Confessions of a Meeting Planner
Five things I would share about POST-Covid hotel contracts.
We sat down with our Program Designer extraordinaire, Melanie Zegers. We asked Melanie to share the FIVE best contract behaviours to work towards, POST-Covid.
Melanie shared cases with us of hotel partners that would not show flexibility on damages for postponements due to COVID-19 restrictions. We likely will not work with those properties in the future.
