Associated Luxury Hotels has expanded its global footprint, collection of member hotels and resorts, sales, marketing and hospitality service with the acquisition of Frankfurt, Germany-based Worldhotels. By adding World hotels, it grows  its current portfolio of Global Sales Organization and hospitality services. ALH already owns and operates Associated Luxury Hotels International, making the Worldhotels acquistion a real coup.

Worldhotels is a leading global group that consists of independent upper-scale and luxury-level hotels and resorts. It also includes independent hotel brands around the world. Their primary focus is on individual business traveler leisure and meeting solutions.

\]Both ALHI and Worldwide are planning to expand their market, talent pool, and geographic outreach which makes their partnership’s strategic outreach incredibly beneficial. For more information, visit alhi.com, worldhotels.com and alhworld.com.

Phoenix Sky Harbor International calls itself “America’s Friendliest Airport,” and a pilot program they’ve launched to help travelers eliminate stress and uncertainly about the time it will take to go through security might help them cement that reputation. Called PHX Reserve and boasting the tagline “Save Your Place. Reduce Your Wait,” the virtual queuing program allows travelers to reserve a specific time to go through the TSA Security Checkpoint line.

 

If you’re considering a number of venues for a spring or summer drive-to meeting, you might want to make proximity one of the key elements you assess. The latest tracking study of American travelers by the market research firm Longwoods International suggests that the higher cost of filling their gas tank might lead some would-be attendees to put their travel plans on hold. 

 

In early March, Meeting Professionals International released a statement regarding the invasion of Ukraine: 

“In a show of support for the people of Ukraine, MPI will immediately suspend business with all companies in Russia. In addition, any plans to formalize a chapter in Russia will be paused….We remain concerned for the well-being of our community and our MPI members in Russia and Ukraine who were already seeking to climb out of the shadow of this pandemic and are now experiencing these unprecedented challenges.”
