Innovative Partnership Brings Omni Hotels' Food & Beverage Expertise to
Convention Center

As the opening date of the
luxury Omni Fort Worth Hotel draws near, the hotel has announced its
catering partnership with the Fort Worth Convention Center, which sits
directly adjacent to Omni's newest property. Beginning Jan. 1, 2009, the
Omni Fort Worth Hotel will be the exclusive caterer to the city's
convention facilities -- making the Fort Worth property one of the only
hotels in the U.S. to handle this service for a major city's convention
center. The original agreement dates to 2005 negotiations between Omni and
the City of Fort Worth.

"We look forward to handling all of the convention center's food and
beverage needs -- from concessions to galas," said Ed Netzhammer, general
manager for the Omni Fort Worth Hotel. "Allowing us to cater the Fort Worth
Convention Center will make a meeting planner's job that much easier, as we
are able to streamline their meeting needs and ultimately, be a
'one-stop-shop' for meeting planners."

The luxurious Omni Fort Worth Hotel will serve as the sole catering
service for all food & beverage and concession operations including
meetings, sporting events, musical performances, trade shows and
conventions, as well as other top-shelf entertainment, that stop in Fort
Worth. From the hotel to the convention center facilities, the Omni Fort
Worth Hotel food & beverage staff will provide world-class service, so
meeting and event attendees can expect an elevated dining experience.

"We have complete confidence in the Omni Fort Worth Hotel handling the
catering needs of our outstanding convention center complex," said Kirk
Slaughter, director of the Fort Worth Convention Center. "The Omni brand
has proven superior service and world-class accommodations, so it was an
easy decision to have the Omni Fort Worth handle the food and beverage
operations at our center."

The Fort Worth Convention Center spans 14 blocks of downtown Fort
Worth, and is located within walking distance of downtown hotels,
restaurants, shops and entertainment venues. A $75 million renovation and
expansion was completed in 2003, making the facility one of the finest of
its kind in the Southwest.

Scheduled to open in January 2009, the Omni Fort Worth Hotel will also
boast fine culinary selections including the renowned Bob's Steak & Chop
House, Wine Thief for enthusiasts and novices alike, the Whisky & Rye
sports lounge and Cast Iron for the casual dining experience.
