Marriott welcomed over 80 Atca delegates with a groovy reception

Big hair, large sun glasses, bright colorful décor and groovy beats set the ambiance for Marriott’s 70s/80s welcome reception for the Annual Tourism Conference Aruba (ATCA). Over 80 ATCA delegates including the top wholesalers, travel agents and airline partners gathered annually in Aruba to network with the Aruba Hotels and Tourism Association (AHATA) members and Aruba’s Destination Management companies.

The Aruba Marriott brought back the 70s/80s theme with the groovy sounds of live band “the TRAMPS” and DJ Miniteca N.B. Participants danced the night away and enjoyed the delicious food. Marriott’s Director of Sales & Marketing Antoinette van den Berg and Hotel Manager Matt Knights welcomed the participants and thanked them for their continuous support in Aruba and the Marriott. The ATCA conference ends on Thursday April 11.
