Direct Energy Centre, Toronto. ICCA and AIPC have published a guide to contracting with convention centres.
The International Congress and Convention Association (ICCA) and the International Association of Congress Centres (AIPC) have collaborated to produce a publication dealing with convention-centre contracts.
Aimed to assist new centres, clients dealing with convention centres for the first time, students and newcomers to the industry, the document features simple terminology, free of legal jargon.
It is recognized that differing legal systems, business cultures and customs dictate that there can never be a single version of a contract that would be applicable worldwide.
To that end, this guide provides a starting point to understanding the main subject that should be addressed in any contract.
The final document draws from the experience and views of senior centre representatives from around the world and it is hoped that it will promote a better understanding as to why certain clauses are included in contracts.
