One other thing to consider is Event Insurance, many aspects that could affect your event can be covered by specific insurance. For instance poor weather could result in fewer people attending the event; your keynote speaker and main draw for the conference could be ill, leaving many people demanding a refund; a train strike could result in chaos for a city location again reducing attendance. So whilst negotiating your contracts don’t forget to investigate the possibility of insuring your event too – it could save you 100’s of £’s and give you the peace of mind you need when booking.
