In this one-hour webinar, Aronson financial assurance expert Greg Plotts and a panel of experts map out Pandemic-era conference and event planning challenges for the remainder of this year—and throughout 2021.

Reducing the risks of having to cancel or reschedule.  From contract terms and insurance, to Cares Act funding, you’ll learn how to protect against legal and financial liabilities should the pandemic disrupt your business or prompt you to cancel or change an event.  Plus, you’ll have the chance to ask your own questions during the Q&A portion of the webinar.

  • How organizations like yours are handling cancellation and rescheduling with conference venues and hotels
  • An attorney’s advice on navigating the legal aspects of cancellations
  • Insurance policies: what to look out for now and down the road
  • How (and what) to claim in business interruption insurance
  • Accounting considerations: proper treatment of event cancellation/rescheduling before fiscal year-end
  • The latest information on Cares Act and other possible funding

By bringing all these considerations together, this webinar helps you address two key demands of the Pandemic Era: staying flexible and protecting your organization against legal and financial liabilities.
