Virtual Lunch & Learn Webinar - February 2021 - Going Onsite in 2021: Budget & Contract Implications

Program Description

Hear from event experts Mary Becton of IMN Solutions and BJ Enright of Tradeshow Logic as they share their experiences working with event organizers and vendors to plan, budget, contract, and execute live and hybrid events in 2021 and beyond. Kelly Kilga will facilitate the conversation addressing these key questions and others from the audience:

  • Where do you begin with decision-making when going back to an in-person event in 2021? What timelines should you consider?
  • How do you renegotiate your contracts with convention centers, hotels, decorators, and other vendors to reduce risks and liability?
  • How does the onsite experience in a COVID-world impact the event budget?
  • What budget implications will continue in 2022 and beyond?
