HYATT TAPS CRITICAL MASS TO CREATE CENTRAL WEB SITE

Published on .

(Aug. 14, 2001) -- Hyatt Hotels Corp. is expanding its 12-year-old relationship with Omnicom Group's Rapp Collins Worldwide, New York, by tapping Calgary-based Critical Mass to develop a unified Web site for the hotel chain's worldwide brands.

Critical Mass will incorporate Hyatt's 40 North American Web sites and 100 sites around the world to create a new Hyatt.com -- a central site for the company's 203 properties that include Park Hyatt, Grand Hyatt, Hyatt Regency and Hyatt Resorts brands.

In an effort to integrate Hyatt's marketing efforts, Critical Mass will work with Rapp Collins, which designed and manages Hyatt's GoldPassport program and Web site, to merge the new Hyatt.com with the loyalty program.

Critical Mass is part of Rapp Collins' interactive network RappDigital and is 50% owned by Omnicom. -- Cara Beardi
