Awards and Applause

Well, well VRS... did it again and snatched almost all of the big and most coveted titles at the prestigious 29th Annual RCI OSCAS.

The RCI OSCAS celebrate the leading resorts and frontrunners in the timeshare industry and once again VRS featured as one of the stars in the big categories – which is a massive achievement! The popular saying is that success is so often the sum of small efforts repeated day-in and day-out and each of the On-site, Off-site and VRS Management Team's dedication, perseverance and pursuit of excellence, every single day, has led to these amazing accolades.

As is the case with every year, it is important that whatever we do, we do it with passion and to the best of our abilities, or not at all.

Thanks must go to all the hard working leaders and individuals that serve and carry out their duties with passion and pursue excellence in all that they do. Special thanks must go to Marjorie Forssman (VRS Director), NORMS (Off-Site Managers), Resort Managers and Resort Teams; as well as every single VRS Head Office Staff Member!

It is through your teamwork, passion, doing every task with excellence and absolute commitment that you have had such tremendous success.
