Embassy Suites by Hilton - Cincinnati NE/Blue Ash: May 17th, 2017 - May 17th, 2017
Dr. Tyra Hilliard, PhD, Esq, CMP
ABOUT THE PROGRAM:
Although performance clauses like attrition and cancellation are challenging, it is sometimes the other clauses that create the biggest challenges. And beware to the group that overlooks them! Addressing issues like construction and remodeling, conflicting in-house groups, surcharges and fees, environmental issues and more, this session will help prepare you for trends that are affecting meetings and, by extension, meeting contracts.
• Know what to ask for and how to deal with pending construction and remodeling that may not have been on the radar at the time of contracting.
• Assess the effects of the current environment on contract negotiations—including everything from drone photography to the latest surcharges and fees being levied by hotels.
• Learn how to address in the contract the environmental and altruistic issues of concern to the meeting organizer and its attendees.
