This session will be a step in that direction, by laying out a simple and effective template that you can use in the hospitality environment to prepare for an active threat.

We will show examples of RFPs/RFQs and discuss when each may be appropriate. We will also discuss how the constant changes in venue service charges can and will affect your budget. And, we will provide tips to attendees on how to get ahead of areas that can drive your budget up and how to contain them. The intended result of attending this session is for attendees to feel more comfortable and confident in working with vendors and venues to develop an accurate budget.
