Everything to Love About ARDA World 2015!

The Marriott World Center's pristine course was the
perfect kick-off for ARDA World 2015!
No one has ever said the Timeshare Industry is boring, and this year's events at ARDA World continue to prove it definitely isn't! And, no one has ever said the industry wasn't charitable, which it is. The industry kicked off its premier annual event, ARDA World 2015, by exhibiting both attributes. 

Charity Poker Event

Track Results helped to start the conference off right by hosting the Second Annual Poker Night on Saturday at the Marriott World Center in Orlando. The event raised $50,000 for the benefit of Send Me on Vacation, an organization that provides women with breast cancer once-in-a-lifetime trips with their loved ones. For some women these trips provide a chance to rejuvenate after months of battling the illness, for others, it may be the last chance they have to travel with their families. The poker tournament is a way for ARDA World attendees to enjoy a night playing poker, blackjack, or roulette while raising money to send more women on these life-changing trips.

AIF Golf Tournament

The ARDA International Foundation (AIF) led the way on Sunday, with its 14th Annual AIF Open Golf Tournament. Participants had a challenging but enjoyable time on the beautifully landscaped course at the Marriott World Center's Hawk's Landing Golf Club. AIF is the entity of ARDA that fulfills the industry’s research and education needs, including identifying consistent and ongoing benchmarks, expanding research, analyzing technological changes and impacts, and enhancing the public’s knowledge of the timeshare industry. AIF relies on fundraising events like the golf tournament to produce research, studies and educational programs that advance the industry.

ARDA World Kick-Off Party

Following the golf tournament Sunday was the ARDA World 2015 Kick-Off Party. The event featured plenty of food, drink and even outdoor games. During the Kick-Off Party, ARDA-WIN Advantage, one of the sponsors of the event, presented its WINspiration Award to Lani Kane Hanan, EVP Marriott Vacations Worldwide. ARDA-WIN advantage is a women-centric group that focuses on networking, mentoring and diversity/inclusion within the vacation industry. The WINspiration Award is given to the member that has shown excellence in philanthropic service, leadership, and in contributions and support made to WIN. 

ARDA World continues until Friday with educational sessions, committee meetings, an Awards Gala Dinner and the closing Breakfast of Champions featuring two-time NHL Stanley Cup Champion, Bill Clement. More information can be found directly on ARDA's website!
