Yes, One Word Matters! How to Navigate Hotel and Vendor Contracts
Do you know what all of those facility- and vendor-proposed contract clauses mean? In this interactive session, we'll dissect and reconstruct contract clauses to teach you how to ensure that your company and event are protected. You'll:
 •  Gain perspective that enhances your ability to meet suppliers in the middle
 •  Learn to craft contracts that include language that addresses each parties' specific needs
 •  Recognize and limit your risk when executing a contract
