WESTCHESTER COUNTY, NY (February 8, 2005) -- EMCVenues

Jody Wallace, President of EMCVenues has announced the appointment of conference center veteran Chuck Ocheltree as Vice President of Operations for EMCVenues, responsible for overseeing the development of new Executive Meetings Centers and EMCVenues standards as well as the development of repositioning plans, sales training and operations. He will assume responsibilities for the acquisition of new properties in the EMCVenues portfolio.

Ocheltree brings vast experience in the conference center industry with more than 25 years in sales, marketing and management with major hospitality management companies and independent resort operations, specializing in conference centers and high-end resorts. Most recently, Chuck served as Senior Vice President for Sentry Hospitality for seven years, where he was responsible for the sales and operations of conference facilities including Morgan Stanley Training Centers; the Conference Center Niagara Falls; Bald Head Island Resort; Sea Trail Conference & Golf Resort; The Legends Conference & Golf Resort, and Marietta Conference Resort.

Said Jody Wallace, President of EMCVenues, “we are delighted to have Chuck join the EMCVenues Team at this critical period in the growth of EMCVenues. Chuck's experience and hands-on contribution to our operations will prove valuable to our customers and to our rapidly expanding portfolio of venue partners.”

EMCVenues, the national resource for the largest network of conference centers and resorts in North America, was founded in 2001 out of the identified need to provide meeting and training professionals with one central point of contact to book their meeting needs at Conference Centers. The Company has grown to represent more than 100 centers and resorts in the US and Canada

Chuck has served in sales and marketing capacities at well known conference centers including Peachtree Executive Conference Center, The Millennium Broadway in New York City and Doral Arrowwood in Westchester County, NY. His hospitality experience includes key sales and management positions with Hilton Hotels, Ramada Inns and Stouffer Hotels

Chuck is an active member of Hotel Sales & Marketing International (Atlanta Chapter), Meeting Professionals International (New York Chapter) and the Independent Association of Conferences & Conventions where he served for five terms on the Board of Directors as well as on the Membership Committees, Marketing Committee and Customer Advisory Board.
