August 28, 2019 - Education PLUS Luncheon, Wyndham City Center, 700 E Adams St, Springfield, IL 62701

                              Speaker: Heather Reid

                              Topic: Contract Negotiation




One-sided indemnification, termination and cancellation clauses (to name a few!) can be "contract killers" for event hosts! Contract clauses, written by a supplier’s legal counsel to shift financial risks and logistical burdens to event hosts, are often misunderstood and as a result, poorly negotiated. Knowing the right questions to ask to strike balance is essential to protecting your event and your association!  This workshop begins with a two hour  “association executives only” deep dive into what might be encountered in event contracts and how to successfully negotiate critical clauses to achieve a balanced outcome.  Using case studies, and experiential and peer-to-peer learning, we will tackle what executives need to know to create peace of mind, contain costs, reduce risks and ensure thorough logistics – all setting the stage for successful events!  To wrap up the learning – and because appreciating both sides is important to the contract negotiations process - we will end this workshop with an interactive discussion with our industry partners! 

Association Executives and Staff - Join us from 10:00 am -12:00 noon for an "association executives only" deep dive

Industry Partners - Join us at noon for lunch and networking, followed by an interactive discussion from 12:45 - 1:30 pm.
