									                      ALHI Debuts “Art of Distinction”
                 Hotel & Resort Meeting Sourcing Guide

Associated Luxury Hotels International (ALHI) has just published its impressive new
“2009-2010 ALHI National Sales Guide To Meeting Facilities,” which is the ultimate
publication from which to choose resorts and hotels of distinction that are specifically
designed and operated for important meetings, conventions, incentive/recognition
programs, and exhibitions. Since selecting the appropriate venue for a program’s
objectives is a planner’s “Art,” and ALHI’s portfolio is uniquely designed with
“Distinctive” ME&I options, the comprehensive 158-page annual directory is themed as
the “Art of Distinction,” featuring more than 125 of ALHI’s Four- and Five-Diamond
quality hotels and resorts worldwide.

Featuring helpful photos, with easy-to-find “at a glance” descriptions and facts about
each property, the guide presents ALHI’s distinctive portfolio of extraordinary meeting
and incentive resorts, remarkable city hotels, exclusive smaller hotels, island destinations,
golf resorts, historic and landmark properties, and resorts with spas -- properties in
America and around the world. ALHI’s portfolio now boasts more than 90,000 rooms
and suites, and over 9 million square feet of meeting space, providing an array of
options and destinations for planners.

                                 Planners Value Resource
“The guide is a proven valuable resource for planners of large and small meetings,
incentive/recognition programs, conventions, and exhibitions,” said David Gabri,
president and CEO of ALHI. “It is used extensively to discuss possibilities and narrow
options for programs of all types. Planners tell us they love the table-top format which
provides an overview of each of our exceptional member hotels and resorts, as well as
‘quick on the facts’ detailed information about their accommodations, meeting spaces and
facilities, unique attributes and access.”

“This convenient information sourcebook, combined with the expertise of our helpful
ALHI National Sales team, helps planners identify potential and often ideal solutions for
their specific programs,” said Gabri. “It provides a comprehensive base of knowledge to
help the planner review options for their next meeting, convention or incentive/
recognition program. Our National Sales team is experienced in elaborating with great
detail and provides insight on the portfolio of selected properties of interest. Once we
narrow the options with planners, we also use our website to provide
planners incremental details, photos, videos, destination information, and other vital
information to advance ideas internally and externally. The combination has become very
popular with planners we serve.”

Meeting professionals, association executives, and incentive specialists have utilized
ALHI’s National Sales services for nearly 25 years, with reliable one-call professional
sales assistance and access to their distinctive hotels and resorts for meetings and
incentive/recognition programs ranging from 10 to more than 5,000 rooms. There is no
cost to planners’ organizations to utilize the National Sales services of ALHI, as its
members’ dues fund the national sales organization to serve planners in their regions.

“This very handy guide really is a ‘must’ for planners who seek quality, imaginative,
impeccable, and motivating venues for their programs, which can often provide the very
best return on investment (ROI),” added Gabri. ”So whether you’re seeking distinctive
resort, city, entertainment, international, and/or incentive solutions, ALHI has it, and this
new ALHI Guide will be an invaluable resource.”
