The often-asked questions about hotel contracts is "What do I not know that I should know?" and “What are the hidden fees and conditions about which I should be aware?” When it comes just to guest room accommodations, the questions we ask, answers we receive and conditions we incorporate into our contracts can impact the degree of comfort for guests and the budgetary implications of our meetings. With alternatives to hotel rooms available for all guests and market conditions still in favor of sellers, all parties to the contract need to be on their toes!

Join Meetings Today and meetings industry educator Joan Eisenstodt, chief strategist for Eisenstodt Associates (, and top meetings industry attorney Kelly Bagnall, for this one-hour webinar that just may head off any room block disasters that could torpedo your meeting.
