The ARDA World Convention is held in different cities in the USA each year, and hosts thousands of timeshare industry professionals. This year’s choice of host cities for the conference, New Orleans, LA – The Big Easy – offered a vibrant culture and great atmosphere, making it truly the perfect gathering spot complimenting both the conference and the charity poker tournament.

This charity tournament has become a part of ARDA, and something that attendees really look forward to each year.
