What you’ll learn:
RFPs? Attrition? Guarantees? This webinar will focus on more detailed tips and tricks from what to ask for in a contract to protect your organization, to how to save money on that dreaded food and beverage bill. So often marketers get thrown into the event planner role without knowing all the details that go with it. If you’re wondering what you can negotiate in a contract, things you can ask of the hotel, or how to save money on events without looking stingy, then you’ve come to the right place. We will also go over some event technology to make your life easier.
This presentation is designed for communicators who are newly involved in event planning and would like a more specific look at the logistics from the contract to event execution – particularly with a tighter budget. Be sure to bring your questions!
