Online Masterclass: Force Majeure - Event Contract Cancellations in the time of COVID-19

February 9, 2021
4:00 PM - 5:30 PM

Force majeure and other important considerations for both planners & venues


Due to the disruptions caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, event planners must make difficult decisions on whether to cancel meetings, conferences, expos and other events. It is unclear how long some government orders that shutter non-essential businesses or prohibit gatherings will remain in effect. Organizations might choose to wait to cancel until closer to the event dates to determine whether the facts will support the standard required by the contract. But it can risk escalated cancellation penalties if the force majeure clause ultimately does not apply.

Today planners should look at whether the event can be cancelled accordingly to the general sales terms or under the contract’s force majeure provision. On the other hand they should also think about event insurance coverage solutions for online, hybrid and also in-person events.

During our two round table sessions on February 09th, 2021 (16:00-17:30 CET) “Cancellation policies” & February 16th, 2021 (16:00-17:30 CET) “Insurance coverage” our selected experts will present best practices and advices. We will open the floor with all attendees to discuss case studies.


You can register for both sessions (with reduced attendance fee) or choose only one of the two topics:

Members 10,00€ per session or 15,00€ for two sessions

Members 35,00€ per session or 60,00€ for two sessions
