Apr 30, 2001, 01:00 ET from McCord Business Travel Management

    BURBANK, Calif., April 30 /PRNewswire/ -- McCord Business Travel
 Management and Hoffman Entertainment Travel have consolidated the company's
 two Los Angeles area offices into one location in Burbank, California.
     "Bringing all of our staff to one site makes sense from both a client
 service and economic standpoint," explained Mike Wiersema, vice president and
 general manager for McCord's Western Region.  "Our new location keeps us close
 to many of our clients in the entertainment industry.  Plus, combining our
 resources in one location will provide more effective travel management,
 communication and responsiveness to our clients, as well as enhanced customer
 service."
     The new Western Region headquarters will house approximately 75 employees
 in 11,000 square feet of space.  Improvements in the new space include new
 computer reservation systems and an enhanced phone system that will provide
 improved call routing and tracking.  The new office is located at 40 East
 Verdugo, Burbank, California 91502; phone 818-238-4400.
     Transition to the new office was accomplished in phases over the last two
 weeks, with all staff at the new site beginning today.  Staff had previously
 been housed in mid-Wilshire and another Burbank location.
     The office will house two McCord business units, Business Travel
 Management, which specializes in corporate travel needs, and Hoffman
 Entertainment Travel.  McCord formed the Hoffman Entertainment Travel unit
 through the acquisition several years ago of Hoffman Travel.
     Hoffman serves a number of major entertainment companies including
 Universal Studios, Warner Bros., Dreamworks SKG and Creative Artists Agency.
 In addition to providing traditional travel management services, Hoffman
 Entertainment Travel has specialists in production travel and its own airport
 staff to assist with special needs for celebrities and other important
 travelers.
     McCord ranks in the top tier of travel management firms worldwide with
 total annual sales of more than $725 million.  The organization has more than
 925 travel professionals at 95 locations throughout the country, providing a
 complete range of corporate, group and vacation travel services.
