I just heard about a new company called hotelnegotiating.com, which offers one-on-one contract negotiation coaching to event and meeting planners. They don’t negotiate the contract for you or offer legal advice, but they do teach you how to become a better negotiator and work with you on specific contracts, according to the website.
If anyone tries this new service out, please let me know. I’d love to know if it’s as useful as it sounds on paper.
