MEETING PACKAGE: ALHI Announces 2009 'Summer Sale'

Although it's winter that's on its way, Associated Luxury Hotels International (ALHI) has announced a summer sale for 2009 meetings. Available at nearly 50 participating ALHI member hotels during select dates between June 1 and Sept. 10, 2009, the "ALHI Summer Sale" program provides planners with a 10 percent credit on their peak night room revenue.

"The 'ALHI Summer Sale' and the 10 percent credit is a fantastic way to put or keep that extra 'WOW' into your program," said Associated Luxury Hotels President and CEO David Gabri. "And it is a great way for us to [help] corporations and associations stretch their program's dollars in 2009, while still providing the quality of facilities and services their attendees have come to expect."

In order to participate in the "ALHI Summer Sale" program, planners must book their meetings before Dec. 31, 2008, and actualize them during summer 2009. A minimum of three nights and 35 peak-night rooms is required and a maximum credit of $10,000 applies, regardless of program size.
