Palace Vacation Club, Malaysia, Joins the RCI Network of Affiliated Resorts

KUALA LUMPUR, July 8 /PRNewswire-Asia-AsiaNet/ --

    RCI, the global leader in vacation exchange, and Palace Vacation Club, one of Asia's most innovative brands in

the vacation ownership industry, today announced a new multi-year affiliation. The agreement makes RCI the

exclusive third-party exchange provider for Palace Vacation Club and allows subscribing members access to a

broad array of exciting vacation opportunities.

exchange provider," said Geoff Ballotti, president and CEO, Group RCI, parent company of RCI. "We look forward

sales and marketing programs available in the industry today."

    This new affiliation adds two beautiful vacation destinations, Country Villas and Palace of the Golden Horses, to

is the world's largest timeshare and vacation exchange company, and gaining access to their 3.8 million leisure-

and global marketing infrastructure aligns well with Palace Vacation Club's strategic growth plan. This relationship

will provide our member families with the best and most diverse vacation experiences possible beyond our

signature Palace Vacation Club resorts."
