Omni Promises Zero Attrition for 2009 Events

Omni Hotels is waiving attrition fees for new contracts booked and consumed in 2009. The offer is for new bookings of up to 150 peak room nights and must be contracted by June 30. In addition, there is a mutual block review at 90, 60 and 30 days prior to arrival.

"In today's economic climate, many organizations are uncertain of their meeting attendance, driving Omni to develop a program with more flexibility than the industry norm. This is intended to help customers overcome concerns regarding their group block commitment," said Tom Faust, vice president of sales for Omni Hotels. "By offering this alternative and working closely with our clients on establishing an appropriate and achievable room block, we alleviate their concerns about attrition fees. We believe this will be a practical and welcome solution to meeting planners."
