Orbitz Worldwide, the online travel company, has partnered with The Win Group, a third-party meeting planning firm, to help corporate planners with their meeting needs. Orbitz for Business and Travelport for Business (both are found at www.travelportcorporatesolutions.com) now will have meeting planning tabs on their corporate travel sites that enable clients to send meeting requirements to The Win GroupÕs staff, who will then handle event arrangements as needed, including site selection, contract negotiations, F&B coordination and registration.

The Tarsus Group, an international media group that owns sites such as the Trade Show News Network (www.tsnn.com), has acquired the DMS Group LLC, which owns the CVBHotRates.com website. Tarsus also has purchased the U.K.-based Internetworks Limited, which runs www.exhibitions.co.uk. With the acquisitions, Tarsus continues to broaden its online events offerings, which also include www.tsnn.co.uk, www.venues.org.uk and Events:review.com (eventsreview.com).
