Meeting contracts include essential terms that can make or break an event's success. Attrition and cancellation provisions can cause thousands in payments from one party to another. And liability clauses such as indemnification, insurance and alcoholic beverage service shift responsibility for injuries and damages. It's critical for planners and suppliers to understand what's in these provisions so they can be used fairly in every contract.
