May 31, 2016 – ORLANDO, FLORIDA — July, 2016 will mark the 1-year Anniversary of the arrival of the Exploria Resorts brand in Branson, Missouri where a new sales center has been opened at the all-new Crown Club Inn Branson and a 44-unit all-suites vacation ownership resort, Greensview Branson, has opened less than a mile away.

The arrival of the Exploria Resorts brand in Branson, Missouri follows a 12 month extensive renovation of both Crown Club Inn Branson, formerly Branson Garden Inn and Greensview Branson, formerly Branson Inn & Suites.

“Branson, with its recent growth and exciting attractions and shows, has been on our radar for a long time” commented Juan Barillas, Executive Vice President, Exploria Resorts. “There were two primary motivators which drove our expansion into this great new destination” he continued. “The first: our existing presence and infrastructure in the state of Missouri made it a very logical step for potential synergies on many fronts. And the second: the demographics of our owner base has put Branson in high demand as a destination.”
