Ripped from the headlines! In this interactive session, we will discuss the legal and risk management issues raised by of some of the unusual, unique, and downright bizarre things that happen in the meetings, hospitality, and events industry every day. Though meeting professionals rarely end up in court, these novel situations tend to affect contracts, budgets, and sometimes reputations. Learn from situations that happen to others so that you can improve the way you do business. Updated regularly based on current events, this session in the past has included bugs, vermin, mold, statues, tragic accidents, murder, assault, law and policy changes not in our favor, and surcharges galore. Also addressed will be some creative contract clauses to address some of the crazy things that can happen in our industry. Bring your own examples of legal situations, crises, risks (or near-misses) and snafus to add to the mix.
