We're living in volatile political times in which policy makers are passing laws that may run counter to your group’s beliefs.

Many groups are boycotting these destinations, but how does it impact meeting planners in a legal, contractual and logistical sense, both in the U.S. and internationally?

Join Meetings Today and destination strategy expert David Kliman, owner of the Kliman Group; international meetings expert Eric Rozenberg; meetings industry attorney Tyra Hilliard; and Cathy Mason, senior director of events for the Young Presidents Organization and 2019 Meetings Trendsetter for this free one-hour webinar taped at IMEX America 2019.

By participating in this webinar, participants will learn the following:

  • What destinations are struggling with travel and meetings boycotts.
  • How meeting planners can protect their organizations by using the proper contract language and clauses.
  • Tips for how meeting planners can communicate to stakeholders the risk of contract cancellation due to a boycott.

Learn more about the issue by reading our destination boycotts story and legal perspectives on the issue—and a critical boycott-related clause to include in your contracts—from Tyra Hilliard.  And catch an alternate take from Lisa Sommer Devlin.

Earn CEUs: The Events Industry Council has reviewed the learning objectives of this activity and has indicated that attendees will receive 1 CE hours in the Strategic Planning Domain of the CMP or CMP-HC Standards.
