ORLANDO, FL -- (MARKET WIRE) -- April 29, 2005 -- Five VIPs (Very Important Poultry) from Peabody Hotels are scheduled to arrive at Houston's International Airport, at 11:30 a.m., Monday, May 2nd. They'll be "shaking their tails" for delegates attending the 6th Annual Partners Meeting of ConferenceDirect. The event will be held at the George R. Brown Convention Center, 1001 Avenida de las Americas on Wednesday, May 4th.

When The Peabody Ducks arrive at Houston's International Airport on Monday, May 2nd, they will be met by a stretch limousine and whisked off to the Hotel Icon in downtown Houston. They will be accompanied by Duck Master Daniel Fox, resplendent in his scarlet and gold trimmed attire, who oversees the care of the ducks' every need.
