ARDA World 2016 – Beg, Borrow or Steal; BUT BE THERE!

Networking – See old friends, meet new people and forge relationships. There is no other event that will present you with so many opportunities to connect with leaders from hundreds of companies.

Stay Current – ARDA World is a great way to stay up on trends and best practices by visiting the exhibit hall, networking and meeting people and attending more than 40 educational sessions.

Get inspired – as one of ARDA World’s past attendees said, “There is no gathering in the world like ARDA. It is the one place that anybody who is a power player in the industry gets together once a year.”
