Catalyst Marketing SolutionsCatalyst Marketing Solutions, a Florida-based marketing agency that offers an instant cash back rewards program through a partnership with a leading Shopping App has announced that they will participate as a Bronze Sponsor at the new GNEX-ACOTUR 2021 Conference. The event will be held at the luxurious beachfront Ritz Carlton Cancun from 30th November – 1st December 2021.

Asociación de Complejos Vacacionales y Turísticos, A.C. (ACOTUR) has partnered with Perspective Group; the producers of the renowned GNEX Conference to create a Mexican vacation industry focused networking event in Cancun, Mexico, which will attract senior-level executives from ACOTUR member companies as well as local and international non-member companies.

Catalyst is the exclusive marketer of the Shopping App for the travel and vacation ownership industry. The app which is not available to the public, is used by companies to offer incentives and rewards to customers and employees to improve sales, marketing and retention. Each user of the app saves an average of 5% instant cash back on every purchase, every time IN-STORE as well as online with more than 300+ major retail, restaurants, entertainment and travel brands.

“Catalyst is excited to sponsor GNEX-ACOTUR 2021. Our company was formed by two vacation industry veterans after seeing the huge potential to help resort developers and marketers move from higher cost incentives that deliver low engagement to an innovative, easy to use, real cash back program. Our Shopping App program improves sales, marketing and customer retention, and drives quantifiable engagement which helps to offset annual fees associated with vacation ownership.” Says Christopher Hassall, CEO, Catalyst Marketing Solutions.

Catalyst will be showcasing its Shopping App rewards program at GNEX-ACOTUR, offering Mexican resorts the opportunity to offer their US members and guests an exciting VIP Member Benefit that saves them an average $300 – $500+ per year.

The original Global Networking Experience (GNEX Conference) is held annually as the first vacation ownership industry event of the year, typically in February or March and attracts an average 180-200+ senior level attendees from 100+ companies; bringing together industry leaders, innovators, and new faces from across the globe.

This new collaborative event with ACOTUR will bring the same focus on networking and similar format to the second largest global market for vacation ownership as a regional annual event that is open to everyone.
