Outstanding Performance in the Resort & Vacation Industry

ARDA Awards

The American Resort Development Association (ARDA) emerged on the scene 40 years ago as an advocate of the resort development and vacation ownership industry by supporting its growth through legislative, public relations and education programs, and ethical compliance. Members build mutually beneficial professional relationships with industry leaders and identify their competitive advantage.

ARDA established its ARDY awards program to honor resorts that achieve outstanding performance in various areas of development, such as resort operations, design, advertising, sales, and employment practices. Their aim is to honor those whose achievements rise above industry standards, inspiring them to reach new heights.
