       JDB FINE HOTELS & RESORTS ANNUAL SEMINAR PROGRAM
                          GROWS BY 55%

Tradeshow for Travel Agents Considered Largest Italian Road Show in the U.S.

JDB Fine Hotels & Resorts (JDB) Annual Seminar Program, held for two weeks
beginning January 9, 2006, grew by 55% this year making it the largest Italian hotel
road show in the United States. The traveling tradeshow introduced 62 Italian hoteliers
to more then 1,200 of the industry’s top travel agents in key markets throughout the
United States, including San Francisco, Los Angeles, Chicago, Boca Raton, Atlanta, and
Short Hills (N.J.). “JDB’s 2006 Seminars were the most successful in the 25 years I have
been conducting educational seminars for travel agents in terms of both hotelier and
travel agent participation. JDB’s fabulous new Hotel Directory might also have been a
factor!” boasts JDB President and Founder, Judith Davis Baer.

Each Seminar event opened with a specially tailored presentation given by Judith Baer
and was followed by a tradeshow where travel professionals were able to meet face-to-
face with JDB member property representatives. In addition to Italian members,
representatives from the Hotel Vernet in Paris, Windjammer Landing Villa Resort in St.
Lucia, Half Moon in Jamaica, and the Carl Gustaf in St. Barthelemy were also present.
JDB’s Florence-based ground operator, Laura Newman, introduced JDB’s Italian tour
product at Seminar events on the West Coast.

JDB’s 2006 Hotel Directory, which is published every two years, was launched at the
start of the Annual Seminar Program in San Francisco. The Directory includes detailed
member property descriptions, maps, and regional and cultural information for JDB’s
destinations: Italy, Ireland, France, Mexico, the Caribbean, and for the first time, Spain.
In addition to the Annual Seminar Program each January, JDB sponsors regional
Seminars throughout the year. For a listing of upcoming regional Seminars visit
