The National Association of RV Parks and Campgrounds (ARVC) and tourism technology platform NewBook, have entered into an elite partnership. ARVC and NewBook will be working together to provide education on how to operate more efficiently and drive more business, along with extended benefits to ARVC members within the outdoor hospitality industry. NewBook is the first company to join ARVC’s Integrated Partnership Program.
Highlights of the partnership include NewBook being named ARVC’s exclusive technology sponsor of ARVCNews, a curriculum creator for and facilitator at the National School for RV Park and Campground Management, as well as numerous other opportunities to engage with the ARVC community throughout the year.
NewBook will return as a title sponsor at this year’s Outdoor Hospitality Conference and Expo. Members of the California-based NewBook team, including Shaye Illich, Geoff Illich and Jerome Staverosky, will also host the welcome reception on Monday, Nov. 4.
“We are thrilled to be partnering with NewBook on this Elite-level partnership,” said ARVC President and CEO Paul Bambei. “Our industry is changing and NewBook is getting out in front of things with innovative products and ideas, similar to the innovative strides ARVC is making with our education and other member benefits. Besides increasing NewBook’s engagement opportunities with the ARVC community, this partnership will create great opportunities for our members to grow their businesses as well.”
NewBook’s latest product offerings include NEW.B.I.E, an artificial intelligence chatbot and a centralized guest app, which allow guests to self-manage their stay and access information in real-time, on demand.
“I am really looking forward to working with the ARVC community to assist with increasing their revenue and streamlining their operations through the application of the latest technology and our expert knowledge,” said NewBook Founder and CEO Brad Illich. “I am confident our collaboration with ARVC will allow us to strengthen the outdoor hospitality industry and transform the way business owners see and use technology to stay competitive and provide amazing guest experiences.”
NewBook was also recently announced as an ARVC Member Benefit Provider, exclusively offering a $250 discount on all setup packages to ARVC members.
