Venue: Elangeni Southern Sun, Durban, South Africa – 29-31 August
Leading worldwide vacation exchange organisation Interval International will open one of the year’s most important timeshare and fractional ownership conferences, to be held at the Elangeni Southern Sun in Durban, South Africa from 29 to 31 August 2010.
David Clifton, Interval’s managing director for Europe, Middle East, Africa and Asia, will kick off the conference as keynote speaker and Darren Ettridge, Interval’s vice president of resort sales and service for Europe, Middle East and Africa, will participate on the “Fractional Ownership in Southern Africa” panel.

Delegates will include leaders in the hospitality industry, government officials involved in shared ownership legislation and the industry and some of the region’s leading and specialist resort developers.
