becoming the expectation of our customers,
and we're working closely with our internal
digital and CRM partners to create a cohesive experience. At the end of the day, we're
seeking to mesh the physical and digital
worlds as we build brands.
We have two of the largest vacation club
brands in the industry-Club Wyndham
and Worldmark by Wyndham. Moving
forward, we want to rethink how we talk to
consumers about the vacation lifestyle and
make sure we're relevant and modernizing
for the future.
Most importantly, the work we're doing
is about more than just new logos-we're
rethinking every touchpoint throughout
the customer lifecycle so we can provide
high-quality experiences for our owners
and their guests.
Industry growth in the 2000s was faster
than the growth this past decade. The

growth from $7 billion to $10 billion prior
to the last recession took three years from
2004-2007. Growth in the post-recession
era was harder to come by, as it took seven
years to get from $7 billion to $10 billion.
Many factors go into that dynamic,
including global economic forces, changing demographics, and others beyond
our control. What we can control is our
brand-how we conduct business, how
we go to market, and how we position our
individual companies, our product, and
our overall industry. We're working harder
and longer to grow the industry. Strong
brands help retain those customers we
worked so hard to gain.
Edward Engel and Chad Benyon from
Macquarie Capital wrote last year about the
importance of strong brands to the industry: "'Brandification' has done wonders to
the timeshare industry's image," they wrote.

"With household names like Marriott,
Hilton, and Wyndham plastered on the
walls of sales centers, recently spun-off
timeshare developers are merely stewards
of leading brands and must maintain these
well-regarded images. In fact, we believe
this responsibility leaves developers more
accountable than ever before ... ."
A brand isn't simply the logo on the
front door of your resort or sales office.
The Dictionary of Brand defines brand as "a
person's perception of a product, service,
experience, or organization." We have
taken care to ensure our brand expression
embodies the duality of the vacation
experience: the journey (getting there) and
the destination (being there).
While we are working hard to evolve our
brands, we know that the evolution-like
our brand-is a journey, and it's one we
must take.
