Overview: From negotiating contracts with suppliers, to buying the best insurance, and simply understanding terms such as force majeure, there is a lot to wrap your head around when planning events in the post-COVID era. The good news is, you don't have to figure it out on your own! MCI Australia and Melbourne Convention Bureau have brought together an expert panel to delve into all of these topics, and help you understand not only the conversations you should be having, but also the questions you should be asking to prepare yourself and your organisation for your next business event.

Key learnings include:

  • What to look out for in contracts
  • An overview of what force majeure is, and what it means for you
  • What conversations to have with your venue to ensure you’re hiring the right amount of space whilst considering COVID-safety requirements
