ARDA World Annual Convention is Going Hollywood
Over 3,000 From Timeshare Industry Meet to Network, Learn, and Share Best Practices
This year, the annual American Resort Development Association (ARDA) Convention moves from its bi-annual location in Orlando to the beachside resort destination of Hollywood, Florida. The Westin Diplomat Resort and Spa will host the convention from April 7-11, and over 3,000 attendees are expected from around the globe.
ARDA World Convention is the premier opportunity for industry leaders to network, share insights, and discuss issues on a global basis with attendees from varying backgrounds and markets. The convention also provides prominent exposure for sponsors, exhibitors, and attendees among a diverse collection of over 3,000 industry players.
"Along with our terrific new location, we have also shifted the schedule to better accommodate the attendees," says Howard Nusbaum, president and CEO of ARDA. "Monday is Key Constituent Day for our most involved members, and we are featuring several new receptions and networking events."
This year's keynote speaker is Don Tapscott, a best-selling author and speaker. He will share his insights on the strategic value and impact of information technology on the timeshare industry. Popular convention sessions throughout the week include educational discussions on innovations in the industry, such as the new fee-for-service model, hot industry topics such as aging resorts, and best practice sessions on subjects from marketing to technology.
Opportunities are still available for new and member companies to introduce themselves to the vital industry of timesharing.
