              Start Saving on Business Travel With Corporate Lodging Consultants
                     Company Lodging Solutions Get Spotlight at GlobalShop 2010 in Las Vegas

Wichita, Kansas (Feb. 24, 2010) Travel savings that start in Vegas – don’t have to stay in Vegas. That’s
what Corporate Lodging Consultants (CLC) offers as it brings its workforce travel solutions to retailers and
brand managers at GlobalShop 2010 in Las Vegas March 10-12.

CLC provides savings and service to thousands of companies whose employees travel for business
through its custom lodging solutions and savings card.

 “Companies that are losing bids for new business may find it’s because their competitors are paying 20
to 30 percent less for their hotel rooms,” says Gary Shaw, CLC’s Executive Vice President of Sales.
“Their hotel costs are lower because they are working with Corporate Lodging Consultants to create
custom solutions for their business lodging needs.”

In addition to corporate lodging discounts on room rates at thousands of hotels, CLC clients enjoy
operational benefits such as direct billing, improved tracking and reporting, and 24-hour support for
travelers on the road.

“Acosta’s relationship with CLC has been extremely positive,” says Brad Smith, Executive Vice President
of Retail Operations for Acosta Sales & Marketing. “The billing is simple for our accounting department in
that we receive one consolidated statement for all of our travelers, and our field teams find the reservation
process to be simple with many lodging options. As for cost savings, that’s been the greatest benefit. Our
average nightly costs are down over 20% due to the negotiating power that CLC has.”

Because CLC’s services extend to a wide variety of companies with construction crews, delivery drivers
and field service teams, CLC also will attend the 2010 NARMS (National Association for Retail Marketing
Services) Annual Conference April 17-20 in Tampa, Fla. CLC also will be at the Electric Power
