The luxury exchange program reached approximately 48,000 members
PARSIPPANY, N.J. (March 15, 2016) – The Registry Collection® program, the world’s largest luxury exchange program, saw strong growth in 2015 in both member numbers and expansion of its network of affiliated properties. The program, which boasts approximately 200 properties accessible for exchange or under development, added more than 20 new properties to its network last year and grew its membership base by approximately 50 percent.“We are celebrating a fantastic close to the year with the addition of some truly remarkable properties that align with our luxury exchange network’s current offerings,” said Gregg Anderson, global vice president of The Registry Collection program.
“As our network continues to expand, so has our membership number,” continued Anderson. “We are thrilled to have added thousands of members last year, and can’t wait to assist them in booking holidays to incredible locations all over the world. We have already hit the ground running in 2016, and are looking forward to another great year ahead.”
One of the program’s most recent affiliations is AVANI Sepang Goldcoast Resort, which is set over the waters of the Malacca Straits of Malaysia and impresses on many levels. Easily recognizable from above, its over-water villas are laid out in the shape of a palm tree, and feature fresh and contemporary design. Travelers here can relax on their private balconies or terraces while drinking in the views of the open water and stunning sunsets.
“The Registry Collection will bring the standard of sales and our product to a very different level,” said Steven Yap, vice president of property and management for AVANI Sepang Goldcoast Resort. “As The Registry Collection is relatively new in both the Malaysian and the Asian market, it will likely bring a breath of fresh air to the luxury vacation club industry and we hope that by providing such a product, we will be able to introduce a different and unique level of service and experience to the market.”
In addition to growth in affiliated resort properties, The Registry Collection program’s membership base has grown by approximately 50 percent. The approximately 48,000 members of The Registry Collection program have access to exchange options across six continents. Membership also brings with it some additional travel benefits: the program gives them access to Collection Partners, which are third-party vetted luxury travel providers that offer special pricing and exclusive benefits to members, as well as a travel concierge service that is available 24 hours a day to assist with any travel planning needs.
