					Diamond Resorts International® Confirms Commitment to Sustainability and
Joins The International Tourism Partnership
Global hospitality and vacation ownership company recognizes its social responsibility and takes
step forward in collaborating on finding practical solutions to the challenges of sustainable
development
Las Vegas, NV (Vocus) May 29, 2010 -- DIAMOND RESORTS INTERNATIONAL® (DRI), a global leader in
the hospitality and vacation ownership industries, has today announced its decision to join the International
Tourism Partnership (ITP) which will place DRI alongside other global leaders in the hospitality sector who share
the same commitment to collaborating on finding practical solutions to the challenges of sustainable development.



 The International Tourism Partnership, founded in 1992 and part of the International Business Leaders Forum, is
a unique organization that brings together industry leaders to demonstrate in a practical way that environmental
and social responsibility make good business sense. According to Stephen J. Cloobeck, Chairman and Chief
Executive Officer, Diamond Resorts International®, “Our decision to join the International Tourism Partnership
demonstrates our acknowledgement of the important position Diamond shares in the hospitality industry and how
vital our environmental leadership is in our global operations as we embrace all aspects of sustainability,
preservation and social responsibility. We greatly value the opportunity to have the support of the International
Tourism Partnership to establish a mutually beneficial relationship toward our sustainability goals."

 The International Tourism Partnership brings together leading corporate partners in the hospitality and tourism
industry to demonstrate that environmental and social responsibility makes good business sense. Its aim is to
encourage the hospitality industry to improve its impact on both environment and society by showcasing
examples of leadership, working in partnership with other sectors, companies and agendas, and providing
practical products, projects and solutions that focus on both short term outcomes and long term goals. Stephen
Farrant, Director of ITP commented, “The issue of moving toward greater sustainability remains a huge challenge
but also a great opportunity for the sector. The more enlightened businesses are already taking meaningful action
on improving their environmental and social impacts, and the International Tourism Partnership has a vital role to
play in championing and enabling this. We are delighted to welcome Diamond Resorts International® to the
group and very much look forward to working with a global partner with a footprint as large as that of DRI’s.”

 The members of ITP represent some of the largest travel and tourism companies in the world, comprising over
11,100 hotel properties and 1.8 million rooms. They understand that only through collective, industry-wide action
at local, destination and country levels can real progress be made towards a more sustainable hotel, travel and
