Planner Vs. Supplier

and the Battle for Hotel Contracts


The battle of contract negotiations between Convention Planner & Supplier. Negotiating hotel and convention center contracts can be a tedious back and forth process. In this session, we "take the gloves off" and examine steps in the process, cover the key basics for successful negotiations and engage the audience in idea share from both the planner and the supplier sides with take-aways you can start using tomorrow!
