Policy smart: are you on top of your insurance and contracts?
The Covid-19 pandemic has shone a spotlight on event contracts and insurance. There is no denying that the current situation is a once-in-a-lifetime event, and that it may not happen again for a lifetime. But that is little recompense to event organisers around the world, as all events have been cancelled or postponed, and many have not had insurance coverage for the communicable disease at the centre of it.
On 26 March, the Event Marketing Association (EMA) ran an online panel discussion, which Conference News was privileged to moderate. On the panel was Claire Freeman, senior associate at law firm Clifford Chance, and an expert on contractual and insurance matters for the events industry, and someone who I imagine has been very busy over the last two months.
