ARDA West Meeting Draws Record Crowd

Thanks to members from such far-flung locales as Hawaii and Montana, we recently hosted one of our highest attended ARDA West Regional Meetings. More than 125 industry professionals traveled to San Diego, California, for the October 4-5 meeting, which was held at the beautiful Sheraton San Diego Hotel and Marina property.
This year’s program featured interactive and engaging sessions, offering attendees many takeaways and opportunities to network with others.
One of the thematic focal points was “the employee”—from employee management to employee relations, attendees participated in discussions and heard from industry executives about how to get the most out of your employees.
The industry-specific programming focused on current key issues in the vacation ownership industry and more importantly, what can be done to fix them. Speakers shared what is working at their resorts to keep their owners engaged, and what resorts have done to keep costs down without decreasing the value.
Other events held during the meeting also broke past records. The regional Supplier Certification Seminar had the highest ever regional attendance records, and the 90-minute Opening Reception and Product Showcase featured 20 leading timeshare industry suppliers.
