The Legal Ramifications in Returning to Live Meetings & Meeting Planner and Supplier Roundtable Discussions

July 14, 2021
12:00 PM - 2:00 PM
Virtual Event

MPIMP... you asked and we’re delivering.

As organizations and suppliers prepare to begin holding live meetings again, there are still a number of legal issues both groups must consider.  A top employment law attorney will begin the discussion by providing insights from a legal perspective.  Following the attorney, MPI will then host a roundtable to discuss best practices from both the meeting planner, and the supplier, perspectives.

The first session of the event will feature Shaun Henry, a top employment law attorney who will be providing insights from a legal perspective. 

The second session follows with a meeting planner and supplier roundtable session facilitated to discuss best practices and perspectives from our industry colleagues.
