  Meeting technology and legal responsibility - do you know the latest?

The worst happens and an unexpected event occurs at your event:  Medical emergency, weather or even terrorism.

  • Can you be held legally responsible for injuries and damages if you do not develop an adequate emergency plan?
  • Do you have sufficient insurance and indemnification in place?
  • Do you have the right emergency plan?
  • How can your diligent preparations mitigate risk for your organization?
Learn how to limit your exposure during our interactive presentation by industry attorney Tom Sayer.  A graduate of Cornell University, Mr. Sayer has his own practice with a number of clients in the Hospitality Industry, as well as serving as Outside General Counsel for Pacifica Companies for the last fifteen years.

Mr. Sayers’ presentation will be followed by hands-on demonstrations from various cutting edge technology providers (see complete list below) . At just 15 to 20 minutes each, you’ll have the opportunity to rotate through various stations.
