Omni Hotels Drops Attrition Fees for
New Group Business in 2009

IRVING, Texas, February 6, 2009 - Effective today, Omni Hotels will offer its new ZERO Attrition program to meeting professionals and event clientele across the brand. This value-driven program waives the attrition fees for new contracts booked and consumed in 2009. The luxury hotel brand developed the ZERO Attrition program in response to the growing need in the meetings marketplace for innovative solutions which can effectively address today's economic conditions.

"In today's economic climate, many organizations are uncertain of their meeting attendance, driving Omni to develop a program with more flexibility than the industry norm. This is intended to help customers overcome concerns regarding their group block commitment," said Tom Faust, vice president of sales for Omni Hotels. "By offering this alternative and working closely with our clients on establishing an appropriate and achievable room block, we alleviate their concerns about attrition fees. We believe this will be a practical and welcome solution to meeting planners."

New meetings, with up to 150 peak room nights, must be booked by June 30, 2009 and take place within the calendar year. In addition, there is a mutual block review at 90, 60 and 30 days prior to arrival. Other details, terms and conditions are available at or by calling 1-800-THE-OMNI.
