INK ENTERTAINMENT AND LOEWS HOTELS & RESORTS ANNOUNCE STRATEGIC PARTNERSHIP IN
                     HOTEL HOSPITALITY INDUSTRY IN CANADA

      New collaboration will present an exceptional culinary experience

INK Entertainment, Canada’s premiere hospitality and Entertainment Company
alongside Loews Hotels & Resorts, announce the first step in a future business
alignment with the opening of La Société, an upscale Parisian style bistro,
within the newly renovated Loews Hôtel Vogue in Montreal. The partnership
signifies a greater value in luxurious and exceptional guest experiences, at
an accessible level to the market; the restaurant is slated to open in March
2013.

“This partnership is the first of its kind, and marks a heightened level in
standards within hotel and culinary experiences. I am looking forward to what
the collaboration holds for both brands in the future,” says Charles Khabouth,
President, INK Entertainment. “La Société within the Loews Hôtel Vogue
Montreal marks the beginning of a promising long-time partnership between INK
Entertainment and Loews Hotels & Resorts.”

La Société within Loews Hôtel Vogue will be modeled after the premiere bistro
in Toronto and will feature built-in furnishings outfitted in rich mahogany,
custom marble mosaic tile floors and aged leather as designed by interior
design firm, Munge Leung. The highlight of the bistro will be a jaw-dropping
handcrafted distinctive stain glass ceiling inspired by Khabouth’s visits to
old-world boulangeries, cafés and patisseries in Paris, France.

“Loews Hôtel Vogue is an iconic property in Montreal," said Paul Whetsell,
President & CEO, Loews Hotels & Resorts. "Partnering with the renowned brand,
INK Entertainment to incorporate La Societe, will only strengthen our presence
in the region and throughout Canada."

The Loews Hôtel Vogue is popular among celebrities and business travelers and
is a vital part of the destination. This year, the hotel has undergone a
transformation of more than $10 million in renovations to the hotel’s lobby,
guestrooms and building façade. The new contemporary flair will be completed
in Spring 2013, and will showcase modern colors and design.

Located just steps away from major museums, luxury boutiques and the business
district, La Société within the Loews Hôtel Vogue will deliver a unique
experience. The restaurant’s reputation of serving high-quality, delicious
dishes, drinks and deserts will be under the management of Executive Chef Sean
Reeve, and promises to be the highlight of this vibrant neighborhood.
