Expert presenters will provide insights on key elements of successful
events when Meetings Quest is held in Atlantic City June 28–29
In the first educational session, “Your Market, Your Contracts and How You Negotiate Them,” Jonathan Howe – founding partner of Howe & Hutton and general counsel for Meeting Professionals International – will discuss the key elements that need to be considered when negotiating hotel contracts. As if negotiating hotel contracts was not complex enough, meeting planners must be mindful of other contractual considerations such as those related to group activities. Equipped with Howe’s expert insights, attendees at Meetings Quest will learn to navigate beyond the “contracts” maze. Howe’s session will address some of the overlooked – and often misunderstood – contract clauses that meeting planners need to understand. Howe will also reveal what clauses meeting planners may want to leave out as well as those that they need to include.
Event safety has become a top priority for meeting planners as travelers’ concerns are heightened by ongoing terrorist and security threats. A second educational session, “Crisis Management and Event Security,” will feature Steven Hacker, the former president of the International Association of Exhibitions & Events. Hacker will provide an overview of the steps to take when organizing an event and will detail available resources for appropriately planning for the safety and security of attendees. He will also discuss how to respond should an event be affected by a crisis.
Meetings Quest in Atlantic City will also include an Opening Celebration on the city’s iconic Boardwalk, a keynote address by seven-time Olympic medalist Shannon Miller and an afternoon appointment-based expo.
