ARDA’S largest and most inspirational annual event, ARDA World 2019, is April 7-11 in Orlando, Florida. Members of the resort community come together to be inspired and educated by the experts, mix and mingle with colleagues, and to honor the best in our industry. This major event is a “must attend” for all of us in the industry and here are my top 5 reasons why:
1 Comprehensive Information on Industry Trends and Innovations
Undoubtedly you’re doing your homework online by accessing industry webinars, scouting websites, and subscribing to professional industry information, but there is nothing quite like getting your information up close and personal.
ARDA World educational sessions feature the top industry experts and speakers to give us the latest industry news, generate industry excitement, and provide that personal connection. It’s the perfect opportunity to gain knowledge to improve and grow your business.
2 Opportunities to Network
With the many events and parties scheduled throughout ARDA World, you’ll find endless opportunities to network with your clients and peers. Some of them you may not see face-to-face very often and this is your chance to get to know them better and find out what they are doing, share your company’s innovations, discover what your clients are hearing from your competitors, and meet new prospects. The knowledge you gain will help to improve and grow your business.
3 Meet Industry Vendors and Suppliers
Just like you, vendors and suppliers are at conferences to make connections with new and existing clients and also educate them on their latest innovations.
Find out about the latest innovations at ARDA’s Lion’s Den where entrepreneurs pitch their ideas and then you vote on your favorite one. You may find a new idea for your business.
4 Honor Your Colleagues
ARDA’s Awards Gala is a highlight of the convention. Celebrate your colleagues and friends for their achievements. Being honored by your industry peers is one of the finest experiences. If it’s not you this time, there’s always next year.
5 Have Fun
Yes, you will want to do all of the above, but this convention is not just about work, it’s also about fun. There’s plenty of opportunities for socializing and getting to know your peers in a fun, relaxed atmosphere.
Along with the educational and networking aspects – the parties, happy hours, and entertainment inspire new friendships, respect for your industry, and renewed inspiration. See you there!
Lets get together!
