Industry Professionals to Share How They Are “Connecting for Results”
at Newmarket International’s 4th Annual User Conference
Leading company representatives to discuss how connecting different islands of data
and sister properties results in streamlined operations and increased revenues 

Portsmouth, NH - March 16, 2007 —  Newmarket International, Inc., the leader in sales and catering solutions for the hospitality industry, today announced that several of its customers will participate in a panel session at the 4th annual NewmarketPLUS 2007 User Conference. The panel discussion will highlight how these companies are using Newmarket’s® solutions to connect different departments, information and sister properties. This year’s conference is taking place at the Royal Pacific Resort at Universal Orlando®, A Loews Hotel, from March 18-21, 2007. 

Panel participants include Aileen Haier, Manager, Global Sales Automation at Jumeirah, Lori Losasso, Vice President at Destination Hotels & Resorts, and Barbara Pang, Vice President - Marketing at Shangri-La Hotels & Resorts. Senior Strategist John Bray of PhocusWright, an independent travel, tourism and hospitality research firm, will moderate the discussion. The session will focus on how these leading hospitality providers are connecting their islands of knowledge, information and technology to streamline operations and improve performance. The panel will build the business case for the integration of processes and technology and attendees will learn from the panel’s unique perspectives on the benefits of connecting, whether it’s across operational lines, among sister properties, or between separate islands of data.  As part of this panel, there will be a discussion around MeetingBrokerSM, Newmarket’s web-based information service that distributes and manages leads from multiple business channels, and how this service allows hospitality companies worldwide to book more business by streamlining the lead management process. 

“We all understand the importance of connecting different systems and departments across our business, but organizations often struggle with the inherent complexity of the required initiatives,” said Sean O’Neill, CEO, Newmarket International, Inc. “Attendees will hear first hand from these leading, innovative companies on how they are using Newmarket’s technology to connect their enterprises, and how they are benefiting from the results.”
