Whether you’re a novice or an old pro, this webinar will help you keep up with changes in hotel contracts. Hear about cutting-edge clauses that have been created by an attorney specifically to ensure successful and hassle-free meetings and events.

The presentation will cover the “Purpose of the Meetings” clause and why it is important; how to avoid unapproved miscellaneous charges; the importance of the “Overbooked Hotel Prior to Cut-Off Date” clause; the “Audit Arrangements” clause and why you need one; contract wording needed to protect the meeting sponsor under the new privacy laws; a clause that guarantees your meeting and function space will not be moved; and much more.

Attend this webinar to:

  • Identify and understand the problems and solutions behind new clauses being used in hotel contracts
  • Recognize why a “Purpose of the Meeting” clause is necessary and what strategic wording should be used
  • Explain how the European Union’s GDPR applies to even U.S.-based meeting and events and what should be included in contracts to protect the meeting sponsor as the “data controller”
