The American Resort Development Association (ARDA) is a group of resort developers in America. A special convention is held during the course of each calendar year for members of this association to meet with each other and discuss about the latest trends in the industry. This meeting helps the members of the association to understand more about the issues relating to the development of resorts all over the world.
It is the only event of its kind where professionals of the resort development industry from more than 20 countries over the world meet together along with their peers. There is a definite advantage to take part in this meeting, since it provides an opportunity to meet the experts of the industry and network with them too. Each and every business has its problems and it is the same with the resort developing industry too. The high profile speakers that attend this convention help members to overcome these problems.
Apart from that, those who attend the meeting also get a unique opportunity to learn about new services and products directly from the suppliers. During the course of the annual convention, the participants get the opportunity to meet and discuss with the other leaders of the industry, all under one roof. This show that is targeted towards the resort development industry permits industry suppliers to gain important leads and to gain recognition too.
At the same time property managers and developers get an opportunity to learn more about the latest in services and products. Held at the Venetian Resort Hotel Casino, the 2010 American Resort Development Annual Convention was a huge success, thanks to the strong attendance and an action packed agenda. One of the highlights of the show was the opening keynote which was delivered by Andy Sernovitz. ARDA is renamed for the famous parties and receptions during such conventions and 2010 was no different.
The 2010 American Resort Development Annual Convention was held from the 14th to the 18th of March, 2010. If members were enthralled by the RCI / AIF that was held on Sunday, they were overjoyed by the Monday night ICE Breaker Party which was held at LAVO. The convention concluded with a special event held to honor the leading professionals of the industry. The entertainment for the concluding session of the convention was provided by The Rhythmics.
