COURSE DESCRIPTION: Venue Contracts…Maximizing Your Choice of an Audiovisual Provider

How would you handle an unanticipated budget increase of $40,000 because the venue’s contract had fine print that dictated your client had to use the in-house preferred supplier for all breakout rooms? Think this is far-fetched? Not at all – true story! This presentation outlines the “Buyer’s Right to Freedom of Choice” clause developed by the Exhibition Services & Contractors Association and lays out the 11 points of consideration for building maximum flexibility for choosing third party suppliers to service your events. The presentation specifically addresses choosing your audiovisual provider and reinforces that having maximum flexibility in choosing an AV supplier begins before the venue contract is signed! Being able to work with your own preferred AV supplier begins with negotiating solid and comprehensive language into the venue contract. Join Heather Reid of Planner Protect for this not to be missed session!

Learner Objectives

Understand the 11 considerations of the “Buyer’s Right to Freedom of Choice”
Learn how to apply the 11 considerations to your venue contract negotiations
Discuss current industry practices that are inhibiting the choice of third-party suppliers.
