Contract Reviews

If you’re not reading AND understanding every single word of your event contracts, you could be putting your event at risk!

Planner Protect will “forensically” review your next event contract to ensure that it is fair and balanced! We will work with you to ensure that the contract reflects and protects your best interests.

Our services include:

  • Line-by-line breakdown of suggested revisions to the contract
  • Identification and explanation of key clauses that put your event at greatest risk financially and logistically
    – and proven means by which to change them
  • Identification of opportunities for untapped value in contract features and concessions
  • Insights from a professional event planner with contacts in accounting and hospitality contract law

For one flat, transparent fee, Planner Protect Inc will provide a full written report within 4 business days. Unlimited email and telephone support is available until the contract is signed.
