Worldwide exchange company, DAE, has been nominated as a finalist in the upcoming 2014 ARDA Awards to be held in Las Vegas in April.
DAE will contend four categories in the prestigious awards, including:
Best Print Newsletter for ‘Discover Your World’;
Best Electronic Format Newsletter for ‘daeNEWS’;
Best Specialty Marketing Piece for DAE’s “Wanna Swap” Campaign; and
Best Sales Center Materials for DAE USA’s Marketing Materials Package
DAE’s Vice President of North America, Fermin Cruz, said it was a strong indication that DAE was being recognized as a leading player in the field.
“DAE is committed to providing an exceptionally high level of customer service to our members and industry partners,” said Mr Cruz. “By providing the best sales and marketing tools to our customers, we are ensuring we deliver the most up to date, relevant products and services to make their exchange experience better than ever.
“We look forward to the being there with our industry colleagues for the announcement of the winners at the Awards Gala in Las Vegas on April 9.”
CEO Francis Taylor added the company would be hosting its annual DAE Global Conference to coincide with the ARDA Awards, with representatives from each of the 12 global DAE offices coming together for a two-day strategy meeting.
“This is a follow on from our last annual DAE Conference in London, and we look forward to another successful meeting of the global minds working together to make DAE the very best exchange company,” said Mr Taylor.
The ARDA Award nominations follow an already stellar year for the world’s largest independently owned vacation exchange provider, taking home the title of Best Overall Company in the Perspective Magazine Awards at the 2014 GNEX Conference in February.
DAE also won the industry’s Best Customer Service for four years running and this year was recognized for having the Best Consumer Product with its free worldwide exchange membership.
