ABSTRACT

Legal responsibility The legal obligations associated with event management includes the negotiation and execution of the contracts and other legal documents associated with the acquisitions and endeavors of the event project, and oversight of the lawful design and implementation of the policies, procedures, and practices of the event organization and its representatives. The organization and production of meetings and events carries with it significant responsibilities to ensure the protection of the personal and property rights of others – those involved in the event and those impacted by the event. It is critical to understand the nature of legal liability and carefully consider the duties associated with accepting and controlling event liabilities.
