Earlier this month we were in the highly privileged position of Elite Dynamics being the headline sponsor at the 16th annual Hoseasons Owners’ Conference, held at the stunning Celtic Manor Resort in Newport, Wales. There was a real buzz of excitement around the prestigious event as it was the first one to be held after a three-year Covid-enforced hiatus. This was also our first experience of being headline sponsor at such a prestigious industry event, so we definitely pulled out all the stops. We had a shiny new modular stand designed to befit our headline sponsor status and over the course of the two days, we welcomed lots of potential customers with cake to celebrate our 7th birthday.
Giving the holiday park industry a glimpse of our technological roadmap
Since founding Elite Dynamics in 2015, we’ve made no secret of how much we all love the holiday park industry and how most of our team have backgrounds in, or experience of, holiday parks. So, for us to be centre stage at an event attended by so many of our customers (and soon-to-be customers!), was a real highlight. We joined more than 50 other industry exhibitors and our MD, Jamaine Campbell, was a key speaker, presenting in front of a packed room of industry peers. He told the assembled audience of holiday park operators, manufacturers, and marina operators about Elite Dynamics’ digital first strategy and outlined our future roadmap of more integration with Microsoft, including exciting developments of Power Apps, which are already transforming our customers’ operations.
The Conference was also the perfect opportunity to talk to new and old faces about EliteMarinas, the only advanced marina management solution available on the market today. We’re pleased that, through our market leading IT business solutions, we’re working to bring every strand of the holiday park industry together and marinas is another string to our bow.
So proud of our award-winning Elite Dynamics customers
The two-day event culminated in the Hoseasons gala dinner and Diamond Award Ceremony, which we knew was due to be hosted by a surprise celebrity. Despite a wide range of guesses, the team were very pleasantly surprised and highly entertained by special guest host, comedian and TV presenter, Michael McIntyre. However, we were even more blown away with the fact that almost half of the park operator Hoseasons Diamond and Best in Britain Award Winners use EliteParks as their booking platform. We are so proud to support them with our IT business solutions and we look forward to making connections with many more of the park operators, holiday marinas, and manufacturers behind them in the coming months.
Forging meaningful partnerships to benefit our customers
Hoseasons has been a key partner of Elite Dynamics for the last six of our seven years of revolutionising the holiday park industry and our values are closely aligned. They’re one of the UK’s leading self-catering accommodation specialists, accommodating more than 1.8 million holidaymakers. So together we’ve both worked hard to make sure our solutions seamlessly integrate with their technology, to benefit both parties’ owners and customers. One of the first questions we’re often asked by prospective customers is whether our solutions integrate with Hoseasons. Holiday park and marina operators don’t want to (and shouldn’t have to!) spend time updating availability and pricing across multiple platforms. With EliteParks, availability is automatically shared in real time and dynamic pricing implemented.
We look forward to many more years of partnering with Hoseasons, as nicely summed up by Luke Hansford, their Vice President Business Development UK. He said: “Elite Dynamics are a trusted partner of Hoseasons, supplying industry leading technology to a number of our holiday park and lodge operators, which seamlessly aligns with the infrastructure, in-house technology and services we provide as a business.
“Their innovative technology provides operators with modern and reliable holiday home and park industry solutions, which have transformed the experience of all types of users by helping enhance the overall customer journey, improve reporting efficiency, as well as ensuring onsite operations run smoothly.
“The unrivalled experience throughout the team gives operators the added reassurance that their business needs are in safe hands, and we were immensely proud to have Elite Dynamics as our headline sponsor for our Hoseasons Owner Conference 2022.”
Roll on 2023!
