Omni Hotels & Resorts Becomes First Brand to Launch Seamless Instant Booking Experience for Group Rooms and Meeting Space
Groups360 empowers event organizers to book rooms and space in a single transaction on GroupSync™
DALLAS, TX (April 13, 2022) – Omni Hotels & Resorts and Groups360 today announced the launch of GroupSync™, an online booking engine with instant booking capabilities. Instant booking empowers anyone organizing a meeting, or event, to book both group guest rooms and event spaces online. This functionality is now available at the Omni Frisco Hotel (Frisco, TX), and soon across Omni’s more than 50 properties in the U.S., Canada, and Mexico.
Groups360 and the GroupSync platform allows organizers to instantly book online by exposing real-time availability for both hotel rooms and meeting space, streamlining group travel for organizers, attendees, and hotels alike. The GroupSync platform, the company’s proprietary bookings marketplace, delivers greater efficiency for travel organizers and hoteliers. Travel organizers have access to enhanced global search capabilities, hotel group inventory and rates, and a choice of purchasing methods, via instant booking, or a simplified proposal process through the platform.
“We take great pride in being leaders and innovators in the meetings and events industry, so we were eager to explore the opportunity to adopt paradigm-shifting technology destined to change the way hotels have been booking groups,” said Peter Palli, chief commercial officer at Omni Hotels & Resorts. “This technology provides an on-demand booking option for planners who seek to book a small room block and meeting space with ease and confidence. Our goal is to always provide an unforgettable experience, and our partnership with Groups360 allows us to continue to focus on what matters most to our customers, as we further elevate our brand’s offerings for this vital business demographic.”
“Omni is the first brand to offer instant booking for group guest rooms and event spaces in a single online transaction through the GroupSync platform. Now, meeting planners and other event organizers can access real-time availability and group rates to book guest rooms, meeting space or both, food and beverage, and audio-visual equipment,” said Kemp Gallineau, CEO, Groups360. “Omni’s innovation will significantly benefit its staff and their customers by automating group bookings, allowing more time to focus on those things that create a great experience.”
Meeting planners and event organizers can visit groups360.com to access the GroupSync platform at no cost.
