LAS VEGAS, Feb. 12, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- In what could be one of the largest vacation giveaways, Diamond Resorts International®, a global leader in the hospitality and vacation ownership industries, today announced its Vacations of a Lifetime™ Sweepstakes awarding prizes potentially totaling $1.8 million. Dozens of entrants will win resort stays during the sweepstakes, and seven grand prize winners will each have the opportunity to win from a one-week stay up to 80 weeks of accommodations over a 20 year period at any Diamond Resorts International® property throughout the world. Consumers can enter from now through July 22, 2014, at diamondresorts.com. The first monthly prize drawing is February 23, 2014.
"We are giving away a multitude of opportunities to experience the world, and it couldn't come at a better time," said David Palmer, President and CEO of Diamond Resorts International®. "Our recent study conducted by Nielsen Research confirmed what we already suspected: regular vacations reduce stress, improve health, relationships and careers, and ultimately, are critical to overall happiness. Simply put – taking vacations is good for you. We want people to think about how important it is to make a commitment to taking great vacations."
"We know that vacations are important, and we have an incredible sense of responsibility to provide our members, owners and guests with meaningful, relaxing and memorable vacation experiences. This sweepstakes was named and designed around our core mission, creating Vacations of a Lifetime™," continued Palmer.
Each month for six months, starting on February 23, 2014, Diamond Resorts International® will randomly select four winners to win a one-week stay for four people at one of the company's properties. All non-winning entries will be rolled over and included in the following month's drawing. And at the end of the sweepstakes, the company will choose seven grand prize winners at random.
