HOLIDAY INN WORLDWIDE CREATES CONSUMER GUIDE TO MAKE REUNION PLANNING EASY; FREE REUNION GUIDE AVAILABLE BY CALLING 800-447-7300

 ATLANTA, June 10 /PRNewswire/ -- Reminiscing may be a wave of the future for the millions of Americans who take part in reunions each year -- and for the companies that serve them.
 According to the firm Reunion Research of San Francisco, each year reunions in the U.S. generate more than 3+ million hotel room-nights and an estimated $200 million in hotel room revenue. With family reunions expected to increase for the next decade and 1993 military reunions marking the 50th anniversary of World War II, Holiday Inn Worldwide has responded by creating a new, 50-page guide available free to anyone planning a reunion.
 With checklists for each type of reunion -- family, school and military -- the guide helps both casual and professional planners learn how and when to set the date, issue invitations, locate family members and choose activities. Dozens of ideas range from hosting a genealogical scavenger hunt to requesting White House Recognition for a 25- or 50-year reunion. The guide also includes a directory of 692 Holiday Inn hotels that serve reunions, and a gift certificate offer worth $25 toward any future Holiday Inn hotel stay.
 "Holiday Inn hotels have helped millions of people reunite with family and friends across America and around the world," said J. Raymond Lewis Jr., executive vice president, Worldwide Sales and Marketing. "It was a natural progression for us to share our experience in this reunion booklet. We're the only major hotel company that is reaching out to reunion planners on this scale."
 For a free copy of the Holiday Inn Reunion Planning Guide, call 1-800-447-7300 or write to Holiday Inn Reunion Planning Guide, Three Ravinia Drive, Suite 2000, Atlanta, GA 30346-2149.
 Holiday Inn Worldwide, which is owned by Bass PLC of the U.K., is the world's leading hotel chain, with more than 1,700 hotels and 330,000 guest rooms in 56 countries and territories around the world.
