I am just starting out in the events industry, in addition to my day job. I specialise in intimate social events (in London) like private dining, birthdays, baby & bridal showers, wedding anniversaries and christenings etc.
Can anyone offer advice on the legal/contract/insurance side of events please?
My main query is whether the event planner should be named on vendor invoices/contracts? Or if the client of the event planner should be listed on the contract/booking forms instead?
Also what qualifications and/or accreditations do event planners need, in order to get commission from vendors?
I'm working on an event at the moment, and two hotel venues I have contacted said that I require either a TID number or IATA, in order to get an 8% commission from them.
