It's a meeting planner's nightmare—you're not adequately protected against attrition penalties in the contract you signed, the meeting or convention is fast approaching, and now you've come to realize you won't make your room block. Worse yet, the vexing problem of housing pirates could be to blame.

Join Meetings Focus and a panel of housing experts for an On-Location Video Broadcast, August 5, 2014, held at MPI WEC in Minneapolis, to discover how to protect your organization before, during and after an event. We'll discuss, in-depth, the growing problem of "housing pirates"—unauthorized third-party groups that misrepresent themselves to attendees in an effort to poach your room block, or worse yet, steal their financial information!

By participating in this video broadcast, you will learn the following:

  • How to add contract clauses that protect your organization from attrition.
  • What steps to take if you find yourself in a room block bind.
  • Good benchmarks for setting reasonable attrition terms.
  • How to fight housing pirates to protect your attendees and your organization.

This broadcast is worth 1 hour of Project Management credit toward CMP certification through the CIC.
