The Big Easy, here we come! We’ll be in New Orleans October 13 - 16 at the Hyatt Regency for the 2019 VRMA International Conference.

The VRMA International Conference is the best place to mingle with vendors and property managers alike to gain insights into industry developments and best practices. And, this year, it’s in New Orleans. What’s not to love?!

We are proud to this year to sponsor VRMA Battleground happening at 8.30am on Tuesday October 15. Join us to witness a group of start-ups compete for the title of VRMA Innovator of the Year. You’ll be the judge as they present fresh ideas and the products and services that will shape the future for vacation rental managers. Each pitch will be followed by questions from a panel of industry experts and a final audience vote to select the winner!

We are also excited that our Co-Founder and CEO, Ian McHenry, will be presenting alongside Scott Leggatt of Local Social, Inc. on Using Dynamic Pricing and Operational Data to Make Better Business Decisions. Catch them at 10.15am on Wednesday October 16 as they explore how to harnessing and properly utilizing the right industry analytics and metrics can be the primary differentiator in growing your business.

If you haven't yet done so, don't forget to register for our party on Monday night! All the details can be found here.

As data nerds we love to check out the stats for a city before we head there. New Orleans is a party town so it’s no surprise that we see large spikes in occupancy for the weekends. Holiday weekends are a popular time to visit the city, but they also have some great local festivals attracting crowds, including Voodoo Fest and Jazz Fest. Average occupancy is 51%, and in the last year Mardi Gras was on par with another event to have the highest level of occupancy at 85%. Can you guess what was? St Patrick's Day, featuring parade favors that include cabbages, potatoes and carrots, and all the green beer you can drink.

At the conference you will find us at booths #1300 and #1301. We are excited to have two spaces this year, one dedicated to meeting with prospective clients to discuss dynamic pricing and how it can work for you and your business, and another where current customers can connect with their Customer Success Manager and representatives from our Support Team to ask any questions they may have about their account.

Regardless of whether you are an existing customer or just interested in learning more about our dynamic pricing solution, please stop by the Beyond Pricing booths and say hi!
