Omni introduces planner app
Omni Hotels and Resorts has partnered with eMarketing360 to develop a customized meeting planner mobile application, iMeetingPlanner. The app was created for planners to use while conducting meetings at Omni properties to help manage the details for their events. The app is pre-loaded with information about a specific meeting, such as interactive floor plans, menus, agendas, BEOs and more. “Launching eMarketing360’s iMeetingPlanner mobile tool as one of our premiere meeting planner resources enables us to quickly address meeting planners’ needs,” says Tom Santora, chief marketing officer and senior vice president, sales for Omni Hotels and Resorts.
Built for iPads, the mobile app is also compatible with an iPhone or iPod touch. An iPad is supplied to each planner upon arrival to the hotel, or they can use their own device. The program was part of a test pilot at the Omni Mandalay Hotel in Irving, Texas, this spring, and will be deployed across Omni’s collection of convention hotels by the end of the year.
