Groups360 Launches Direct Booking Solution for Groups With Omni Hotels & Resorts

GroupSync Engage Will Provide Real-Time Rates and Availability for Planners Seeking to Book Meetings at all Omni Hotels & Resorts Locations

USA, Brentwood, Tennessee. May 26, 2021

Groups360 today announced the launch of GroupSync Engage, the hospitality industry's first integrated direct booking solution for groups, at Omni Hotels & Resorts. Through GroupSync, anyone booking a meeting or event will be able to instantly book group rooms and meeting space online beginning with Omni's four managed Dallas-based hotels and extending to almost all properties in North America by end of summer of 2021.

GroupSync Engage is reshaping the hospitality industry in a way that makes booking groups simple, transparent and efficient for both hotels and meeting/event planners. Omni is the first major brand and noninvestor to sign up for the technology.

"We take great pride in being innovators in the meetings and events industry, so we jumped at the opportunity to adopt paradigm-shifting technology destined to change the way hotels have been booking groups," said Peter Strebel, president of Omni Hotels & Resorts. "We're dedicated to creating unforgettable experiences for meeting professionals and their guests, which is why all of our hotels have ample programming across outlets so that guests can enjoy their stay outside of the business setting, too. At an Omni, it's not just another convention or work trip."

Omni and GroupSync Engage offer real-time availability and group rates so that planners can book guest rooms, meeting space or both, as well as food and beverage, and audio-visual equipment - all completely online. Simplifying booking eases the planner's workload and frees up hotel staff and crucial resources at a critical time in the industry's recovery.

"Omni is an important brand to feature in the GroupSync direct booking marketplace, as these properties embody not only luxury experiences but also the highest standard of service for meeting planners," said Kemp Gallineau, CEO, Groups360. "As meeting specialists, Omni staff will greatly benefit from how GroupSync Engage automates group bookings for smaller meetings, giving them back invaluable time to focus on larger, more complex events."

Meeting planners can visit groups360.com to tour the technology and gain access to the GroupSync platform.

Omni Hotels & Resorts has more than 50 properties in the U.S., Canada and Mexico, with a combined total of approximately 21,000 rooms.

Architecture & Design: Wellness is Key


Like every other facet of hotel operations, architecture and design firms are adapting their work to ensure the safety and well-being of both guests and staff. New ways to bring Wellness into hotel spaces are being explored and these solutions are taking on many forms. Hotel designs are incorporating more open floor plans, open air spaces, high ceilings, outdoor areas and operable walls into their spaces. Guests no longer want to be packed into tight areas. More "biophilic" elements are also being incorporated, offering guests the sense of being outdoors. Another trend is the reimagining of guest rooms to support remote work capabilities. Some hotels are converting empty guest rooms into office spaces, complete with effective lighting and suitable backgrounds for video conferencing. Dedicated Zoom Rooms are also becoming increasingly popular. The main goal is to provide guests with a positive experience in a space that feels safe and comfortable. These are some of the architecture and design subjects that will be covered in the November issue of the Hotel Business Review.
