 Venue Contracts

Venue Search London recommends this one day course for corporate event buyers who have responsibility for booking venues, designed to save you both time and money when booking conference and event venues.

TitleThe Venue Contracts Minefield
DateFriday November 28th 2014 - 09:30-16:30
LocationThe Mermaid Conference and Events Centre, London EC4V 3DB
SpeakersNick Milne & Douglas Wignall

Programme summary:

Are venues legally entitled to charge 100% on cancellation?

How do you avoid being charged for hidden extras?

How do you insure against weather disruption or force majeure?

These questions and many others will be answered when, due to popular demand, Meetings & Incentive Travel magazine are again staging a one-day interactive seminar on all aspects of venue contracts for the events industry - featuring Nick Milne, Conference Manager at Robinson College Cambridge and Douglas Wignall (lawyer), Douglas Wignall & Co.

You will find out what to look for in terms and conditions - focusing in on the paragraphs that matter. It's also about agreeing standard terms and conditions for a range of events, rather than having to reinvent the wheel with a new set. Also, how do you address the stringent demands of venues in respect of minimum numbers where you have limited control over your final delegate/guest list.

Highlights include:

  • Latest industry developments
  • Terms and conditions – what has changed in the last 12 months
  • Liquidated damages v double recovery
  • Risk management
  • Yield management

There will be ample opportunities for everyone to share their experiences.

First delegate price£ 350 + VAT
Additional delegate price£ 299 + VAT
