How do I get directories at no cost?
This is a very popular request by many properties. You can receive your guest directory through the advertising support of the local businesses in your community. Our sales representative will stay at your hotel to obtain the advertising from your area. The production costs of the directory product you choose can potentially be deferred or reduced. A directory will be produced based on the support generated. For more information, see our directory product guide in our Online Shopping Section or contact one of our project coordinators.
What if there is not enough advertising support?
The advertising support needed is greatly measured by the Guest Directory product you choose. In the event the minimum participation is not achieved, we can do one of the following:
- Return all checks to sponsors without prejudice. The Guest Directory will not be published.
- Substitute a Guest Directory product, which more adequately reflects the advertising revenues received.
- The Hotel will pay the difference between the advertising revenues achieved and the total cost of the Guest Directory product requested.
Where does the sales rep stay while selling the advertising space?
Our agreement requires the hotel to provide a complimentary sleeping room, parking, local phone calls and fax privileges for a maximum of 2 – 3 weeks, depending on the directory product you choose.
What do I need to provide RGI?
Our sales representative will meet with the GM to coordinate copy information and artwork for the directory. All copy including menus, property layout, area churches and attractions, etc must be provided to the sales representative by the end of their sales efforts.

How do I schedule a Sales Representative for my property?
Contact a project coordinator at 800-317-8723, or submit a request online from this site. A project coordinator will contact you to schedule a convenient time to begin work.
Can directories be produced without advertising?
Yes. The advertising support is a way to defer or reduce the cost of producing a guest directory for your property. However, there are many reasons a property may choose not to allow advertisers in their directories. The style of your property, brand specifications or requirements, or a previously unpleasant experience just to name a few. In any case, we can design and produce a directory which will fully complement your property and motif at an affordable price. Consult our guest directory guide or contact a project coordinator for details.
Are there cancellation charges?
In extraordinary cases where the cancellation of an order becomes necessary, the customer is required to pay for work performed to date. (See our policies.) Design or graphic fees originally included with product pricing will be due in accordance with the effective bill rate at that time.
