DALLAS, Texas – Groups360, along with Omni Hotels & Resorts, has launched GroupSync Engage, an integrated direct booking software for groups.
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 the end of summer 2021.
Omni is the first brand and non-investor 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 and meeting spaces, as well as F&B and audiovisual equipment, all online.
“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.”
