THE RITZ-CARLTON HOTEL COMPANY, L.L.C. INTRODUCES NEW “MEETINGS WITHIN REACH” PACKAGE OFFERING SPECIAL VALUE THROUGH THE END OF 2009

CHEVY CHASE, Md. – July 20, 2009 – The Ritz-Carlton Hotel Company, L.L.C. is reaching out to corporate executives, meeting planners, and conference attendees in an effort to encourage the scheduling of meetings from educational seminars, incentive trips, customer appreciation events to annual retreats. With a message that “It’s Not Extravagant, If It Produces Results”, the award-winning hotel company is highlighting the added value proposition of selecting a

Ritz-Carlton hotel or resort, even during the current challenging economic environment.

“Meetings Within Reach” includes the following value-added components for groups booking ten or more nights at Ritz-Carlton hotels all over the world:

  • Daily continental breakfast
  • General session meeting room
  • High speed internet access in one meeting room
  • 20 per cent savings on audio visual needs
  • Select suite upgrades
  • Meetings must be booked by September 30 and held by December 31, 2009

Offering an attractive range of rates (starting from $159 to $229 subject to availability and certain restrictions), as well as outstanding service and surroundings, which make choosing The Ritz-Carlton a sound business decision, the company is targeting the third and fourth quarters of 2009 to encourage new meetings, as well as the rebooking of events cancelled in the wake of the recession. “As companies look ahead, we are encouraging organizations to realize the value of a truly results-oriented meeting,” said Bruce Himelstein, corporate senior vice president, sales and marketing. “The Ritz-Carlton uniquely creates environments that maximize productivity and efficiency of meetings, and pride in your employees; our efficiency and excellence in planning and execution are second to none,” Himelstein explained.

To book your meeting, please visit The Ritz-Carlton website at: www.ritzcarlton.com/meetings.
