MEETING PLANNERS NOW RECEIVE IMMEDIATE REWARDS
IRVING, TX (June 24, 2009) – Effective today, meeting planners can be rewarded with up to $500 towards a meetings/travel industry organization when booking a meeting at any Omni Hotel. As part of the brand’s Select Rewards program, planners can receive their reward upfront, immediately after the contract has been signed. The $500 can be used for MPI, NBTA, ASAE, PCMA or RCMA conferences, annual dues or as a foundation donation for any of these organizations.
On top of Omni’s innovative ZERO Attrition, RapidResponse and ReSELL programs launched earlier this year, the $500 reward for meetings was designed to address the ever-changing demands in the meetings marketplace. Omni will be providing the reward immediately after a signed contract is received, rather than have the planner wait for the meeting to be consumed and paid in full, enabling them to quickly sign a new contract and even be able to attend one of the upcoming conferences.
“Many planners are seeking creative solutions to how they participate in these vital organizations given their many resource demands,” said Tom Faust, vice president of sales for Omni Hotels “The ability to immediately take advantage of a rewards program is another way we partner with planners as well as the meetings and travel community.”
This special offer may not be used in conjunction with other offers or promotions and applies to new group bookings of $25,000 or greater in rooms revenue which are contracted and consumed in 2009. Omni Hotels’ Select Rewards program gives meeting planners a broad range of reward choices with the option of giving the reward to their organization or donating it to meeting attendees for raffles and prizes.
