – in the form of beautiful crystal trophies – were awarded to the winning companies and individuals at the first ever GNEX 2011 event held at the Atlantis Resort in the Bahamas recently.

The winners were presented with their trophies at the Perspective Magazine Awards on 12th May during a lavish gala dinner at the legendary luxury resort. 150 nominees were put forward for the awards, and were voted for by industry professionals and judged by a panel of experts.

The awards demonstrated the calibre of resorts, products and services that define both today’s timeshare and fractional industries, and focused on the quality, innovation, diversity and high standards shown across all sectors of the shared ownership market.

Paul Mattimoe, president and CEO, Perspective Magazine, said: “From the feedback we have received, we certainly succeeded and the demand for information on GNEX 2012 is tremendous. We are in the final stages of confirming our next conference and are very much looking forward to continuing to mould GNEX into exactly what delegates want from a modern event format.”
