Miami, FL   Dec 21, 2006 –   Landry & Kling Meetings At Sea, recognized specialists in cruise meeting services, recently launched a new website developed just for event planners and incentive travel buyers. The content of this website is 100% focused on ship selection, planning and delivery of specialized cruise events and ship charters — Landry & Kling’s exclusive focus for 25 years.

Thousands of travel suppliers compete online for the attention of meeting planners. Fortunately, the internet makes it easy for planners to compare suppliers, and Landry & Kling’s website clearly separates them from the pack.

On this website, real planners speak in flash video clips about their experiences with corporate/ incentive cruises. Users can pick up tips and insights from the clips, and from the site’s “Success Stories” about high-profile events using ship charters. The site will expand users’ cruise industry knowledge via news, planning tools, and ideas drawn from Landry & Kling’s insider perspective.

The site also offers the most recent information on tax deductibility for cruises, and shows destinations available by season; plus photos of many different types of function rooms, and video footage (not available elsewhere) of real incentive winners at awards presentations onboard. Planners can also hear their peers describing initial concerns about cruising vs. their actual experiences.

Busy planners looking for a “one-stop” source for cruises can compare Landry & Kling’s track record, and depth of experience saving clients’ time and money for all kinds of events at sea including incentive cruises, conventions with kids, corporate meetings, continuing education, customer recognition and special dockside “floating hotel” programs such as Jacksonville’s 5 ship charters for Super Bowl 2005.

In today’s highly competitive world, what differentiates a cruise provider is the ability to do more with less, on a consistent basis. This new website will reassure any planner who’s wrestling with cruise-feasibility issues or complex requirements that Landry & Kling’s service can help them find the right cruise solution for every situation.

“When it comes to cruise procurement”, said Jo Kling, President of Landry & Kling“, savvy buyers know that working with us is like cloning themselves, and adding a dollop of cruise clout. After all, if you want your guests to have a unique memory-maker experience, you have to turn a plain vanilla cruise into a hot fudge sundae – and that’s been our claim to fame for 25 years.”

Landry & Kling is a business-to-business cruise resource for meeting and event planners worldwide. Services include ship selection & contract negotiation, cruise planning and on-site management. The company was recently certified as a diversity supplier by WBENC (Women’s Business Enterprise National Council) and has been named one of the “Top Small Businesses in the United States for 2006 by”.
