Are You Ready for Convention? 

 2015 ARDA World 

Peter Roth, VP Marketing and Communications, ARDA  

This year’s ARDA World Convention and Exposition is shaping up to be a great mix of education, networking and fun. Back in Orlando for the first time in four years, our team is excited about what’s in store!

This year’s theme is “Timeshare in Real Time” and will focus on the expectation of immediacy that today’s owner has—and how our industry can leverage that in sales, service and loyalty.  

There will be five days of meetings, educational sessions and exhibitions—giving attendees the chance to network with their peers and bring back innovative ideas to their teams. This year’s Convention features an impressive line-up of speakers and entertainers including Jay Baer, author of the New York Times bestselling book, Youtility, as the keynote opener. 

Be sure to register for the 14th Annual AIF Open Golf Tournament, and pack your formal attire for the annual Awards Gala recognizing outstanding work in our industry (don’t forget to order your tickets for the ARDA Awards Gala here). The Breakfast of Champions keynote speaker is Bill Clement, two-time NHL Stanley Cup Champion and television broadcaster. 

New this year is a “Digital Zone” in the center of the exhibition floor, where attendees can get involved in social media discussions, ask questions of the speakers and take photos in our photo booth. Be sure to stop by!

Registration for ARDA World is still open, and sponsorships are still available.  For more information about the 2015 ARDA World Convention, visit the ARDA World website.

We hope to see you April 12-16, 2015, at the Orlando World Center Marriott in Orlando, Florida!

 

What Does International Travel Mean for Vacation Ownership?

What Does International Travel Mean for Vacation Ownership? 

 2014 Economic Impact.
 

Vacations and travel is our business. It was a topic of an Ipsos study at the recent Shared Ownership Investment Conference in Miami last October, it will be the basis for many educational sessions at ARDA World 2015 in Orlando on April 12-16, and it continues to drive developers and resort operators around the globe to conduct research on “why we travel.” 

According to the Ipsos/TripAdvisor study “TripBarometer 2015: Psychology of Travel Global Report” (September 2014), there are three compelling motivators for why people travel:

  1. Enhancing perspectives - travelers want to have unique and interesting experiences on vacation.
  2. Liberation – the need to enjoy life to the fullest, to let go and feel carefree.
  3. Immersion – diving into local culture and meeting new people and creating memories.

From research to personal experience to new vacation products and services, these are important discussions happening at all levels within the hospitality industry. Join the conversation and the group of influencers driving the future of vacation ownership into the future at ARDA World 2015
