New iPad App for Meeting Planners & Incentive Specialists Provides Quick & Easy Access to ALHI’s Portfolio of 160+ Four- & Five-Diamond Hotel & Resort Members

Meeting and convention professionals, incentive specialists, association executives, and business executives involved with planning and procuring meetings or programs will be interested in the new iPad app that was just launched by Associated Luxury Hotels International (ALHI).

The app is 100% native, meaning that once downloaded it functions even without internet connectivity, also while in-flight or on the road, providing quick and easy access to ALHI’s portfolio of 160+ Four- and Five-Diamond quality Member hotels and resorts worldwide that specifically serve the meetings and incentive marketplace.

The free ALHI app enables planners to access useful information, photos, floor plans, and capacity charts for each ALHI Member hotel and resort. This includes details about each property’s accommodations, meeting facilities, dining and recreation offerings, as well as destination information. One of the unique features of the app is a “Favorites” function that allows users to select up to six properties to compare key features side-by-side. Planners can then choose to share the “Favorites” with colleagues for their review.alhi-021114

In addition, planners can use the app to search for the properties, destinations, venues, and/or cruise ships that will best suit their programs’ objectives, unique desires, and specific needs. The app provides the ability to search based on ALHI’s 12 defined specialty segments within its portfolio, which includes the “ALHI Big Box Solutions,” “Level 5 Collection,” “Golf Collection,” “Beach & Island Collection,” “Entertainment & Gaming Solutions,” “City Solutions,” “U-200 Gems,” “Historic Collection,” “Mountain Collection,” “Caribbean Collection,” “Passport Collection,” and “Ocean Line Collection.” In addition, the app enables you to search by hotel name, state, U.S. region, country, the number of guest rooms, and/or the amount of meeting space.

The ALHI app was developed by ITM Mobile, a U.S.-based mobile technology start-up that is positioned to “lead the way” as it relates to creating and delivering innovative solutions for the lodging and meeting industries.

To access and use the free ALHI app, planners simply need to: go to the iTunes App Store, search for “ALHI Sales,” and download it to your iPad; or click onitunes.apple.com/us/app/alhi/id765341138?mt=8 from your iPad; or contact your nearest ALHI Global Sales Office. ALHI has 20 professionally-staffed Global Sales Offices to serve, with locations in Atlanta, Boston, Chicago, Dallas, Denver, Houston, Kansas City, Louisville, New York City, Orlando, Philadelphia, Phoenix, Richmond, Savannah, Southern California (3), Toronto, Washington, D.C., and Washington (state). Go to www.ALHI.com to identify the “ALHI Team” sales professionals in your state/area.

“We created this app in response to input from our ALHI Global Sales team and our Industry Advisory clients,” said ALHI CEO David Gabri. “Meeting and incentive professionals, and business executives can use the app whenever they need to quickly access information about ALHI Member hotels or resorts, without having to worry about a Wi-Fi connection. This is yet another resource to make it easy for planners to coordinate their programs, in addition to our comprehensive ALHI Guide and ALHI website, and in conjunction with working with their skilled and experienced ALHI Global Sales professional.”

Thomas Hallin, co-founder of ITM Mobile, said, “We are very excited about this opportunity working with ALHI. Though fairly new on the U.S. market, we have over 10 years of experience developing mobile technology for meetings. This app, which puts the entire portfolio of ALHI Member hotels and resorts at meeting planners’ fingertips, makes it quick and easy for planners to narrow down their initial search for destinations and properties that meet their criteria, and to share these with their sales professional or other decision-makers within their organization.”
