President of Wyndham Vacation Rentals North America Invited Back as Panelist at 
Mountain Travel Symposium 2013 
PARSIPPANY, NJ -- (Marketwired) -- 04/04/13 --  Wyndham Vacation
Rentals(R), the world's largest professionally managed vacation
rentals business and part of the Wyndham Worldwide family of brands
(NYSE: WYN), announced today that Bob Milne, president, Wyndham
Vacation Rentals, North America has been invited back to Mountain
Travel Symposium (MTS) to participate in a roundtable discussion
about direct bookings versus intermediary business. "Connecting
Travelers and Suppliers: Disruption or Status Quo?" will be held on
Wed., April 10 from 4:30 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. at Westin Snowmass
Conference Center in Snowmass, Colo.  
Milne, who has more than 25 years of experience in hospitality and
resort property management, will be joined by industry peers from
Vail Resorts and Destination Hotels & Resorts to present the supplier
point of view on this important industry topic.  
"The lodging supplier has to strike a delicate balance now between
using resources for direct bookings and intermediaries as the
intermediaries are increasingly becoming a critical element of our
business," said Milne. "The trick is to stay ahead of consumer habits
and trends, while maximizing the most cost effective distribution
channels. I look forward to discussing this at length during this
year's Mountain Travel Symposium." 
Presented during General Session III, "Connecting Travelers and
Suppliers: Disruption or Status Quo?" will also feature commentary
from intermediary companies including Escapes North America at
LivingSocial, Interhome, Ski.com and Liftopia. The founder of
PhoCusWright is expected to speak separately about "the need for
companies to constantly evaluate their sales, marketing and
distribution strategies."  
The 38th annual conference runs this year from April 7 - 13, 2013 in
Snowmass, Colo. With over 1,000 participants expected to attend, MTS
is the single largest and longest-running annual gathering of
mountain travel professionals in North America, according to its
website. It features two days of general sessions and workshops;
three separate trade shows; and individual breakout sessions.
