The Partnership Conference 2017 in Portugal took place on April 26th in Albufeira, and was sensational! We were pleased to have so many businesses attend from the vacation rental sector, who actively participated and gave a real energy to the event. What was key for us was the idea of collaboration and learning from the leading vacation rental portals in addition to experts from other agencies, and Avantio.

The aim of this demonstration was to show some of the functionalities of the Avantio software and present some and top tips, designed especially to help our clients improve their businesses through time and cost savings.
Portals gave presentations about the markets that they cover and how to use their tools to increase vacation rental bookings. All the presentations were very participatory and received positive feedback from the agencies. In addition, we ran successful networking sessions during breaks among portals and agencies, so they could discuss business, new ideas and developments of the sector.

Eduardo Miranda, President of the Portuguese association of local properties (ALEP), was with us and delighted us with his presentation regarding legislation and the future of the rental property sector in Portugal. This was a moment of great interest for all of our attendees.
We were very pleased to have two of Avantio’s clients share their impressions and experiences about Avantio. We enjoyed hearing about our strong points from their perspective showing their satisfaction with our company and also, telling us what could be improved from a constructive vision.
We offered a raffle of our new web Enterprise with new designs to all the companies that were attending our event and finally the winner was Pedro Carvalho, representing My Choice Algarve.
We closed this event with a cocktail where companies shared their ideas and questions with other industry experts, portals and the Avantio team.
