Krisam Group Announces Economic Stimulus Plan for Meeting Planners
Airfare Credits Available for Meetings Booked at Some of
Krisam’s Finest Member Hotels & Resorts

Washington, DC – March 20, 2008 –In an era of airline surcharges and rising prices for just about everything, Krisam Group, the pioneering hotel membership company for independent and unique hotels and resorts worldwide, announced an Economic Stimulus Plan for meeting planners who book new business at participating Krisam hotels and resorts between March 15 - May 15, 2008. 

Planners receive a $30 airfare credit for every flight booked for a meeting held at  participating Krisam member hotels and resorts. Restrictions apply, and the complete list of participating properties is contained at the end of this press release. 

Under the plan, business must be generated and contracted between March 15 - May 15, 2008, for meetings held before December 31, 2008. Blackout dates may apply, and a two-night minimum stay is required. Only new business for 2008 is eligible, and one flight credit per meeting attendee is permitted, based on single occupancy.  If the meeting qualifies, the credit will be applied to the Master hotel bill upon completion of the meeting and all that is required is a copy of a flight manifest.

Planners who are interested in participating in this program should contact their local Krisam sales representative. A list of Krisam Group office locations can be found at
