The National Society of Black Wedding and Event Professionals (NSBWEP) and ILEA Greater Philadelphia wants you to join us in Philadelphia on March 28th for “Conversations that Connect”. It’s time to engage in some legal talk about your business! What’s the Worst that Could Happen?? Sometimes, truth really is stranger than fiction — especially in the event industry. Most event pros can readily share ridiculous stories with the best of them, including planner and attorney Leah Weinberg. Pairing personal anecdotes with her candid takes on various business legalities, Leah infuses humor into an otherwise-daunting topic by sharing cautious tales of off-the-wall occurrences that aren’t quite as far-fetched as they seem. She’ll teach attendees how to identify and address unusual situations with clear action steps to stay ahead of the curve legally and ethically.
• Must-know legal concerns in the event industry and their ramifications
• Key contract terms to protect your business from the unexpected
• How to terminate a client agreement without solid legal reasoning
• Best practices for adjusting contracts without a lawyer
Your ticket includes:
- Endless Networking
- Seated Dinner
- A guaranteed great time!
- A great opportunity to build connections with two dynamic industry associations.
NSBWEP & ILEA MEMBERS: $65 | NON-MEMBERS: $85
$10 LATE FEE AFTER MARCH 22ND, 5PM
TICKETS ARE NON-REFUNDABLE
