ICP PARTNERS WITH PLANSOFT PlanSoft has formed an alliance with Adams Business Media, publisher of ICP. As of September, visitors to the ABM Web site, www. meetingsnet.com, are a single click away from the PlanSoft Network, a database listing every North American hotel (more than 8,000) with at least 5,000 square feet of meeting space. Thousands of international properties will be added by year's end. Many listings include pano-ramic views of meeting rooms, guest rooms, and public space. With PlanSoft's electronic RFP system, users can contact dozens of hotels about meetings, and get responses within a designated time frame (48 hours on average). Listings for 14,000 other meeting suppliers also are included.

The new Planning Guide section of the PlanSoft site offers feature stories and daily news articles on meeting planning issues, supplied by the meetings magazines of Adams Business Media.
