No one has been left unaffected by the COVID-19 pandemic and the events industry has been exceptionally hard hit. As event hosts consider moving forward with future in-person events there are many more questions than there are answers. This interview-style session will examine the current landscape of contract negotiations and discussions involving termination and force majeure, share contract lessons learned to date, and provide insights into possible future considerations for events and event contracts. In addition, an update on Planner Protect’s national initiative COVID-19: CHRONICLING THE LESSONS LEARNED will be provided.
- Review termination and force majeure clauses in event contracts and how current negotiations due to COVID-19 have been shaped by them
- Share observations and lessons learned to date that will inform contract negotiation moving forward
- Discuss future events and how contract negotiations can support them
Note: CE accreditation for this webinar is pending approval.
