ITN caught up with Findarr Power, CEO, CNG Travel. Commenting on the partnership: CorporateChoice for us represents 600 agents and approximately 1600 desktops, so we are delighted. Coming into the show we had a backlog of about 3000 agents to install and that backlog now since the show, including the deal we have signed in Asia, has probably gone up to about 8000, so we are confdent that the numbers of agentgs we have projected for next year will be enhanced. So Corporate Choice represents a fantastic partnership for us. It is a win win for them and us.

Travel Group onboard, particularly as our members will have access to the
most comprehensive merchant hotel database and be able to use the latest
