Key Hotel Contract Clauses with MICE in mind


Remember the saying?  ‘When all else fails – read the instructions’.

Dissatisfaction grows with hotel and conference centre contracts and it is not only a South African issue.  With The MICE Academy’s involvement in a number of dispute resolutions between event decision-makers, organisers and venues – the ambiguous nature of contract wording is noticeable – to the extent of actually not being understood in many of the clauses.  Researching internationally reveals a venue contract should be: (a) Balanced with the rights & remedies spelt-out (b) Clauses should level the playing field with THE golden rule of stating the purpose of the gathering and the standards that should exist at the gathering. The definitive workshop  ‘P’ in Professional Organiser & MICE Travel will provide simple legal explanations and templates in a branded toolkit profile. Participation limits have been reached for the April dates – Thursday May 16th is open.  Check the workshop details at www.miceacademy.co.za  Top tag ‘P’ in Professional’
