Oh, what a night


The hotels were full, and the #AITO2018 events sold out, as one happy island enjoyed beach parties, pool parties and the biggest concert of the year, with international sensations J Balvin, Bad Bunny, Alex Sensation, Jeon and more.

We finally got to see Jeon on a state-of-the-art concert stage, and it was worth waiting for!

The Aruba Island Take Over Festival combined the best of the urban music scene with the electronic music scene, and kicked it off on Thursday November 1st with a welcome party, followed by the main concert night at The Harbor Arena Aruba, on Friday, with the main artists performing.

The 4-day festival experience was filled with great entertainment, with tourists arriving from many regional destinations.

The Marriott Aruba Resort & Stellaris Casino took advantage of the opportunity created by the concert and invited a great number of its customers for a Customer Appreciation VIP Event, on the main concert night. 

Customer were met in the Lobby of the Aruba Marriott Resort & Stellaris Casino for a cocktail reception with tantalizing food and beverage, followed by bus transportation to the Aruba Harbor Arena for the concert, with return transportation secured.

They were comfortably seated on the VIP Gold Electric deck section, and were presented with premium cocktails during the show, in their own Marriott branded sippie cups.

The Sales, Marketing, Events, Banquet, Reservations and Revenue team thought about everything including extra tokens for the bars and food outlets, I spent mine on French fries with peanut sauce.

It was a night of extraordinary memories with a great variety of music genres played including reggaeton, rap, urban, deep house, techno and more. The stage received many accolades, it was indeed fantastic, and the light and sound beyond superb.

The first edition of the ‘Aruba Island Take Over’ (AITO) was presented by Aruba Tourism Authority (ATA), Aruba Trading Company (ATC), SETAR NV, Elite Empire Entertainment, EF, Aruba Marriott Resort, Top Drive, Hilton Aruba Caribbean, Hyatt Regency Aruba Resort, Fun Miles, Renaissance Aruba Resort and Super Car Rental. www.islandtakeover.com and www.facebook.com/islandtakeover.
